Is UV Ink Environmentally Friendly& How to Minimize the Harm
UV ink is more environmentally friendly than traditional printing pigment (solid, liquid and powdery). Especially when printed on the surface of the material for up to 12 hours, it is almost odorless and can be directly exposed by the skin. But it still contains a small amount of toxicity. After all, the composition of the ink contains chemicals.
We need to understand that the more cheaper the inferior UV ink is, the more toxic it is. Compared to the imported high-end UV ink, the toxic damage can reach 10 times or even higher.
The harm of UV ink is mainly in two aspects:
1.The corrosiveness of the ink:
A few people is sensitive to the skin. After contact with the UV ink, rashes and allergies may occur. It is necessary to wash and rub the ointment in time. If you accidentally splash into your eyes, flush it with clean water immediately.
2. The odor of ink is irritating:
Some people, especially those with sensitive rhinitis and respiratory tract inflammation, are easily irritated and cause discomfort.
1.Keep the indoor ventilationsmooth. Do not install the UV printer in a closed and ventilated place;
2. If conditions permit, you can isolate the UV printer operating room separately;
3.If there is no separate conditions, choose to wear masks to filter;
4.Technicians should exercise more daily, eat more fruits, pay attention to diet and so on. This will improve their immunity.
Whether it is the operator or the user itself, there is no need to worry too much about the UV ink. This is within the acceptable range of the human body and there are few cases of discomfort. If you are a woman during pregnancy, we recommend that you do not operate the device.
