The Waterless market
The Waterless UV process, which requires quite significant investment, is still somewhat limited to niche markets. It is mainly used for printing high added value products (luxury items, labels, etc.). For the same reasons, UV Waterless technology is only really a viable solution for small and medium sized print runs (from 100 to 25,000 copies).
Waterless UV printing is mainly employed in 2 applications:

• Labels: Waterless UV is replacing letterpress UV printing for high quality print jobs.

• CDs/DVDs: In this case, Waterless UV is replacing serigraphic UV printing, since it allows identical intensity but higher print speeds.
