WHY DIGITAL PRINTING?

Digital printing is becoming increasingly popular in widely differing areas of application, as it makes a decisive contribution to the individualisation of products – regardless of whether they are kitchen fronts, furniture or laminate flooring. The digital printing process is also being used more and more frequently outdoors, e.g. for windows, front doors or garden furniture.
ADLER was involved in the technology at an early stage and offers an optimal system solution for digital printing, on the one hand as an adhesion promoter and on the other hand for surface upgrading.

IN DIGITAL PRINTING, PRIMERS AND COATINGS MUST MEET SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS:

  • ADLER primers (e.g. Innolux Haftpromotor) prepare the substrate so that the ink can bond optimally with the surface. They also increase dot-sharp colour reproduction and prevent ink absorption. 
  • The ADLER top coat (e.g. Innolux Decklack) protects the surface from chemical and mechanical stress. The ADLER coating system is characterised by very good compatibility with the printing ink.

ADVANTAGES OF ADLER COATING SYSTEMS IN DIGITAL PRINTING:

  • Perfect mechanical resistance thanks to ADLER Topcoats
  • Flexible gloss levels and surface structures
  • Efficient production – even for short print runs
  • Personalisation can be easily implemented
  • Adhesion to various materials such as wood, glass, melamine

Digital printing technology with its infinite versatility will revolutionise the flooring and furniture industry. Joiners, glaziers and kitchen builders have discovered the use of personalised decor and furniture fronts. Designers and interior designers appreciate the new possibilities of living space design.

On top of that, there are almost no limits when it comes to substrate selection. Whether melamine resin boards, plastics, wood and wood-based materials or glass, ADLER adhesive primers create the optimum bond for every substrate.
