Some of the Physical Properties of UV Jet Printed Furniture Surfaces
Research subject and fields:
This study researches some physical properties of furniture surfaces on which UV jet printing is applied. To this end, UV protected digital printing ink was applied on melamine faced chipboard (MFC) and Printpan (Pp) panels and their surface resistance to cold liquids (TS 12720), hot liquids (TS 4980), dry heat (TS EN 12722), wet heat (TS EN 12721), water vapor (TS EN 438-2), glowing cigarette (TS 4756), and abrasion (TS 4755) was identified. As a result, it was found that UV jet printing ink applied on melamine faced chipboard and printpan panels is not resistant to cold liquid, water vapor, glowing cigarette and abrasion but relatively resistant to hot liquid, dry heat and wet heat.
