Most technological processes involved in polygraphic production are based on the interaction between liquids and solids. An important role is thereby attributed to the wetting phenomenon which ensures ink transfer and adhesion of printing inks, primers, varnishes to the surface of substrates. The interaction between ink and solids in the printing process provides intermolecular interaction in both, the liquid (cohesion) and the liquid with solids phases (adhesion). This research studies the influence of surface energy of polymeric films and polarity on spreading and adhesion of flexographic UV-inks.
