LCR Hallcrest Smart Labels Now Target $3.5 Billion UV Cured Ink Markets

June 15, 2016

Glenview, IL – June 15, 2016 – LCR Hallcrest manufactures and markets Thermostrip DC, a highly accurate heat indicator designed for use within a drying, curing, laminating or bonding process. UV cured inks are sensitive to temperature variations and require temperature monitoring. During 2015-2020 the market for UV cured inks is growing at a CAGR of 15.7%, on track to create a $3.5 billion market by 2020 according to a market research report issued by Allied Market Research.    

 Scott Szafraniec, National Sales Manager for LCR Hallcrest, comments “that our smart color change technology allows us to participate in vibrant markets that are exhibiting technology sensitive growth where process management requires multiple layers of quality control. We offer visual evidence of attained temperature during a process via a color change indicator”.

 Thermostrip DC is a highly accurate, 10mm x 5.6mm self-adhesive heat indicator   available in a temperature range of 37 to 260ºC with 5 temperature settings that when exposed to heat, will permanently change color from silver to black indicating attained temperature. It is for use in dry applications, attaches to the product in process and provides a visible record that can be affixed to production records. 

 In addition to UV ink curing applications, Thermostrip DC is perfect for monitoring web and laminating presses, temperature testing when using a fusing machine or confirming temperature at a bonding site.
