With the long history of solvent and water-based printing, determining when the printed ink is dry comes almost naturally. In these classic printing inks, typically the polymer that is used as the ink binder is already formed and just requires the solvent or water to evaporate off . When the print is no longer wet and cannot be rubbed off , the ink is dried. Working with UV-curable inks moves the printer into a whole diff erent world.
