Kerley Ink manufactures UViDec™, a complete set of Ultraviolet energy-curable sheetfed litho inks formulated to work on tin plated steel, sized steel sheet, aluminum sheet, plastic sheet, and polymer-resin surfaces. Aside from being the first all-new series of UV-cure inks formulated, manufactured and sold in the USA for years, UViDec is also priced to help you take advantage of the new alternative supply source that the introduction of UViDec press-ready Inks present.
UViDec™ inks are available in these mixing base colors to make sheetfed offset spot color blends:
• Neutral Mixing Black
• Process Blue
• Phthalo Green
• Rubine Red/Process Red
• Rhodamine Red
• Process Yellow

What really makes UViDec and its sister product for UV-cured web offset, Radion™, unique is the "built from the ground-up" approach to how all of Kerley Ink's radiation-curable products are manufactured. UViDec is made almost completely from ingredients also manufactured by Kerley. As with the rest of the range of products that Kerley Ink offers, UViDec is formulated to use a minimum of proprietary materials from outside suppliers. Thus, Kerley manufactures for itself all of the color base dispersions used in UViDec and Radion from dry colors in radiation-curable vehicles that Kerley also makes in-house. See our selection of RadionBase MDEC products elsewhere in this website for their specifications. Additionally, a successful UV-cured ink also depends greatly on the quality of the photoinitiator package chosen, so Kerley makes is own ExoCure line of photoinitiator packages, also.
