In this paper the types of screen printing inks available for curing by ultra‐violet light are described. A comparison is made with conventional thermally cured inks and the author asserts that the current drive towards energy conservation and reduction in atmospheric pollution has been a powerful stimulus to the development of UV cured inks. The cost effectiveness of these inks is examined by reference to the energy required, operational costs, equipment, the ink itself and reject rates.
