UV Coaters


UV/AQ coating on printed sheets offline, or near-line, has become the printers need of the century. With so much on-demand printing going on, printers need a solid reliable solution for their coating necessities, and a company to support them.

American Ultraviolet has been involved with UV since 1960. We provide superior state-of-the-art equipment that’s made in the U.S.A., and we always strive to provide our customers with unmatched technical service and support. Of course we build excellent UV coaters, but it’s the superior customer support we offer that has been the missing link to many printers who have experienced UV/AQ coaters in the past.

At American Ultraviolet, we assist through every step of the coating process. With digital printing, there are many challenges in matching the right coating with the right print to achieve good lay downs, good adhesion and high gloss levels. American Ultraviolet will help you achieve your goals. On the commercial printing side, where there are many coatings available, we know you’re looking for low cost and mileage. American Ultraviolet will help put together an ideal solution plan that fits your needs, and your budget.
