We are at the forefront of UV technology in Australia
Monocure Pty Ltd was established in 1979. Initially Monocure produced inks based on a unique UV curable water based resin system. This Ink production led to custom formulated products for the graphic arts industry such as label & sheet fed coatings.
Our research team brings new developments to your door
We are at the forefront of UV technology in Australia; our team of five research chemists and versatile production facilities enable us to:
- Produce batch sizes to match your needs
- Provide time-efficient delivery of all products
- Offer competitive pricing and customised products
- Deliver batch-to-batch consistency for superior performance
Competitive pricing and customised products
We are basic in resin manufacture. That means that pricing is competitive and resin selection is versatile. We pride ourselves on producing many unique products and in some cases have confidentiality agreements with customers so the product created is solely for their use.
Continued research and new product development
More recently we have resurrected our ink technology and are undertaking research on products for the timber and plaster board industries. We also offer products for vinyl and rubber flooring, providing a non-slip matt or satin finish.
The Environment - an active approach
We take pride in our attitude towards the environment. The use of UV inks and varnishes eliminates dangerous solvents and hydrocarbons associated with other products. There is also no need for expensive drying tunnels or after burners.
All aqueous coatings can be dried at press speeds using infrared systems or hot air tunnels. Monomers used in our UV products are deemed safe for use by the Society of British Printing Ink Manufacturers and are deemed VOC free. All additives are NICNAS approved. Our products are either waterbased or 100% resin. All our products are bio-degradable or recylclable and dissolve with caustic in paper reclamation systems. They contain no solvents, are non-flammable and can be airfreighted.
The company manufactures many of its own base resins thus ensuring control over the raw materials employed.
