Some UV units are designed to cure UV varnishes or inks under partially inerted conditions. These units may not be sufficient to properly run these silicones, although it may still be possible to produce suitable PSA labels and/or tapes by adjusting selected adhesive components. For quality adhesive laminates, a properly coated release liner cured with less than 50 ppm oxygen remains key.
