Will Bioglitter™ would dissolve in UV ink? The light fastness of the product: if printed with, will still keep its original shine/shimmer etc?
Deco Bioglitter™ is being used successfully in UV systems in the UK. All feedback we have is that it works well. To best of our knowledge, Bioglitter™ won’t dissolve in UV ink and works well in UV systems.
Light fastness of the pigments used is 6-7 on the yellow, 7-8 on the other pigments (Blue wool scale). So would expect light fastness to be good. However, we have not tested the actual glitter.
Does Bioglitter™ dissolve in water?
Genuine Bioglitter™ does not dissolve in water, it needs environmental bacteria and other environmental microorganisms to biodegrade.
How does Bioglitter™ biodegrade?
Once it enters the natural environment, such as a farmer’s field, wastewater or our rivers and lakes, microbes will consume the biodegradable content turning it into carbon dioxide, water and biomass.
No microbes = No biodegradation
In a microbe and bacteria free environment Bioglitter™ is completely durable.
