Why does humidity need to be controlled in the printing industry?

Paper is a hygroscopic material that tends to reach a condition of equilibrium with the temperature-humidity conditions of the surrounding environment. Any swings in temperature and humidity can cause dimensional variations and loss of paper flatness . These phenomena are well-known to those who work in the printing industry as, if not appropriately controlled, they can...

Why does air relative humidity affect the quality of coatings?

The application of coatings on a surface is a process that is affected by the relative humidity of the surrounding environment. The speed and intensity of the reactions that generate the protective film are dependent on air conditions. This is even more the case when using water-based paints or powder paints , which are increasingly widespread in industrial processes due to their low VOC...
