Cost of Lamintating vs. cost of UV Coating
UV Coating costs in the range of $ 0.005 per square foot versus $0.25 for laminating.
This difference becomes significant when your volumes increase. For example if you are producing 500 square feet per day the cost becomes $2.50 for UV instead of $125 for Laminating. If your applications suit the change over, the increased capital and operating cost of a UV coater can be justified when volumes reach these higher levels.
