The increased usage of UV-inkjet for printing porous fiber based products has created a need to study the interactions between paper coating, ink and process. In this paper we have studied, how coating porosity affects print quality formation and ink curing degree of UV-curable inkjet inks. Results show, that paper requirements for UV-inkjet differ clearly from those, which are usually connected to good inkjet paper. Paper properties have quite a remarkable effect on print gloss and density formation, although the use of pinning lamps reduces this dependency. Ink curing degree depends also on the properties of the paper and interactions between ink and paper.
