UV Flexo White Inks Bring Breakthrough Technology for Narrow Web Printers

Sun Chemical booth visitors will learn about SolarFlex® Neutron White

  • SolarFlex® Neutron White is a high opacity UV flexo first-down white ink that has been redeveloped from first principles using state of the art technology and manufacturing processes to develop a breakthrough in technical performance
  • Testing has shown the SolarFlex Neutron White outperforms leading competitive products in terms of opacity, printability and gloss
  • Printers using the SolarFlex Neutron White can use a finer anilox to achieve the same opacity as with a conventional UV flexo white, requiring less ink to achieve the same hiding power
  • Finer aniloxes also allow the printer to print sharper text and lines while still retaining maximum contrast over the darkest of labeled goods
  • SolarFlex Neutron White can print pinhole-free and allows for printing on aluminum substrates in a single layer
  • The inks are compatible with SolarFlex® Integra and other UV and EB inks in the Solaris® System of products on a wide range of narrow web and mid-web presses
  • SolarFlex® Slalom Sleeve White UV flexo white inks will also be on display at the show
  • SolarFlex Slalom Sleeve White has been designed for good opacity and printability for maximum covering power
  • Its good adhesion to a wide range of filmic materials makes the ink highly scratch and rub resistant for efficient sleeving and print protection

Sun Chemical will also highlight its Rayoflex® Electron First Down White ink

Rayoflex® Electron First Down White ink is a UV flexo low migration first-down opaque white ink that offers the flexible film and narrow web printer the capability to print compliant food packaging, pharmaceutical packaging or packaging for other sensitive applications where a risk of migration has been identified.

The ink features excellent adhesion to a wide range of substrates, high opacity and printability, excellent receptivity to low migration UV flexo color, as well as good gloss, scratch and scuff resistance.

Meeting the Individual Needs of the Narrow Web, Tag and Label Market

Sun Chemical will have other inks on display from the UV Flexo Technology Platform during the show which will cater to the individual needs and requirements of narrow web, tag and label printers. The SolarFlex® Integra inks, for example, have been designed for label, sleeve and packaging markets that have no requirement for migration-compliant food packaging.
