Sun Chemical to Announce New Technologies at LabelExpo

Published on 2007-07-23. Author : SpecialChem

Slough, UK -- Sun Chemical plans to announce a significant development in digital label production as well as an innovation for the UV flexo market at LabelExpo 2007 in Brussels from September 26-29. The show will also serve as a launch pad for a number of other Sun Chemical offerings for the narrow-web and labels industry, including innovations in brand protection and printable electronics.

Sun Chemical established itself as a growing force in the narrow-web market with Solaris®, a global product line of inks and coatings for narrow-web printers. At LabelExpo 2007 new offerings will build off that successful platform, which will help printers and brand owners improve their productivity and efficiency.

The Solaris product line includes high performance inks and customised solutions that make labels stand out by being specially formulated to meet the needs of customers. These inks can be paired with coatings that add effects such as gloss, matt and chemical resistance. The full lineup includes products for virtually all narrow web-printing processes, including UV flexo; water-based flexo; screen whites and colours; letterpress and lithography.

Jonathan Sexton, Sun Chemical Europe's business manager, narrow-web labels, said: "We are pleased with the response to our Solaris range since its launch at the last LabelExpo Europe. The range has brought to the narrow-web market important benefits that include faster cure speeds, low press room and cured print odour, lower humidity sensitivity and improved adhesion and resistance."

Felipe Mellado, corporate vice-president, Sun Chemical Europe, said: "We will be revealing a number of unique and innovative products specifically designed for the narrow-web market at LabelExpo 2007. These exciting new technologies open up new opportunities for printers. They also keep Sun Chemical at the forefront of the industry and represent our long-term commitment to the sector."
