Chicago, IL -- Sun Chemical will feature its award-winning Liberty™ sheetfed inks at Graph Expo 2006, to be held Oct. 15-18 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. The environmentally friendly Liberty inks, which are designed to produce outstanding print while reducing waste and dramatically shortening printers' production time, were recently named recipients of the 2006 PIA/GATF InterTech Technology Award.

"Since Liberty was introduced nearly a year ago, it is gaining a legion of converts extolling its values," said Mark J. Levin, president, Sun Chemical North American Commercial Group. "Liberty inks represent the most significant new sheetfed ink technology in years, and they establish a benchmark for superior print quality and on-press performance."

The prestigious InterTech Technology Awards are announced annually by the Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical Foundation. Recipients are chosen based on innovative technology likely to have a significant impact on the printing industry.

Both this year and in 2005, Liberty inks also were used to print the September covers of Graphic Arts Monthly, an industry magazine that employs cutting-edge technology on its covers to demonstrate best practices in printing. Liberty utilizes proprietary chemistry to create inks that offer superb press stability and ultra-fast drying, which together have been shown to yield substantial savings for printers, primarily through dramatic waste reduction.

"While many InterTech recipients were named for software or mechanical achievements, Liberty demonstrates that high-tech advancements in chemical innovation still are possible, and they can create outstanding benefits for printers," Levin said.
