Published on 2015-02-17. Author : SpecialChem

 Ultrachem, the independent supplier of coatings and press room consumables has, after a successful trial period, now officially partnered with prominent manufacturer of water based Flexographic inks, ACTEGA. This important development will see Ultrachem stocking and distributing, with immediate effect, water based inks to the UK Flexographic market.

This new business relationship will intensify the existing cooperation between the two companies and strengthen Ultrachem’s market leading position as a supplier of quality printing inks.

Jan Brinton, Director at Ultrachem said, "In preparation for this important strategic partnership we have already successfully trialled and supplied ACTEGA water based flexo inks to a number of corrugated and label printers. Based upon the considerable success of these trials we are now in a position to make a significant stock investment in ACTEGA’s market leading portfolio of inks. Together with ACTEGA we want to give our customers the quality products they would expect from us, all backed up by an unrivalled level of service and technical support".

Ultrachem will be stocking water based inks for flexographic printing suitable for corrugated board, industrial paper packaging, flexible plastic packaging and foil based materials. Recognized brand names include ISEGA approved products COLORFLEX, COLORWELL, COLORBAG and COLORSAN.

The new range will be backed up by an in-house blending and matching service developed jointly with ACTEGA. Standard stocked line items will be available for delivery in the UK within 24 hours. Non-stock items can be delivered within 5 working days.

Oliver Steinitz, ACTEGA Area Sales Manager South Europe & UK concluded, "Ultrachem already has an excellent reputation for servicing sheet fed commercial and packaging businesses throughout the UK at a local level and I am sure that they will replicate this success by offering the same quality of service and products to flexographic print customers."


ACTEGA develops and produces specialty coatings, sealants, printing inks, and adhesives for rigid and flexible packaging and the graphic arts industry.
