ECKART America Introduces New METALSTAR® MFX® Non-Leafing Silver Ink for Offset Printing

Published on 2005-08-01. Author : SpecialChem

CLEVELAND, OHIO -- ECKART America L.P. has developed a unique new Non-Leafing Silver ink specially formulated for the patented MetalFX® printing process. ECKART is now introducing its 'METALSTAR® MFX® 06 9000 nl Standard Base Offset Silver' a new ink that offers unique technology and excellent print properties.

Currently, the MetalFX® process uses either leafing-based standard silver or premium silver base inks. ECKART's new Non-Leafing Silver 06 9000 exhibits unique optical and trapping properties while maintaining the strengths and advantages of the existing standard and premium MFX® silver inks. Additionally, the new ECKART METALSTAR® MFX® Non- Leafing Silver retains its brilliance level even when overcoated, which was not previously possible with other MFX® base silver inks.

ECKART METALSTAR® MFX® Non-Leafing Silver is a conventional drying sheetfed ink for lithographic presses. It is formulated as a first-down ink and overprinted with CMYK process colors in order to create an almost infinite range of metallic colors in one pass.

According to Bruce Schimmel, ECKART America Director of Sales - Graphic Arts, "This Non-Leafing Silver has been especially developed with MetalFX® in mind. The ink will give MetalFX®-certified printers a greater freedom and the opportunity to achieve outstanding results at less cost. The silver pigment works with the overprinted CMYK and an aqueous varnish to bring the metallic to life with extra vibrancy. This makes it perfect for packaging and other offset printing applications."

ECKART is a leading worldwide manufacturer of special effect pigments, pastes, dispersions and printing inks for the graphic arts, plastics, coatings, and cosmetics markets.
