One-for-All shrink inks from INX solve frequent shrink-label printing problems..

Schaumburg, IL -- There are good reasons why you see INX ShrinkPac inks on so many eye-catching shrink-sleeve packages in stores nowadays. Several good reasons, in fact.

With either rotogravure or flexographic equipment, a single INX ink system - ShrinkPac (gravure) or Flexo ShrinkPac - does the job on multiple substrates, including OPS, PVC and PETG.

"These commercially proven ink systems are specially formulated to perform across-the-board on shrink sleeve substrates," says Luigi P. DeFlaviis Jr., Director of National Accounts for INX' Liquid Ink Division. "While this simplifies and expedites job-to-job turnaround, our ink formulations also solve problems encountered daily by many shrink-label printers."

ShrinkPac inks resolve PVC adhesion, OPS distortion and related issues.

"Adhesion, for example - always an issue with substrates like these, can be especially difficult when printing on PVC," DeFlaviis points out. "But not with ShrinkPac and Flexo ShrinkPac; they provide superior adhesion along with excellent color development.

"And printers running OPS will be glad to know there's virtually no solvent attack with our shrink ink formulations - which eliminates distortion issues and the need for constant adjustments in order to compensate.

"In short, for high-speed printability with sharp color reproduction and superior shrink performance, ShrinkPac and Flexo ShrinkPac are an ideal one-for-all answer for either gravure or flexo shrink-label operations."

INX International Ink Co. is the third largest producer of ink in North America with over 30 plants in the U.S. and Canada, and a global supplier as part of Sakata Inx worldwide operations.
