Pulse Roll Label Products to Unveil High Strength UV Flexo Inks at Labelexpo

Published on 2015-08-06. Author : SpecialChem

Narrow web ink and varnish manufacturer, Pulse Roll Label Products (stand 4B60) will launch an exciting new range of vibrant, high strength UV flexo inks at Labelexpo Europe 2015.

Responding to increasing customer demands, the company’s latest product offering to be unveiled in Brussels, pushes the boundaries of what can be achieved in terms of ink vibrancy and color strength. The new high-strength range allows for lower film weights of ink and addresses the growing market trend for HD (high-definition) plates and higher line count anilox used on modern day presses.

Initially available in four color process, plans are also underway to extend this to a seven color process set. This will offer narrow web label printers a solution whereby a much wider range of shades can be matched using just these seven colors, providing increased flexibility through an extended gamut and allowing brighter and more vibrant colors to be achieved.

A range of high strength, mono-pigmented mixing bases will complement the process set, making it easier for converters to achieve brighter and higher color strength with substantially less ink usage. Using mono-pigmented inks means lower inventory, due to a rationalized blend of standardized pigments and reduced ink usage of up to 30% due to the higher-strength properties.

Successful customer print trials to date show that much crisper, cleaner and brighter colors can be achieved compared to inks that use more than one pigment. Suitable for narrow web flexo printing on a wide range of substrates including paper, PE and PP, the new range offers outstanding color strength, intensity and improved dot reproduction, superior rheology properties and excellent adhesion.

Pulse Roll Label Products has been working in partnership with major print groups and the manufacturers of color measurement solutions, as well as anilox roll and HD plate manufacturers, to offer its customers a complete color management solution. Supported by these industry experts, the new range means that label producers can achieve far greater ink efficiencies plus achieve outstanding print results that, in terms of color strength, are a serious contender to challenge other UV flexo inks currently available in the marketplace.
