Sun Chemical to Launch UV Flexo Ink Concentrates at Labelexpo 2019

Published on 2019-08-13. Author : SpecialChem

TAGS:  UV/EB Technology      Inks    

Sun Chemical to Launch UV Flexo Ink Concentrates Sun Chemical will use Labelexpo as a platform for the global launch of SolarVerse, a range of highly pigmented, low viscosity, multipurpose UV flexo base concentrates. It is designed to be easily dispensed through a standard UV flexo dispenser and offers customers significant benefits in terms of cost savings and flexibility.

Features and Benefits of SolarVerse Range

By simply blending a SolarVerse base concentrate with a specific, optimized technology varnish, different, finished ink profiles can be produced, ready for use on press in whatever color specified.

As SolarVerse bases are formulated with materials suitable for migration-compliant applications when mixed with the appropriate technology varnish, the single base range is also ideal for UV flexo food packaging and label applications. With the same SolarVerse base concentrates being used for each ink profile, color consistency is also maintained regardless of the end print use.

Sun Chemical will also be introducing a new concept for food compliant UV flexo products within the SolarVerse system, under the brand name SolarFlex Zero. This technology has been shown to achieve exceptionally low odour and migration characteristics in food compliant label and packaging applications. Sun Chemical will be making this available for market validation in the coming months.

Range of UV LED Curing Offset Inks

Demonstrating other developments for the UV market, Sun Chemical will also showcase its range of UV LED curing SolarWave flexo and SunWave offset inks. The fully EuPIA compliant SunWave Lumina offset inks are suitable for use on all sheetfed UV LED press types, including those equipped with low energy mercury lamps, and deliver leading lithographic performance that helps printers to achieve increased productivity.

SolarWave FSP UV LED flexo food compliant inks are available as finished inks or as part of the SolarVerse system through a dedicated UV LED technology varnish. The inks demonstrate all the capabilities of conventional UV flexo inks when cured under suitable UV LED curing systems.

Solutions from Digital Inkjet Brand

Also present on the stand will be solutions from SunJet, Sun Chemical’s digital inkjet brand. Under the SunJet brand, Sun Chemical will showcase its UV, E-beam and Aqueous technology through its Etijet range, as well as its ‘Amplio’ digital effects range, which comprises primers, effects varnishes, gloss varnishes, foiling varnishes, lamination varnishes and adhesives for digital effects.

Demonstrating its understanding and expertise of food safety regulations, SunJet will also present its range of migration-compliant inkjet solutions for printing onto the non-contact side of primary and secondary food packaging applications.
