Published on 2006-01-16. Author : SpecialChem

NORTHLAKE, IL -- Sun Chemical, the world's foremost ink maker, has announced a licensing agreement for it to make and sell MetalFX® inks, a technology that can be used to print up to 104 million metallic colors.

Sun Chemical will have five locations strategically located throughout the United States to support MetalFX sales. They are St Charles, IL; Santa Fe Springs, CA; Atlanta, GA; Philadelphia, PA and Grand Prairie, TX.

MetalFX has opened up a whole new color spectrum for printers and designers. Thousands of striking metallic colors can be created by overprinting process color inks over MetalFX Base silver ink. The color specification is all controlled through the MetalFX software and swatch books. The process inks used for MetalFX have defined values so Sun Chemical can produce inks compatible with the metallic color specification system.

"The MetalFX technique expands the gamut of special-effects possibilities for printers," said Chris Morrissey, Sun Chemical corporate vice president of marketing. "By offering this service, Sun Chemical demonstrates the value-added products and services that make it the first choice of printers around the world."
