Sun Chemical to Unveil High Performance UV Flexo Inks at Label Summit Latin America

Published on 2017-05-03. Author : SpecialChem

SANTIAGO -- Sun Chemical will showcase its full portfolio of solutions for the narrow web, tag and label market, including two new high performance UV flexo inks, during Label Summit Latin America 2017 at the Espacio Riesco in Santiago, Chile on May 16-17.

Our customers want solutions that drive productivity, reduce waste and meet brand owner requirements of shelf standout and color consistency,” said Fernando Tavara, President, Sun Chemical Latin America.

Label Summit Latin America 2017

Drawing from our global resources and expertise, Sun Chemical can provide our customers in this region with solutions that are tailored to fit their individual needs. Whether our customers are looking to create an eye-catching wine label or a regulatory compliant shrink sleeve, we’re excited to continue meeting the needs of all our label and narrow web customers here in Latin America.

New High Performance UV Flexo Inks

Visitors of Stand #63 will learn about Sun Chemical’s two new high performance ink product ranges that will join its SolarFlex® family of narrow web, UV flexo inks:
  • SolarFlex Integra 
  • SolarFlex FSP

An extraordinary leap forward in product performance, the new ranges are the result of two years of intensive development work and a year of optimization through customer validation trials to ensure the ranges provide the robust characteristics required by customers.

SolarFlex Integra and SolarFlex FSP boast unparalleled, consistent flow and viscosity properties across the color range, superb printability and ink transfer and extremely low foaming characteristics for the most reliable press performance.

The new SolarFlex Integra inks have been designed for label, sleeve and packaging markets that have no requirement for migration-compliant food packaging and replace the SolarFlex Nova SL range. Primarily for surface printing on flexible films and labels where migration-compliant food packaging is required, the new SolarFlex FSP offers a significant upgrade on previous migration-compliant, UV flexo product ranges

Benefits of Both Inks

  • Produced from a new platform of pigment concentrates, both ink ranges benefit from increased color intensity and density
  • Maintaines the consistent rheology across the range of colors
  • As they are produced from a single range of concentrates, switching from SolarFlex Integra to SolarFlex FSP can be done without affecting the colors achieved on-press
  • Adhesion onto impervious substrates and hold-out on absorbent substrates has also both been significantly improved, broadening the range of substrates that can be used with both inks

SunCure® Flexo UV Product Range

Visitors at Sun Chemical’s booth can also learn about its SunCure® Flexo UV product range which provides UV light-curing inks and coatings for packaging printers that efficiently meet changing job requirements on a wide variety of paper and board.

Inks for Flexible Packaging and Labels

Sun Chemical will showcase a variety of inks which comply with all regulations intended for the printing of labels and flexible packaging for printers who require a low migration solution.
