Sun Chemical launches new narrow web ink solutions at Labelexpo Europe 2011

Sun Chemical, the world’s leading manufacturer of printing inks and pigments, launched a number of new narrow web ink solutions on its stand (5E 80) at Labelexpo Europe 2011. These innovative new offerings further expand Sun Chemical’s existing narrow web portfolio and allow customers to transform their business through increased productivity, differentiation and quality.

SolarFlex Lightning White is a brand new ultra high opacity UV flexo white for maximum hiding power and it works equally well with high volume channelled and standard aniloxes. Smooth printing, wide-ranging adhesion and excellent printing receptivity combine for this optimum first-down white.

SolarFlex Nova SL is a low odour ink system based solely on NestlĂ©’s “Positive-list” of photoinitiators and features excellent UV flexo performance properties which allows quick make-ready and efficient printing.

Sun Chemical’s SunCure Starluxe is a UV Offset product range designed to provide the highest print quality to labels and packaging. The series has been proven to offer reliable and robust press performance on a range of papers, plastics and metallised substrates at the highest print quality.

The SolarScreen Colours range has been upgraded for higher speed rotary screen printing without loss of definition for increased productivity. A range of resistant colours, with an associated Pantone® approved formulation guide combine with Sun Chemical’s SolarScreen® silicone-free and combination opaque whites, ideal for printing with other Solaris System products.

Speaking on the launch of the new products, Jonathan Sexton, Sales Director for Narrow Web Europe at Sun Chemical, commented: “It is important that we continue to innovate and provide our customers with narrow web products that add value to their business.  We believe the products being launched this week demonstrate our commitment as leaders in the marketplace and provide our customers with narrow web solutions that will help them create standout and increase productivity.”
