Siegwerk plans to debut its Sicura Flex ORBIS ink series, describing it as a new generation of UV flexo inks especially developed for pressure sensitive paper, film labels as well as unsupported films and shrink sleeve applications, at Labelexpo Americas 2018 in Chicago, Ill.

Sicura Flex ORBIS, according to the company, offers high colour strength and low viscosity for an improved print performance at higher speeds. It is a monochromatic base ink series which Siegwerk says will provide a wider expanded colour gamut. As well, the company intends to commercially launch the HyperLam water-based lamination system and a new system of metallics called Aqua Sparkle X.

Furthermore, Siegwerk will be highlighting the latest product enhancements to its Ultra Pro, Film III and Poly Screen III brands. These inks, Siegwerk explains, have been enhanced to require very low maintenance with improved printability for quality and consistent printing for better productivity and reduced waste.

The company has noted a gradual volume switch from conventional UV to migration optimized UV inks, such as Sicura Nutriflex 39-10, over the last years and expects LED UV curing to continue being one of the growth drivers throughout the printing industry. Further expansion of LED UV ink applications, Siegwerk says, will enable printers to use the technology for the full range of products. With its Sicura Nutriflex LEDTec product range, Siegwerk says it plans to continue offering optimized LED UV flexo series for food and pharma packaging, addressing the growing demand for low migration products in the area of food packaging applications.
