Sun Chemical introduces a new range of UV varnishes for enhancing the label resistance of pressure-sensitive labels digitally printed on HP Indigo for personal care, household, chemical, beverage and pharma applications.

The new varnishes were specifically formulated to provide adhesion to HP Indigo ElectroInk and has been designed to provide high levels of mechanical durability on HP Indigo printed labels.

The new set of varnishes do not require the addition of any press-side additives. The range can be printed using standard UV coating equipment.

The solution has been tested across some of the most popular label substrates including PP White, PP Clear and Metalized Substrates.

Available as part of the SunEvo Protect LEP HD range of protective varnishes for HP Indigo, the range highlights another example of the high level of co-operation between HP Indigo and Sun Chemical.

Two new products are available as part of the set: EV-LU028 Gloss and EV-LU029 Matte. The range is available to be ordered immediately. Commercial production has started in Europe with other regions following shortly.

“We have conducted field trials with the HP Indigo community across many countries for a few months and the response has been phenomenal,” said Marcos Valdezate, Sun Chemical global business development Manager for SunEvo Coatings for Digital. “Customers have challenged the durability of these varnishes and have seen how long-lasting they are. This is another great example of how coating innovation can expand the range of applications for digital printers and actively expand their offering.”
