Sun Chemical Releases New Corrugated Inks
By Jon Robinson
Sun Chemical introduced new SunVisto Advantage HS inks for use on corrugated stocks, based on what the company describes as delivering both the print quality and the pH stability required for this printing segment.
“Brand owners are increasingly demanding higher graphic quality on standard corrugated linerboards,” stated Tony Renzi, VP of Product Management Packaging Inks, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “With the new SunVisto Advantage HS, converters can achieve excellent print quality for their customers while also improving their internal pressroom productivity as fewer adjustments to pH levels need to be made during long runs.”
SunVisto Advantage HS inks are designed to work with higher-line aniloxes and, according to the company, eliminate the need for special GCMI colour matches when added strength is required to hit GCMI colour targets. Sun Chemical also states its Advantage HS inks are 40 to 50 percent stronger than most conventional mid-grade GCMI inks.
Sun Chemcial continues to explain how SunVisto Advantage HS inks eliminate the need to control pH during long press runs, whereas most water-based inks will lose pH and ultimately lead to dirty print and ink build-up if not properly monitored.
The new ink set is designed to produce mid-level to high-end graphics with most paper stock, working with both single and multi-colour jobs on standard corrugated linerboards.
