Sun Chemical Launches Migration-Compliant Metallic Inks
October 2, 2017 By PrintAction Staff
Sun Chemical has introduced a set of migration-compliant metallic inks for sheetfed offset printing. The new set, part of Sun Chemical’s SunPak FSP range of bio-based, lithographic inks for board and paper, comprises four colours – silver, rich gold, rich pale gold and pale gold. The SunPak set of migration-compliant, metallic inks is now available in Europe, North America and South America.
The inks are ideally suited for food packaging, explains the company, as they have been fully certified as migration-compliant. Developed to ensure that there is no batch-to-batch variation and offering a storage life of 12 months, the new inks will be dispatched to customers as a ready mixed, one-pack system.
The new inks have been validated in tests by existing customers, Sun Chemical explains their feedback indicates that the new range of metallic inks delivers good storage stability, is more robust on press compared with other migration-compliant inks and has drawn level with standard oil-based metallic inks in terms of metallic brilliance.
“In line with Sun Chemical’s commitment to continuous innovation to help our customers operate more productive, profitable and sustainable businesses, we’re now introducing our latest set of metallic inks,” said Detlef Trautewein, Technical Service Manager, Sheetfed Europe, Sun Chemical. “Offering an unsurpassed level of shine, together with a 12-month storage life, batch consistency and a migration-compliant certification in a one-pack system, we’re confident that these new additions to our SunPak range will enable our customers to produce stand-out packaging for their customers.”
