PARSIPPANY, N.J. – Sun Chemical’s Bob O’Boyle will discuss the emerging technologies impacting barrier coatings during a seminar at 2pm on September 10th held at PRINT 13.
During the seminar, which is included as part of the normal entrance fee, O’Boyle will elaborate on how the design of barrier coatings allows for lightweight packaging and improved laminated flexibility, while still being cost-effective, recyclable, biodegradable and press-ready with few changes to current equipment.
Sun Chemical’s Barrier Coatings are designed to enable lightweighting of packaging by removing the metal foil and one layer of adhesive from packaging, as well as offering improved laminate flexibility. A smooth, homogenous, pinhole-free layer, SunBar is easily overprinted with inks and can be laminated to a variety of secondary films.
O’Boyle joined Sun Chemical in 1981 where he is now the product manager for Sun Chemical’s coatings portfolio.
Held in Chicago on September 8-12, PRINT 13 is recognized as the most expansive exhibition in the Americas of digital, offset, flexo and hybrid technologies, products, and services for the commercial, transactional, converting and package printing, publishing, mailing, in-plant, photo imaging, and marketing industries.
