SolarFlex® Range of UV Inks bring Breakthrough Technology for Narrow Web Printers

Visitors of Sun Chemical’s booth will learn about SolarFlex® Nova SL range of UV flexo inks. Intended for the printing of labels, tags, sleeves, tickets and other applications typically found in the narrow web market, SolarFlex Nova SL features flow optimization for press performance, low odor for sensitive applications, fast curing for higher press speeds, and a color strength that has been increased for finer anilox choices. Formulated without any volatile organic compounds and compliant with the strictest global regulations, the SolarFlex Nova SL range can increase color gamut and/or lower ink consumption.

Nilpeter will use SolarFlex Nova SL inks with its presses at booth #31 during Label Latinoamerica 2015.

Sun Chemical will also highlight SolarFlex Neutron White, a high opacity UV flexo first-down white ink that has been redeveloped from first principles using state of the art technology and manufacturing processes to develop a breakthrough in technical performance. Testing has shown the SolarFlex Neutron White outperforms leading competitive products in terms of opacity, printability and gloss.

The result is that printers using the SolarFlex Neutron White can use a finer anilox to achieve the same opacity as with a conventional UV flexo white, requiring less ink to achieve the same hiding power. Finer aniloxes also allow the printer to print sharper text and lines while still retaining maximum contrast over the darkest of labeled goods. 

SolarFlex Neutron White is able to print pinhole-free and allows for printing on aluminum substrates in a single layer. The inks are compatible with SolarFlex Nova SL and other UV and EB inks in the Solaris System of products on a wide range of narrow web and mid-web presses.

Another product highlighted at Sun Chemical’s booth is SunCure® Starluxe, a highly versatile range of UV curable lithographic inks that are designed for the outer surface printing of carton board and foil boards, selected plastics, and non-absorbent substrates. SunCure Starluxe is also designed for the printing of labels, sleeves, tags and tickets. Usable for in-line or off-line coating, foil stamping and lamination, SunCure Starluxe inks offer excellent dot gain and trapping properties for high print quality with the ability for reversed out print and have an extensive range of color, including resistant colors.
