Streamline Solvent-Based Inkjet Inks
Designed specifically for use in wide format printers which use high-quality solvent-based inks, Streamline inkjet inks offer the same level of quality, performance and color integrity as original equipment manufacturer (OEM) quality printing, but at a much lower cost.
Streamline inkjet inks provide an optimal solution for large format display advertising, including: billboards, vinyl banners, and vehicle/building wraps. Additionally, the suite of Streamline products come in easy-to-use cartridges filled with high quality inks that meet the stringent demands of the latest wide format printing equipment and the durability needed for outdoor weather conditions.
Carefully matched to the original products for both color shade and strength, as well as physical properties, Streamline inks allow print providers to use their existing printer settings when converting from the OEM inks.
SunVetro Organic Screen Inks
UV inks from Sun Chemical allow brand owners to decorate their glass and ceramic packaging with bright, vibrant effects that can liven up the shelf presence. Organic inks, coatings and sprays significantly expand the color gamut, allowing brand owners to not only produce standout designs directly decorated on the glass, but to do so using real brand colors that meet the current industry regulations regarding heavy metals and VOCs.
UV ink systems can significantly increase mileage, reduce energy costs by using UV lamps versus firing ovens, use less floor space, and increase production speeds. The end result is a lower cost per print.
Sun Chemical’s SunVetro VTGL series of UV screen inks are a two-component system designed for printing onto glass, coated metals, and ceramics, as well as mirroring applications. These inks offer excellent adhesion to glass substrates, high gloss, excellent abrasion and chemical resistance, 100% solids with no heavy metals or VOCs, and additives to provide numerous special effects.
Formulated to cure with both mercury vapor and LED UV sources, the SunVetro VTGL series has a color matching system available with smart scale and ink dispensing systems.
