PARSIPPANY, N.J., U.S.A. – Sun Chemical will showcase a variety of eco-friendly coldset ink solutions during the Latin American Newspapers Technical Association’s Annual Meeting held at the Dann Carlton Hotel in Medellín, Colombia from October 25-27.
Visitors of Sun Chemical’s tabletop can learn more about the complete range of products and services that Sun Chemical offers to Latin America customers, including Spectra Max®, AD-LITHO®, and Spectra®High-Strength coldset inks. These eco-friendly inks do not contain heavy metals and are formulated with vegetable and/or soy oils, and offer superior print quality at the same time.
Spectra Max® Color coldset web offset inks are the latest addition to US Ink’s Spectra® line of inks which allow newspaper printers seeking maximum color to use less ink while increasing print quality further with better print contrast, traps, less rub, and reduced page-to-page setoff.
As a set, Spectra Max Color inks are on average 61 percent stronger than other similar process color inks, and offer significant reduction of moisture on the running web, reducing newsprint waste, improving the web strength, less dot gain, excellent mileage, and strong color fidelity.
AD-LITHO® process news colors and related black inks are especially suited for warmer climates and tough press room environments. Formulated with soy oil and for open fount press configurations, AD-LITHO offers: lower VOCs, low rub, excellent trap and laydown, reduced water uptake, and balanced, bold colors.
Spectra® High-Strength inks are a premium set of offset process color inks which offer several advantages in the high strength color arena. Spectra High-Strength inks allow for printing with a thinner ink film which lead to better control of water settings on the press, resulting in: a drier web, less rub, reduced page-to-page setoff and dot gain, and increased mileage. Formulated with soy oil, Spectra High-Strength Color inks provide a low-VOC option for coldset printers.
