Sun Chemical to Present Metal Decorating Ink Solutions during the Aerosol and Dispensing Forum 2016

Press release from the issuing company

PARSIPPANY, N.J., USA – Sun Chemical will showcase its portfolio of inks for monobloc, tube, and aerosol cans during the Aerosol and Dispensing Forum (ADF) 2016 at the Altman Building and the Metropolitan Pavilion in New York City from September 13-14, 2016. 

During the event, Sun Chemical will display its SunAltec and SunTrio product families and demonstrate its expertise, knowledge and capabilities in metal decoration through its specialized ink solutions, including special effects, brand protection, brand color management, and print standardization.

Sun Chemical’s SunAltec series of inks for metal decoration on aluminum collapsible tubes and monobloc aerosol cans offer outstanding performance, superior quality, high productivity, and strong chemical resistance properties.

The MB Plus Series, part of the SunAltec product family, will be demonstrated at booth #B12 during ADF 2016. The versatile series has been specifically designed for the application on monobloc aerosols and uses an alkyd-based ink system which has been modified for optimum performance on new generation production lines utilizing today’s basecoat technology.

The SunTrio range for three-piece cans for sheetfed printing has excellent press performance and good adhesion between layers and to the substrate. SunTrio, both in UV and conventional, is suitable for most types of aerosol cans and closures.

Spot colors are easy to handle for both product families. Any shade can be produced directly onsite with the help of SunMatch™, Sun Chemical’s web based color matching tool. This gives printers the highest possible flexibility and allows a very quick reaction to any specific customer color request. Herbert Naef, a manager of metal decoration inks at Sun Chemical, will be speaking during the show about “color management concepts for the metal deco industry” on Tuesday, September 13th from 2:15 to 4:00 p.m.

Sun Chemical offers a complete range of solutions for metal decoration to help make packaging appealing as well as functional. Sun Chemical’s special effects portfolio, which includes tactile effects, color change inks, interactive solutions and sensory packaging, ensures metal aerosol packaging has maximum visual impact on the shelf. Its broad range of brand protection solutions also helps to protect brands against counterfeiting and making products much more difficult to copy.
