INX to feature metal decoration inks at ExpoPrint Latin America
INX International Ink Co. has announced that it will be showcasing its range of inks and coatings at ExpoPrint Latin America, 20-24 March in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
This will be the first time INX will be exhibiting in South America. The product lines that will be displayed are geared to showcase the strengths of Creative Industria e Comercio Ltda., manufacturer of flexographic and gravure packaging inks that INX acquired in December 2016.
Rick Clendenning, president and CEO, said: “ExpoPrint is an excellent opportunity for INX to demonstrate our consistent global expansion efforts and commitment to the South American market by providing packaging solutions to our worldwide customers.”
INX will exhibit Synergy and Belle Colour solvent-based inks for flexible packaging and two-piece metal decoration inks and coatings.
Synergy is a flexographic laminating ink that works with solvent-based and solvent-less adhesive systems. Designed to run at press speeds of 2000 feet per minute, it is a high-performance product with excellent printability and heat resistance for general purpose, snack food packaging, INK says.
The company goes on to say that Belle Colour solvent-based rotogravure laminating inks are the highest performing inks on the market for adhesive and extrusion lamination. These inks are formulated for retort, boil-in-bag and a vast range of diverse packaging applications.
Belle Colour, like Synergy, is said to offer excellent heat resistance, low solvent retention, and resolves doctor blade issues that are commonly found with other inks.
