Sun Chemical to present ink solutions at Cannex

Sun Chemical is planning on showcasing its portfolio of inks for metal decoration at Cannex 2016 at the Colorado convention centre, USA from 27-29 April 2016.

It will demonstrate its expertise, knowledge and capabilities in metal decoration through its specialised ink solutions including special effects, brand protection, brand colour management, laser marking and print standardisation. Three of its product families will be on show, including the SunDuo, SunTrio and SunAltec.

The range of SunDuo inks for two piece cans optimise metal can print production and are available for the printing of steel and aluminium cans, both nonvarnish and overvarnish (OVO). The new OV inks offer improved performance during the printing process, with better printability and compatibility with over varnish. This results in enhanced transparency and ink mileage.

The SunTrio range for three piece cans for sheetfed printing has excellent press performance and good adhesion between layers and to the substrate. Available both in UV and conventional, it is suitable for all types of metal cans and closures from crowns to drums, aluminium pilfer proof caps, aerosols, food cans and fish drawn cans. The SunAltec series offer great quality, high productivity and fastness properties.

The series has been specifically designed for the application of monobloc aerosols and is versatile and uses an alkyd based ink system, which has been modified for optimum performance, for new generation production lines as well as today’s basecoat technology. Any shade can be produced directly onsite with the help of the formula guide, this gives the printer the highest possible flexibility and allows a very quick reaction to any specific customer colour request.
