BRISTOL, UK | UK-based ink manufacturer Pulse Roll Label Products has named Graymills, Inc., as its distributor in North America. The Chicago, IL-based company will handle sales and support for the Pulse Digitech range of UV varnishes throughout the US.
Digitech UV varnishes are aimed at users of HP Indigo digital presses and available in gloss, matt, super matt and foil block-able formulations. The range also includes a UV primer that permits in-line UV printing or overprinting to accept digital inks. The formulations are suited to a wide range of substrates including coated paper, board, coated thermal paper, treated and primed synthetics as well as aluminium foils.
“HP Indigo users know that there is an inherent incompatibility between the Indigo Electroinks and most UV curable coatings,” comments Ed Dedman, director of Emerging Technologies at Graymills. “They just don’t like each other. The new Digitech UV overprints for HP Indigo presses have been specially formulated to overcome incompatibility issues and exhibit excellent wetting, lay, and adhesion over digital inks without the need to corona treat or drive off residual imaging oil.”
Pulse Roll Label Products Ltd. has been supplying the label converting industry since 2000 and is part of the Pulse Group of companies. The company’s portfolio includes UV and water-based inks, coatings and adhesives, plus special effect inks, pressroom products, and cleaning solutions.
