Sun Chemical Announces UV Offset Ink

PARSIPPANY, NJ | Sun Chemical has launched SunCure Aspire UV, a UV offset ink that company says was developed to make sophisticated graphics look stunning and vibrant on high-end luxury folding cartons while providing the longer-term shelf appeal brand owners require.

The new ink system has been formulated to exhibit immense color transparency to help create vivid color graphic effects on metallized, lenticular, and holographic board stocks frequently used for pharmaceutical, perfume, liquor, cosmetic, and POP applications.

In addition to providing the essential packaging charisma that brands require for high-end folding carton applications, SunCure Aspire UV inks reportedly offer excellent transfer, a wide water window, a high degree of lithographic stability, very high pigment strength to ensure mileage on press, and good lightfastness so shelf appeal remains consistent over time. This ink system has been designed to work extremely well with the company’s SunInspire special effects coatings to make cartons stand out.

The ink system does not use any of the “exclusion-type photoinitiators” that company says are sometimes considered to be a concern to many brand owners and regulatory bodies. SunCure Aspire UV inks are also said to deliver very good adhesion properties to many non-porous substrates. inks come in a complete line of high-strength blending colors for all spot color needs and meet ISO color requirements for GRACoL G7 applications.
