Wikoff Color expands GelFlex agreement

Wikoff Color Corporation’s license to manufacture and sell GelFlex EB Flexo products has recently expanded to include North America.

Wikoff Color signed the new agreement with Technosolutions in early January and will bring this major innovation to customers in Africa, Australia, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Japan, China, India, Europe and Russia.

‘EB Flexo has the potential to be revolutionary for the packaging industry,’ said Daryl Collins, VP of regional operations and marketing with Wikoff. ‘GelFlex capitalizes on electron beam curing being a leading food packaging safe energy-cure technology, giving converter’s the utmost confidence in their product performance.’

‘Partnering with Technosolutions to manufacture and sell GelFlex is a fantastic opportunity for us to offer another cutting-edge solution to our customer base, particularly converter’s looking for a more ‘green’ option,’ said Evan Benbow, director of research and development with Wikoff. ‘Because EB inks and coatings have significantly reduced VOC’s compared to solvent products, concerns surrounding VOCs, CO2 emissions reporting, and explosion proofing your facilities are minimized.’
