Creates ‘rounded portfolio’ for the offset label printing market
Sun Chemical has launched SunCure Aspire UV, a new UV offset ink developed to ‘make sophisticated graphics look stunning and vibrant’ on high-end luxury folding cartons.
SunCure Aspire UV 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. The ink system has been designed to work with Sun Chemical’s SunInspire special effects coatings, and have ‘very good’ adhesion properties to many non-porous substrates.
The new ink system has been formulated to exhibit 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.
SunCure Aspire UV inks are also claimed to 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.
