Sun Chemical launches first UV flexo ink concentrate

SolarVerse and SunColorBox will be showcased at Labelexpo

Sun Chemical will use Labelexpo Europe for the global launch of its SolarVerse range of highly pigmented, low viscosity, multipurpose UV flexo base concentrates. They are designed for standard UV flexo dispensers, but offering cost savings and wider flexibility, says the company.

Converters will be able to produce finished ink profiles by blending the new base concentrate with a specific, optimized technology varnish. SolarVerse range is formulated with materials suitable for migration-compliant applications when mixed with the appropriate varnish.  


Sun Chemical will also introduce a new ink for food compliant UV flexo products within the SolarVerse system, under the brand name SolarFlex Zero. It achieves low odor and migration characteristics in food compliant label and packaging applications.  


Demonstrating other developments for the UV market, Sun Chemical will also showcase its latest range of UV LED curing SolarWave flexo and SunWave offset inks. The fully EuPIA compliant SunWave Lumina offset inks are suitable for use on all sheet-fed UV LED press types, including those equipped with low energy mercury lamps.. 


The company will also run live demonstrations of its color consistency system SunColorBox, which offers accurate digital color communication and provides data connectivity across the entire packaging supply chain.
