UPM Raflatac is working with Kao Collins and Colordyne Technologies as a primary material supplier to bring digital inkjet labels to Labelexpo Europe 2019.
Colordyne and Kao Collins have been working with UPM Raflatac to identify a range of materials that are compatible with their new aqueous pigment inkjet technology, as well as to expand the media and application range for the UV inkjet print engine.
‘Expanding the markets and applications we can serve is important for Colordyne and Kao Collins,’ said Taylor Buckthorpe, director of sales at Colordyne Technologies. ‘One of our goals for collaborating with UPM Raflatac is to test and approve materials that deliver superior performance with our aqueous pigment and UV inkjet technologies. Identifying materials that perform well with our digital inkjet technologies allows us to better serve our customers and expand the applications they can produce.’
UPM Raflatac will be supplying a wide range of materials including Polyjet gloss white PP, Polyjet gloss white PET, Jetcolor and Jetlaser printed with aqueous pigment inkjet and Premium Gloss UVI, White BOPP, Clear BOPP and Metallized BOPP printed with UV inkjet.
‘Collaborating across the value chain with like-minded partners is one way in which we're labeling a smarter future,’ said Kirit Naik, director of global digital printing technologies at UPM Raflatac. ‘We are pleased to partner with Colordyne and Kao Collins to showcase our innovative and high-quality print on demand aqueous pigment and UV inkjet labeling solutions. Visit us at our booths to learn how we can work together to unlock your brand's potential.’
The show visitors who will visit booth 5E15 will receive a variety of label samples printed on UPM Raflatac material using Kao Collins' ink and inkjet print engines manufactured by Colordyne.
