Sun Chemical Latin America (SCLA) featured its new WideStar sheetfed inks at Graphics of the Americas in Miami Beach, FL. The Latin American group also rolled out Sun Chemical’s Solaris brand of inks and coatings for narrow web printing.
The WideStar inks were formulated and are produced in South America to meet local requirements. These offset inks feature excellent transfer and ink-water balance, with stability needed for high-speed printing, according to Jim Cunningham, vice president, Sun Chemical Latin America. He added that WideStar inks set quickly to reduce drying time and improve rub resistance, allowing printers to reduce use of anti-setoff powders. WideStar inks offer exceptional gloss and can be used on a variety of substrates and press types.
