Sun Chemical Displays Solutions for Commercial, Publication Printers at ExpoPrint 2014


Enhances pressroom efficiency, meets sustainability requirements and produces quality prints at high speeds

During ExpoPrint Latin America 2014, which will be held July 16-22, 2014 at the Transamerica Expo Center in São Paulo, Brazil, Sun Chemical will introduce commercial and publication printers to a wide range of solutions that enhance pressroom efficiency, meet sustainability requirements and produce outstanding quality prints at high speeds.
Commercial and publication printers who visit Hall C, Booth 14C will learn about a variety of sheetfed inks that are used extensively in Europe and/or North America with success, as well as publication solutions which print consistently across a growing range of improved paper stocks and grades.
The Sun Chemical family of SunLit sheetfed inks for the commercial market that will be on display at ExpoPrint are all formulated with a high proportion of renewable raw materials which contribute to sustainability initiatives, and each ink is fully aligned with the measures of print standardization (ISO 12647:2).
One of the newest offerings at the stand include SunLit Crystal universal sheetfed offset process inks, an “all-in-one” ink solution. SunLit Crystal inks enable printers to produce highly appealing prints while maintaining effectiveness in the printing process.

Sun Chemical’s SunLit Triumph Max commercial sheetfed inks are formulated for high speed printing and high abrasion resistance on a wide variety of stocks, thereby increasing productivity and print fidelity. Formulated to produce an abrasion-resistant film which works well on uncoated and matte type stocks, the inks dry hard enough to not scuff in finishing operations, which improve bindery handling on the paper substrates that are used.
The fast setting properties of SunLit Diamond inks significantly reduce cylinder build up, cleaning frequency and sheet guide marking, saving customers money by avoiding waste print, increasing uptime and eliminating the challenges of the perfecting printing process at high speeds.
SunLit Diamond can be used on all offset presses of different sizes and formats, and provides excellent printing results on the different papers and boards used in commercial printing, giving customers the option of using one ink series for all of its presses. A switch to one ink series would reduce ink inventory, avoid cleaning the presses between runs, and increase press time, saving valuable warehouse space and money.
Designed for use on all types of sheetfed presses and perfecting machines, SunLit Exact PSO sheetfed offset inks offer top quality 4-color process printing. Suitable for publication, commercial and package printing, SunLit Exact PSO offers strong lithographic stability at all press speeds, excellent dot reproduction, and good stack capability.
Sun Chemical also offers a broad portfolio of high value coldset and heatset inks for the Latin American publication printing market. Addressing Latin American heatset printers’ needs for ink to print consistently across a growing range of improved paper stocks and grades, Sun Chemical will showcase its SunMag ink series for catalog, magazines and ad inserts.
