Sun Chemical has been awarded an InterTech Technology Award, one of the highest honors in the printing industry, for its SunPak LMQ (low migration quality) products.
Awarded annually by the Printing Industries of America (PIA), the InterTech Award recognizes the development of unique and innovative technologies that are predicted to have a significant impact on the graphic arts and related industries.
Sun Chemical’s SunPak LMQ products help address the risk brand owners face in packaging, where compounds from materials in the packaging structure can migrate into the food product or the surrounding environment. SunPak LMQ inks exhibit very low odor, off-flavor and migration levels, and offer a comprehensive solution to brand owners and converters who are looking for ways to address migration concerns for food, pharmaceutical and tobacco applications.
The Sun Chemical solution combines chemistry, press preparation procedures, lithographic guidance and analytical support to help converters meet the most demanding requirements.
“We are thrilled that SunPak LMQ inks have been recognized with the InterTech Technology Award,” said Charles Murray, president, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “The issue of low migration and food safety will only continue to grow in importance in the United States, and Sun Chemical is committed to helping customers make that transition to ensure they comply with regulations and food safety requirements now and in the future.”
Sun Chemical will be recognized for its achievement before an audience of industry leaders during the 2012 Premier Print Awards Gala in October.
