EIC Unveils New Products, Productivity Tools at CMM


Environmental Inks and Coatings (EIC), Morganton, NC, unveiled a variety of new products and services during CMM in Chicago, IL.
The Pro Plus System is the most flexible color delivery system available today, according to EIC. The Pro Plus System is the synergy of ultrahigh strength water-based inks, a spectrally generated color database and its “Anilox Aware” formulation software. Pro Plus can replace all general-purpose line and process paper and  board inks for aniloxes from 360 lpi to up to 1200 lpi. The Anilox Aware software fingerprints ink to individual aniloxes in the printer’s inventory.
EIC’s Ultra Flex III UV flexo inks are the strongest low viscosity inks available, according to the company. Ultra Flex III inks perform to the highest standards enabling demanding flexo printers to challenge the printing quality of offset and gravure with the efficiency of flexography. Like the Pro Plus System, Ultra Flex III will print line and process colors on a wide range of aniloxes and utilizes the “Anilox Aware” formulation software to fingerprint the ink to individual aniloxes.
After correlating the ink delivery of your pressroom aniloxes to EIC’s exclusive software, EIC’s “Anilox Aware” formulation software can deliver ink “on color,” reducing profit-draining make-ready times.
