Sun Chemical has been named a recipient of the 2006 PIA/GATF InterTech Technology Award for its Liberty sheetfed inks, an environmentally-friendly ink technology designed to produce outstanding print while reducing waste and dramatically shortening printers’ production time.
The prestigious InterTech Technology Awards are announced annually by the Printing Industries of America/Graphic Arts Technical Foundation. Recipients are chosen based on innovative technology likely to have a significant impact on the printing industry.
“In today’s market, printers are looking for a technological edge,” said Mark J. Levin, president, Sun Chemical North American Commercial Group. “Liberty ink is a new benchmark that delivers superior print quality and on-press performance.”
Liberty utilizes proprietary chemistry to create inks that offer superb press stability and ultra-fast drying, which together can yield substantial savings for printers.
