Sun Chemical Showcases New Technologies at SGIA


SGIA 2008 visitors were introduced to innovative new products from Sun Chemical showing significant developments in display, industrial and electronic materials technologies.
“Sun Chemical’s major investments in research and development are paying off for our customers in the screen, digital, narrow web label, brand protection and electronics materials industries,” said Michael Kellen, the director of specialty inks at Sun Chemical. “For each of these unique applications, we have innovative products that improve both productivity and durability, and at the same time reduce consumable costs.”
Sun Chemical’s newest additions to its display graphics offerings includes the GEN 7 UV multi-purpose ink system designed for use on a wide range of plastic substrates and the COMETAL UV ink system designed for printing onto coated metals. COMETAL can also be used in the hi-tech graphics market.
GEN 7 inks are made with high performance pigments, which offer excellent outdoor durability, and are an environmentally-friendly solution that creates no VOCs and is NVP-free.
Sun Chemical will showcase its Platinum White technology, a UV flexo white ink that improves the productivity of converters when printing narrow web labels by delivering increased line speeds, faster changeovers, improved color separations and reduced costs.
At SGIA, Sun Chemical will show visitors its SunTronic product line, a series of screen inks used for printed circuit boards, membrane switches, fascia panels, industrial labels, medical sensors and others in the printed electronics marketplace.
