Eduardo Alegria, Sun Chemical’s global sales director, Metal Deco Inks, will deliver a presentation titled “Present and Future of UV Inks for Aerosols Printing” on Sept. 5 at 2:45 p.m. In his presentation, Alegria will review regulatory trends and how the latest developments will affect UV printing in the future.
Visitors to Sun Chemical’s booth will learn about the SunAltec series, a high-performance range of inks for metal decorating on monobloc aerosol cans. The inks offer outstanding performance, superior quality, high productivity and strong chemical resistance properties, the company reports.
Part of the SunAltec product family on display, the MB Plus Series is a versatile ink series that has been specifically designed for the application on monobloc aerosols. The ink series uses an alkyd-based ink system which has been modified for optimum performance on new generation product lines utilizing today’s basecoat technology.
The SunTrio range for three-piece cans for sheetfed printing has excellent press performance and good adhesion between layers and to the substrate. SunTrio, both in UV and conventional, is suitable for most types of aerosol cans and closures.
Spot colors are easy to handle for both the SunAltec and SunTrio product families. Any shade can be produced directly onsite with the help of SunMatch, Sun Chemical’s web-based color matching tool. This gives printers the highest possible flexibility and allows a very quick reaction to any specific customer color request.
Due to Sun Chemical’s partnership with Document Security Solutions (DSS) to cross market and sell one another’s high-level anti-counterfeiting products, booth visitors will also learn how AuthentiGuard can help brand owners, supply chain personnel and consumers to validate product authenticity using a smartphone.
