“Corrugated packaging is no longer just about protecting shipments, handling and storage; it is now required to stand out on the shelf,” said Anthony Renzi, VP, Product Management of Packaging Inks, North American Inks, Sun Chemical. “At Sun Chemical, we’re committed to delivering the highest quality solutions that help graphics pop on corrugated packaging, while also improving pressroom efficiency and minimizing excess costs. We’re also excited to demonstrate Sun Chemical’s technical expertise and commitment to help converters meet sustainability goals.”
At booth #1019, representatives of Sun Chemical will teach visitors about Sun Chemical’s SunVisto Advantage line of inks which offer superior performance in the most challenging printing and converting environments with the least amount of on-press management.
SunVisto Advantage inks meet the growing demands of corrugated packaging throughout the value chain for both consumer interaction and ease in use while printing. The stability and reliability in the performance of these inks allow press operators and assistants—at a time when skilled personnel is dwindling—to focus on running the job rather than managing inks to maintain performance, resulting in improved productivity and quality.
To meet the wide range of converter needs, the SunVisto Advantage product line has been expanded to feature: fast drying for high holdout liners, three strengths of market standard GCMI colors, and a range of products for special matches covering general-purpose, high rub, high coverage and stock hide. If there is a print run that requires running slow or on a skip feed, or is facing challenges like tracking, smearing or issues with traps, Sun Chemical has a solution or service that ultimately will provide greater efficiency and higher quality.
For converters looking for sustainable solutions, Sun Chemical representatives will showcase a platform of eco-friendly and sustainable products that utilize renewable and recyclable materials, have environmentally friendly profiles (low VOCs), and contribute to converter sustainability goals through their impact on lowering waste and optimizing productivity.
To reach those goals, Sun Chemical uses rigorous development processes and analytical tools to evaluate and improve the eco-efficiency of both its manufacturing procedures and products.
Booth visitors will learn how a range of support services, programs and tools can help Sun Chemical respond quickly to the troubleshooting needs of converters in a quick and nimble way that serves as an extension to their business.
Sun Chemical’s support services can help with a wide breadth of converter needs, including: a new color match, quick turn-around and delivery of products, a technical service visit to help solve a challenge, consultation on the best way to set up a job, or help in training and developing the converter’s team.
As the global leader in inks, coatings and consumables, Sun Chemical brings over 200 years of innovation and leadership in the market. Sun Chemical meets the needs of its customers as a local and responsive supplier with facilities strategically located across North America and has the largest sales and technical service staff in the industry that stand ready to help at a moment’s notice.
Consumable technology will also be on display at the show. Sun Chemical’s SunVisto Anilox Renew is a highly concentrated cleaner designed to provide a deep cleaning foam that brings heavily soiled plates and anilox rollers back to their “like new” condition. Anilox Renew minimizes or eliminates the need for sending anilox rollers out for cleaning. SunVisto Power Scrub uses the same technology built into Anilox Renew at a more economical price and can be used on any surface.
