MM LIVE- Adobe Workshop

Sun Chemical has added new solutions to its broad portfolio of screen and industrial inks, super-wide format and wide format inkjet inks, as well as textile inkjet inks.

A new addition to the Streamline range is APY, a new ink for high speed aqueous poster printing. Streamline APY offers faster drying compared to competitive aqueous inks, improved print finish, higher colour vibrancy and lower energy consumption for drying systems. Print samples will be available on the stand.

Sun Chemical will also stock a full range of inkjet inks for wide format printers, formulated to give maximum reliability and exceptional print quality. The inks are also Greenguard/Greenguard Gold certified for low indoor emissions.

A number of products from Sun Chemical’s SunTex textile range include dye sublimation inks for direct or transfer print and pigment based inks. Three new additions to SunTex will be launched: DTY, PDY and PDR, all of which will be available globally, with print samples available on the stand.

DTY is a dye sublimation inkjet ink for transfer and direct-to-textile printing. Formulated for Kyocera printheads to give excellent jetting performance and open time, the ink offers colour vibrancy and will be Oeko-Tex Eco Passport certified.

PDY and PDR are both pigmented inkjet inks produced for textile printing. PDY has been formulated for use with Kyocera printheads and PDR for use with Ricoh printheads. The inks reduce the need for pre and post-treatment, increasing durability and achieving stronger, more vibrant colours. Both inks feature a large colour gamut, and will be Oeko-Tex Eco Passport certified.

The new brand name ‘Amplio’ for its digital effects range comprises primers, effects varnishes, gloss varnishes, foiling varnishes, lamination varnishes and adhesives for digital effects, all of which will be available globally.

Also under the SunJet umbrella, Sun Chemical is Separel. DIC’s proprietary Separel technology uses hollow fibre membrane technology for the degassing of inkjet ink, to deliver consistently smooth printing, reduced substrate and ink waste, lessened printer cleaning costs and shortened printer cleaning times.

Sun Chemical’s portfolio also includes products suitable for screen and industrial use; a broad range of products include SunHytek, SunCarte, SunPoly, SunTronic, SunPromo, SunCoat and Nanosilver.

Sun Chemical’s commitment to providing tailored solutions for its customers and markets is further demonstrated by SunEvo Primus and SunEvo Protect. The SunEvo range of digital coatings aims to facilitate the evolution of digitally printed packaging and deliver improved workflows and technically advanced solutions that comply with industry standards.

SunMotion is a compelling alternative to backlit signage and LCD displays. It provides brand owners with motion activated full-colour, moving illuminated imagery. Invisible inks are printed onto plastic substrates and multiple layers come alive when exposed to UV LED light.

These can all be seen at the upcoming FESPA 2019 from 14-17 May at Messe Munich, Germany. Upcoming FESPA events include FESPA Africa, the region’s largest, focused exhibition for wide format digital printing, screen printing, garment decoration and textile printing, which is co-located with Sign Africa and Africa Print – the region’s leading events for the signage and printing industry – as well as Africa LED and Modern Marketing. The event is taking place from 11-13 September 2019 at Gallagher Convention Centre, Johannesburg.
