Sun Chemical Showcasing Metal Decoration Inks

Sun Chemical showcasing metal decoration inks.

Sun Chemical has announced that it will showcase its full portfolio of inks for monobloc and three-piece aerosol cans, as well as its expertise, knowledge and capabilities in metal decoration through its specialised ink solutions. This includes special effects, brand protection, brand colour management, and print standardisation.

The company will showcase its innovations at the Aerosol and Dispensing Forum (ADF) 2018 in September. Additionally, Sun Chemical’s global sales director, Metal Deco Inks, Eduardo Alegria, will deliver a presentation at the show entitled ‘Present and Future of UV Inks for Aerosols Printing.’ In his presentation, Alegria will review regulatory trends and how the latest developments will affect UV printing in the future.

Visitors will learn about Sun Chemical’s SunAltec series, a range of inks for metal decorating on monobloc aerosol cans. The inks offer outstanding performance, superior quality, high productivity and strong chemical resistance properties.

Part of the SunAltec product family on display, the MB Plus Series is a versatile ink series that has been designed for the application on monobloc aerosols. The ink series uses an alkyd-based ink system that has been modified for optimum performance on new generation product lines utilising 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 colours 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 colour matching tool. This gives printers the highest possible flexibility and allows a very quick reaction to any specific customer colour request.

Thanks 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.
