Pulse Launches New Line of Metallic Inks and Digitech

March 2010. Bristol, UK based Pulse Roll Label Products Ltd. has announced the launch of a range of high performance metallic inks. These include UV Flexo Gold and Silver, UV Screen Silver and UV Flexo VMP (Very Bright Foil Replacement) Silver. The inks will debut at IPEX on the Pulse Printing Products stand - C620

The new range has been developed to meet the need to produce packaging with bold, stand out product appeal cost effectively and are manufactured in house with the focus on press stability and brightness.

Managing Director, Gary Seaward commented, "Traditionally, packaging converters have to use a 100% metallised substrate to print and convert an end product at high cost. Most companies producing cartons, labels and tags only want to produce a spot or localised metallic area to provide stand-out shelf appeal for the product. Using metallic inks for spot printing greatly reduces substrate costs and gives high flexibility. The new range offers optimum shelf life and can also be colour tinted to give extra high-lights."

The company will also launch Digitech, a new range of gloss and matt UV curable varnishes for use in digital printing. These are optimised for high chemical resistance, adhesion and low shrinkage. The range also includes UV Digicon, a primer that permits in-line UV priming prior to digital printing, or overprinting of UV inks with high chemical and product resistance.
