UV Flexo Silver offers stability
UK Ink manufacturer Pulse Roll Label Products has launched UV Flexo silver ink that is said to provide optimised pigment stability, long term gloss retention properties and brilliance while reducing anilox volume.
Gary Seward, managing director says: "Today's printers are under presure to supply high stand-alone graphic impact and metallic ink is one way of achieving this. With SFLEX we have addressed brightness and over-printibilty issues, as well as the tendancy for pigment from silver inks to settle out in the tray. This is an issue that demands constnt sttention from the press operator"
The ink has been tried by Boston, UK based Superior Labels, whose production director, Vince Reid, says: "We have printed labels for one of the Tesco Finest range of products with the new silver from Pulse. It was brighter, better curing and demonstrated much improved over-printibilty with the UV flexo black"
Gary Seward adds; "SFLEX has been the subject of extensive trials that have proved its pigment stability, gloss retention and reduction in anilox volume, making it an advancement to current technology. It has also passed the climate test demonsrating exceptional long term stability at higher temperatures. This will enable our customers to both safely store and print with this product in locations with elevated temperatures."
