Sun Chemical to showcase expertise across screen, industrial and inkjet at FESPA 2015

18 May 2015

This week, 18-22 May 2015, Sun Chemical is exhibiting at FESPA 2015 in Cologne, Germany, illustrating its commitment and capabilities in inks for screen, industrial and inkjet printing.

Under the strapline ‘Mission Control’, Sun Chemical will exhibit on Stands C1 & C5 in Hall 8, showcasing new products and innovations for screen, industrial and digital wide format printing. Whatever a printer’s mission at FESPA 2015, Sun Chemical can provide a single source for products and solutions to meet a variety of application needs.

Mission: Screen
At FESPA 2015, Sun Chemical’s screen graphics division will showcase three new products in its SunPromo range of solvent and UV curing screen graphic inks. The new inks provide enhanced definition and exceed the needs of screen printers producing graphic display applications.
. VioGraph VGF Series, a versatile range of UV curing screen printing inks specifically formulated to meet the needs of point of purchase advertising material producers.
. VioFlash VFC Series are UV curing inks, ideal for high speed in-line printing on a variety of plastic substrates, papers and boards.
. VioFlex VFX is a series of UV curing screen inks ideal for high speed printing onto semi rigid and self-adhesive PVC substrates.

Mission: Inkjet
Digital printing is still developing rapidly and Sun Chemical is continuously making developments to its inkjet range to stay ahead of market demand. At FESPA 2015, Sun Chemical will introduce three new products to its Streamline range of high-quality alternative solvent-based inks:
. Streamline Ultima HPQ LO, an upgrade of the existing Ultima HPQ product, now benefitting from Sun Chemical’s innovative low odour chemistry.
. Streamline SGX eco solvent inks have been designed specifically to work with the high performance thin film piezo print heads for the new Epson SureColor 70600 printer, also with Sun Chemical’s low odour chemistry.
. Streamline TBJ demonstrates Sun Chemical’s commitment to the superwide format solvent print market. The product is formulated for the HP Turbojet, offering printers significantly reduced energy consumption through improved drying performance.

Mission: Textile
Soft Signage is a digital textile success story, offering many wide format printers a profitable and growing revenue stream. Acknowledging this market demand, at FESPA 2015, Sun Chemical will present Streamline TX, a range of aqueous CMYK dye sublimation inks, offering physical and colour properties equivalent to original inks.

Streamline TX inks have excellent "show through" properties which are particularly sought after for double sided banner applications such as flag printing, where the image is viewed from either side. The inks deliver excellent, strong colours and dense blacks, both crucial for stand-out soft signage applications.

Mission: Industrial
Reflecting the developments and growth in industrial applications, at FESPA 2015 Sun Chemical will launch its latest industrial ink innovation, SunPoly Monocure Universal Container UCI, a full range of UV-curing screen inks for ultra high-speed printing onto moulded plastic bottles, containers and tubes.

The inks are specifically suited to fast, multi-colour, inter station curing machines, exhibiting excellent definition at the highest print speeds. The range comprises high opacity whites, dense blacks and a full range of high gloss colours.

Mission Control
Robin McMillan, Product Manager, Industrial and Graphics Europe, Sun Chemical comments: "Like so many printers we work for, Sun Chemical has its foundations in screen and offset but we’ve also gone on to develop deep expertise in digital inkjet, meaning that we’re perfectly placed to guide printers as they push their businesses forward.

"With customers in all areas of speciality print we have the insights across the universe of print and can apply that combined expertise to find the right solutions for any printer, regardless of their blend of processes. So whatever a printer’s individual mission, at Sun Chemical we can understand their vision and provide the products, innovations, technology and service to enable them to achieve their goals. We’re delighted to showcase new innovations across screen, industrial and inkjet wide format print at FESPA 2015."
