Sun Chemical Introduces New SunCure Aspire UV Offset Inks for Luxury Folding Carton Applications

January 10, 2018

Brand Owners Benefit from Vibrant Inks that Offer Longer Shelf Appeal

Sun Chemical has launched a new UV offset ink that was developed to make sophisticated graphics look stunning and vibrant on high-end luxury folding cartons while at the same time providing the longer-term shelf appeal brand owners require.

The new ink system, SunCure® Aspire UV, has been formulated to exhibit immense color transparency to help create vivid color graphic effects on metallized, lenticular and holographic board stocks frequently used for pharmaceutical, perfume, liquor, cosmetic and POP applications.

In addition to providing the essential packaging charisma that brands require for high-end folding carton applications, SunCure Aspire UV inks offer excellent transfer, a wide water window, a high degree of lithographic stability, very high pigment strength to ensure mileage on press, and good lightfastness so shelf appeal remains consistent over time. This ink system has been designed to work extremely well with Sun Chemical’s SunInspire special effects coatings to make cartons truly stand out.

The new UV ink system does not use any of the “exclusion-type photoinitiators” that are sometimes considered to be a concern to many brand owners and regulatory bodies. SunCure Aspire UV inks also deliver very good adhesion properties to many non-porous substrates.

SunCure Aspire UV inks come in a complete line of high strength blending colors for all spot color needs, and meet ISO color requirements for GRACoL G7 applications.
