INX International Ink Co. (booths 409/411) will showcase water, solvent, UV-based flexo inks and more at the FFTA Info*Flex 2015 Forum, taking place May 4-5 at the Omni Nashville. The low cost, high performance inks include multiple substrate options for Tag & Label, Pouch & Sleeve, Corrugated, Envelope, Carton and Bag.
INX Infinity and Synergy III flexographic lamination inks are formulated for high press speeds of 2000 feet per minute. Both solvent ink systems perform exceptionally well and print cleanly for general-purpose snack food packaging. Exceptional bond strength and low solvent retention can be achieved with extrusion and adhesive lamination.
Leading the contingent of UV flexographic products are INXFlex UV ITX-Free Shrink 70 and INXFlex UV CLM II. INXFlex UV Shrink inks provide minimal swell for flexographic printing. A premium ink, it is specifically engineered for high strength and extreme shrink up to 70%. Suitable for most tag and label, pressure sensitive and in-mold label applications, they have excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates and are V-Pyrol free. These inks also can be printed with aniloxes up to 1800 line screen with 1.0-1.2 BCM.
INXFlex UV CLM II Low Migration process inks are a premium, best-in-class UV curable flexographic product with low odor upon cure. Formulated with low migrating photo initiators, they have low migration characteristics for indirect food contact and are in compliance with the Swiss Ordinance and other regulatory measures. INXFlex Low Migration also prints with less plate swell on most tags and labels, pressure sensitive, and shrink and in-mold label applications.
Formulated for the ever-growing outdoor bag market and perfect for this time of year, INX DuraINX is a solvent flexo ink system for outdoor bag applications on standard treated polyethylenes. The system is formulated with special high performance pigments and components to impart high fade, gloss, scuff/rub resistance, non-skid properties, good adhesion and print durability for outdoor exposure.
