Many of those attending the upcoming 16th LatinCan Conference in Brazil will likely be getting their first exposure to INX International Ink Co.’s highly successful Evolve Advanced Digital Solutions. Supporting this popular concept will be a preview of the new TP UV Fusion, the first UV hybrid low migration inks available in the market for three-piece metal decorating. The Conference is being held February 16-18 at the Sheraton Resort & Hotel in Rio de Janeiro.
Evolve was introduced in 2010 to help traditional printers and converters evolve to digital printing with industrial inkjet systems. Digital technologies such as the CP100 UV cylindrical printer, the new MD1000 UV flatbed printer, and the NW100 narrow web press for short-run digital prototype packaging and production, help expand portfolios by providing new capabilities to develop niche markets. Evolve's wide array of high quality products include customized inks and coating solutions for every type of digital printer and print-head technology, ranging from solvent, UV-curable and UV LED-curable, to aqueous and thermal and oil piezo inks.
The TP UV Fusion hybrid inks are specifically formulated for indirect food packaging applications that call for low migration and low odor inks. Conforming to Nestle requirements for packaging inks, these unique inks are environmentally friendly without VOC solvents, are ITX and Benzophenone free and qualify for the Soy Ink Seal. With exceptional adhesion to a wide variety of base coated metal substrates, UV Fusion has excellent press stability and color balance that is comparable to the best conventional litho inks on the market.
