Sun Chemical introduces its new range of digital coatings, SunEvo™
Brussels, Belgium, 25 September 2017: At Labelexpo Europe 2017, Sun Chemical is presenting its latest digitally printed packaging solution for the label, narrow web and packaging markets, on its stand 5E45 from 25 – 28 September 2017.
Designed to provide the finest and most advanced coating solutions for digital package printing, SunEvo Digital Coatings allow for a collaborative initiative in the supply chain, providing a link between the substrate, press and ink and providing converters with technically advanced solutions that are tailored to their requirements and that fit within industry standards.
Suitable for labelling, flexible packaging, folding carton or corrugated printing, SunEvo Digital Coatings are structured around various technological platforms that work with numerous digital printing techniques including electro-photography (EP), liquid electro-photography (LEP), water-based inkjet systems and energy curable (EC) inkjet systems.
By enhancing surface treatments, SunEvo Digital Coatings allow converters to print on a wide range of substrates, including non-porous filmic and paper-based substrates and complementing digital inks to deliver functionality, protection, productivity and finishing.
SunEvo Digital Coatings offer the most comprehensive and technically advanced range of primers, adhesives and overprint varnishes which have been designed to meet the packaging application standards required by brand owners and converters:
• SunEvo Primus – A range of primers promoting adhesion to substrates, supporting the pigment on the substrate, while enhancing printability and the resolution of the digital inks on some of the most commonly used packaging substrates.
• SunEvo Protect – over print varnishes (OPVs) that safeguard digital printing inks used in packaging applications, while enhancing the customer experience through the quality of the finish.
Marcos Valdezate, Global Business Development Manager, SunEvo Digital Coatings, comments: “Digital printing for packaging offers a number of benefits for converters including short runs and quick turnaround times and provides an effective tool for brands to communicate with customers in a personalised manner. It can also potentially open up new windows of possibilities for both traditional retailers and e-commerce channels by transforming packaging into more interactive and meaningful media.
“Our SunEvo range of digital coatings provide printers and converters with a series of specialist coatings that will enable packaging applications to be printed digitally. As a global inks manufacturer, Sun Chemical brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the packaging and digital printing industry, ensuring optimal performance of our new range.”
