Sun Chemical’s Approach to Sustainability
Visitors of booth #201 will learn how Sun Chemical’s unique approach to sustainability—the “Five Rs” (Reuse, Reduce, Renew, Recycle, Redesign)—leads to the development of inks, coatings and adhesives that help achieve bio-renewable, recyclable and compostable packaging.
With an ambitious goal to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 with its parent company, DIC Corporation, Sun Chemical uses the “Five Rs” as a guide in product development. All solutions in Sun Chemical’s SunEco portfolio are designed to help achieve at least one of the “Five Rs.” Here’s some examples:
Reuse: (Recovering energy from waste streams and diverting waste from landfills)
Reduce: (Minimizing waste, energy use, and emissions)
Renew: (Accessing new sources of renewable energy)
Recycle: (Capturing and recovering solvents and other raw materials)
Redesign: (Reimagining technologies for conventional operations to improve efficiency and performance)
Troubleshooting Pressroom Challenges
As pressroom technology continues to advance, adjustments to the ink almost always are needed. If the press shifts to faster print speeds, then a new ink may have to be considered to avoid challenges on the press. Worn out equipment, such as rollers or plates, can also play a role in printing defects. To help alleviate these challenges, Sun Chemical offers an online Ink Troubleshooting Guide to quickly identify solutions to potential challenges that may occur on press, including adhesion, blocking, smearing or mottled print.
The Ink Troubleshooting Guide can help identify the root cause of the problem and provide possible solutions, but if more is needed, booth visitors will learn about Sun Chemical’s five-step technical service approach—(1) identify performance requirements; (2) conduct a site audit; (3) product selection; (4) run press trials; and (5) finalize product qualification.
Moe Rahmeh, Technical Customer Service Functional Excellence Director at Sun Chemical, will present a session on troubleshooting on April 18th at 3:40 p.m. at the INFOFLEX Theater.
