Metal Decorating on Cans, Bottles and Tubes

Sun Chemical’s SunAltec ink series offers a high-quality and high-performance range of inks for metal decorating on monobloc aerosol cans, drink bottles and aluminum collapsible. The portfolio of inks provides outstanding performance, superior quality, high productivity and strong chemical resistance properties.

Designed for metal packaging, SunAltec offers thermal, catalytic and UV drying inks.

Part of the SunAltec product family includes the MB Plus Series, a versatile ink series that has been specifically designed for the application on monobloc aerosols. The ink series uses an alkyd-based ink system which has been modified for optimum performance on new generation product lines utilizing today’s basecoat technology.

Focused on sustainability, we’re constantly working to promote sustainable solutions that contribute to a circular economy. Our Guide to Sustainable Metal Packaging will show how we’re aligning our sustainability goals in metal packaging with those of the United Nations in its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

Another solution that further enhances metal decorating is SunDigiProof, one of the tools in the SunColorBox toolkit, a solution that accelerates the color approval process by simulating the metal decorating final product on a clear transfer film that can be laminated to a basecoated aerosol or tube, and removes the need to produce a costly manual wet proof.
