Transform Your Folding Carton Packaging by Thinking Outside— and Inside—the Box
At Sun Chemical, we have developed a refreshing way to fold more sustainability into your folding cartons. With the most eco-friendly solutions available, we can help you create the total package—even without plastic. Our unique and innovative technology not only allows you to print inside and outside the box, it gives you an opportunity to create strong, safe, and sustainable packaging that the world needs and consumers want.
Drawing from our 200+ years of knowledge and experience in the folding carton market, we’ve developed an ink and varnish combination that prints ‘inside the box’ and replaces polyethylene barriers while still ensuring the required grease, oil or water resistance properties of the carton are maintained. Not only that, it prints with similar intensity and stability to that of a standard low migration ink, opening up a whole new world of opportunity for ‘in the box’ printing.
This technology falls in line with our approach to sustainable product development, which includes risk management and eco-efficiency improvements, as well as a proactive approach in working with suppliers, customers, and industry trade groups to promote best practices. Using our 5Rs framework (Reuse, Reduce, Renew, Recycle and Redesign) as a guide, Sun Chemical invests significantly in R&D to improve the eco-efficiency and sustainability of packaging that utilizes its inks, coatings and adhesives to support a circular economy.
By choosing to operate more sustainably, your print operation will not only play a vital role in helping to reduce waste and lower global CO2 emissions, it can also cut costs, boost business growth and significantly enhance public perception.
