Siegwerk Druckfarben –Launch of UV flexo ink series for pressure-sensitive labels
USA • The ink manufacturer will introduce its new Sicura Flex Orbis ink series, a new generation of UV flexo inks especially developed for pressure sensitive paper, film labels, unsupported films and shrink sleeve applications at Labelexpo Americas 2018 (stand 5923). According to Siegwerk, the new series offers high colour strength and low viscosity for an improved print performance at higher speeds. The monochromatic base ink series provides a wider expanded colour gamut.
Demonstrations of FastMatch, a web-based colour management software program for accurate ink formulations, will take place. FastMatch is available for water-based and UV inks, and can utilize the user’s preferred substrate. According to the company it allows printers to reduce set up times and waste with every colour in the Pantone book. Colours can be standardized and stored in a database that can be utilized across several locations. FastMatch is only available in the USA and Canada.
Siegwerk will also commercially launch a new water-based lamination system called HyperLam and a new system of metallics called Aqua Sparkle X. Furthermore, the latest product enhancements to popular brands such as Ultra Pro, Film III and Poly Screen III systems will be highlighted.
