INX International to Spotlight a Range of Inks and Solutions at GRAPH EXPO 15
SCHAUMBURG, Ill.—September 11, 2015—INX International Ink will offer a wide range of tried-and-true ink solutions with successful track records for commercial, packaging—including Low Migration—and digital printing at booth 3617 during GRAPH EXPO 15, from Sept. 13-16 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
Among the inks that will be featured include EcoPure HPJ Soy inks for commercial printing and EcoTech LM inks for package printing. In addition, Low Migration solutions, Aqueous and Energy Curable Coatings and TRIANGLE Alternative Inks also deliver high performance and tremendous value while providing options that are planet friendly.
“The GRAPH EXPO show is a great time of the year for many reasons,” announced Rick Clendenning, president and CEO of INX International Ink. “It’s here in our hometown of Chicago, and provides us with a great opportunity to see our customers and friends who like to visit a world class city. We’ve enjoyed many successful shows here in the past, but I think this one will top all the others with all of the outstanding products we have in the booth. We have a industry-leading solution for every print possibility.”
That includes the digital side where TRIANGLE Alternative inks can match nearly any OEM printer and print head type. A great money saving solution, TRIANGLE Alternatives offer tremendous variety with solutions for mild, true, eco and bio solvent ink, as well as aqueous and UV curable inks. All are designed to run with HP, Epson, Mimaki, Roland, Mutoh and Vutek printers, and come with unsurpassed Ink Train and Outdoor Durability warranties. When these inks are combined with the support trio of an outstanding global dealer network, full technical training and local technical expertise, it redefines value-added services.
The value doesn’t stop there. When brand identity is on the line, many marketers and printers turn to EcoPure HPJ Soy when a printed piece is critical to attracting potential buyers’ interest and action. This premium quality quickset ink has a history of outperforming on all levels.
Formulated with high percentages of soy and other vegetable oils and containing a cobalt-free drier package, EcoPure HPJ Soy qualifies for the American Soy Seal and is GRACoL G7 certified. It offers many benefits, including superior ink transfer for faster start ups and minimum density variation, fast set times to turn jobs, a wide water balance window for easy operation and high trap percentages. It also produces sharp dot reproduction, excellent performance with FM screening, and no misting on high-speed presses.
EcoTech LM Process Colors is ideal for settling various packaging challenges where Low Migration issues involving substrates, brand color specs and converting demands leave no room for compromise. These high performance process inks are specifically formulated for the sheetfed folding carton segment for indirect food contact containers where migration is a concern, part of an overall portfolio of low migration inks and coatings INX has developed to support various processes and applications in the packaging chain.
In compliance with the Nestle Guidance Note on Packaging Inks and the European (EuPIA) Guideline for printing inks on the non-food contact surface of food packaging materials and articles, EcoTech LM is free of mineral oil and cobalt. Carefully formulated from vegetable oils and other bio-renewable resources, the system averages 65 percent by weigh from these user-friendly raw materials while meeting ISO 2846-1 standards and are GRACoL G7 certified.
INX International is the only ink company to manufacture its own aqueous and energy curable coatings, and new technology is the springboard to new markets. At GRAPH EXPO, INX will display just right properties with performance features that help packages and publications withstand the rigors of shipping, handling and in-store displays, and protect from sun, moisture, dirt and other conditions.
INXKote Aqueous Coatings and ProCure UV Coatings are two prime examples that will be on display. INXKote is environmentally safe, composed of water-soluble resins and styrenated acrylic polymers that eliminate the need for conventional press varnish and solvent-based topcoats.
ProCure offers high performance sustainability and can be used over nearly all sheetfed and flexo inks. They provide excellent flow and leveling for uniform coating, with a high gloss finish, low odor, slip properties, rub resistance, and resistance to water and organic solvents.
