Van Son Introduces SonaCure UV-Curable Inks
ISLANDIA, NY—August 2, 2007—Van Son Holland Ink Corporation, a leading global printing ink manufacturer known around the world for producing high quality, high performance inks for every offset press, is introducing its new SonaCure UV-Curable ink line at Graph Expo 2007, scheduled for Sept. 9–12 at Chicago’s McCormick Place. SonaCure UV-Curable inks are available in three series: paper, hybrid, and foil/plastic. SonaCure is recommended for adding a very high quality look to any UV-cured printing job, including booklet and publication covers, marketing materials, self-adhesive labels, credit cards and all types of consumer packaging. SonaCure takes seconds to dry, delivers a faster turnaround, and produces lower emissions than conventional inks.
“More and more printers are offering UV-cured printing as a value-added process for customers who want to convey a high quality image through their printed communications, especially packaging and related items. Van Son’s goal is to support printers in their efforts to expand their business opportunities and improve profit margins,” said John Sammis, vice president of sales and marketing for Van Son. “Additionally, SonaCure offers the added benefit of being an environmentally friendly, non-VOC ink. Printers can be assured that SonaCure, like all Van Son inks, is formulated for ease of use, maximum cost-savings, and high performance.”
SonaCure is available in formulations for use on coated or uncoated paper, board stock, foil and plastic substrates, and on lacquered or corona-treated surfaces. In every application, SonaCure offers high gloss and excellent rub resistance. In keeping with Van Son’s commitment to serving offset printers of every size and in every market, SonaCure will work with ease on any size press equipped with a UV-curing unit. It has excellent adhesion qualities, stays fresh overnight on-press, and has high-intensity pigmentation.
Process colors, Opaque White, and the full range of PANTONE standard and mixed colors are offered. SonaCure is available in vacuum-sealed 2.5 kg. containers.
