UV Flexo Inks

ink-mixingFlexographic printing is one of the earliest forms of printing. Considerable advancement in the quality of flexographic printing presses, printing plates and printing inks have lead to innovative product development. Our home-grown inks have significantly contributed to improve print quality whilst reducing make-ready times and operational costs.

The development of photopolymer printing plates along with plate processing improvements have enabled flexo printers to compete on quality with other techniques. During this period flexographic inks moved away from mainly solvent-based chemistry to include an additional broad range of water-based and UV-curable inks, further enhancing print performance and packaging quality.

Our knowledge of flexography and supporting ink systems spans over decades and we have witnessed it develop in recent years to become the fastest-growing printing process. Flexo printing offers a range of advantages when printing on a variety of different materials such as film, foil, plastic, paper and board, using a wide range of inks, and printing at high speed. Our customers have experienced a tremendous growth and technological advancement in various applications of flexographic printing. The main applications are within the packaging industry such as labels, flexible packaging, boards and folding cartons.
