INX International to showcase proven inks at Graph Expo
Schaumburg, IL – June 24, 2015 – INX International Ink Co. will have all the bases covered this year at Graph Expo. INX (booth #3617) will feature a wide selection of inks for commercial, package, and digital printing and Low Migration solutions at the show, being held Sept. 13-16 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
EcoPure™ HPJ Soy inks for commercial printing, EcoTech™ LM inks for package printing, Low Migration solutions, Aqueous and Energy Curable Coatings and TRIANGLE® Alternative Inks will command attention in the booth. All have a successful track record for driving performance and value while offering environmentally friendly benefits.
With little or no leeway when brand identity is at stake, EcoPure™ HPJ Soy is the choice many have turned to when the printed piece is critical to attracting potential buyers’ interest and action. A premium quality quickset ink that outperforms on all levels, it is formulated with high percentages of soy and other vegetable oils and contains a cobalt-free drier package.
EcoPure HPJ Soy also qualifies for the American Soy Seal and is GRACoL G7 certified. It offers 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, high trap percentages and more benefits.
EcoTech™ LM Process Colors is the perfect answer for 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% 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. INXKote is composed of water-soluble resins and styrenated acrylic polymers. It eliminates the need for conventional press varnish and solvent-based topcoats and is environmentally safe. ProCure offers high performance sustainability and can be used over nearly all sheetfed and flexo inks.
TRIANGLE® Alternative inks for digital printing can match nearly every OEM printer and printer head type. A great money saving solution, various inks will be on display that can be run in tandem with HP, Epson, Mimaki, Roland, Mutoh and Vutek printers.
