  • SolarFlex CRCL for shrink and non-shrink applications: The SolarFlex CRCL range of inks have been developed for UV flexo applications and allow the removal of ink from PET film without a primer, increasing the recyclability of products that use shrink labels . These inks also feature strong dot reproduction and high press speeds to ensure quality, in addition to meeting increasing industry demands for durability.
  • SolarFlex High Adhesion Technology: The SolarFlex series of UV flexo inks are designed to provide the high adhesion needed without the use of a primer for the most difficult substrates.
  • SunCure Mono-web Coatings: SunCure UV Flexo coatings eliminate the lamination process, saving adhesive, film and processing, while reducing carbon footprint.
  • SunVisto AquaGreen Renewable Ink Series: SunVisto AquaGreen water-based inks are formulated with the highest level of bio-renewable resin content the industry has to offer, delivering a high-quality finish that brand owners should appreciate.
  • MX12 Ink Dispenser Technology: The MX12 Dispenser, an offering of the Sun Chemical Dispenser program, allows printers to mix only what they need while maintaining consistent color matching with no color variations, gaining repeatability and 0.001 lbs. (0.0005 kg) accuracy. This ink delivery technology helps reduce waste, cost and excess ink inventory.
  • SolarWave UV-LED Inks: Converters with energy curing systems can reduce energy consumption by switching from standard mercury vapor lamps to UV LED alternatives. Sun Chemical has developed high quality UV-LED curable inks known as SolarWave, which enable environmental improvements in industrial processes including reduced power consumption and minimized energy costs, lamp life longer and no ozone generation. The inks retain all the performance attributes of conventional UV flexo inks on press and in application. These inks will cure under conventional UV and LED lamps, allowing for a more seamless transition from traditional UV to LED.
