INX to showcase Sustainable Ink solutions at INFOFLEX 2024

Schaumburg, IL – April 23, 2024 – Flexographic ink technology leader INX International Ink Co. will feature a wide range of sustainable ink solutions in booth 133 at this year’s FTA Forum and INFOFLEX 2024. The premier flexographic industry event is being held May 5-8 at the Loews Kansas City Hotel and Convention Center..

“We are excited to connect with flexographic industry professionals and support this event,” said Renee Schouten, INX Vice President of Marketing. “The Forum and INFOFLEX gives us a unique opportunity to demonstrate the latest flexo ink innovations, and explain our dedication to sustainability and partner collaboration. We understand how innovation thrives when diverse perspectives come together, and at this event we can explore new technology ideas that can shape the future of our industry.”

Schouten pointed out that as the flexographic industry continues to evolve, it is important to have an ink partner dedicated to producing superior, environmentally conscious products in tandem with exceptional customer service and support.

"At INX, we provide a partnership for growth. Our R&D division develops every new product with a sustainable purpose. We know the carbon footprint of packaging materials can be reduced by using eco and environmentally friendly inks and contribute to a circular economy. Two solutions we debuted at last year’s show, DuraINX HRC natural-based inks and Ecostage GB-XA coatings, are examples that help brand owners and printers fulfill their sustainability objectives.”


DuraINX HRC natural-based inks are one of the featured solutions in booth 133 at INFOFLEX 2024.

Brand owners and food packaging providers choose INXhrc® natural-based inks for several reasons beyond being safer, more sustainable, and reducing their regulatory risk. With clean, bio-renewable and sustainable ingredients, CO2 emissions are significantly downsized without sacrificing machine, processing or end-use performance. INXhrc also uses fewer chemicals compared to traditional inks and does not contain allergens, nanomaterials, fluorochemicals, fanal pigments, heavy metals, latex or PTFE.

INXFlex Contour flexographic inks offer high performance for shrink sleeve applications and cure both UV and LED. These fast drying inks offer printability at high speeds, maximizing shrink contouring and eliminating post-shrink adhesion loss and ink flaking. The Dual Cure (DC) version can switch from UV or LED unit by unit, providing an option to cure two ways with one ink system for increased efficiencies and lower applied costs.

Genesis FS washable label inks maintain properties in accordance with the APR guidelines required for shrink sleeve applications. Exhibiting excellent bleed resistance in caustic bath solutions, the ink is separated from the substrate and removed from the label material so a complete recyclable package is possible. It can also be used for floatable roll fed OPP labels so a customer can print multiple label types with one ink system.

Innova Plus is a universal flexographic lamination ink that works with a variety of solvent and water-based, and solvent-less adhesive systems. It improves printability while offering excellent bond, color strength, heat, and adhesive smear resistance.

INX print application specialists will be available in booth 133 and attendees can arrange a meeting to discuss any of these products. Visit the website for more information on INX’s flexographic ink solutions.
