INXCure™ UVXcel OSF process inks

INXCure UVXcel OSF process inks are UV curable inks that are suitable for high-end sheetfed applications. They have been formulated for exceptional performance at high printing speeds and comply with ISO 2846-1 for shade and are suitable for the GRACoL G7 certification process.


INXCure™ LW (Long Wave) OSF inks

Formulated to cure using LED (Light Emitting Diode) bulbs and the new iron-doped additive lamps being offered by the top press manufacturers. They are 100 percent reactive and have excellent cure response to print at maximum press speeds. The inks cure with as little as one LED UV or low energy lamp, consuming less electricity, while virtually eliminating the heat and odor associated with traditional UV curing. They are suitable for a variety of coated and uncoated paper stocks, coated board stocks, foil stocks, and metallized paper.

INXFlex UV LED Flexographic inks

Premium, high-performance LED curing, INXFlex™ inks enable environmental improvements, resulting in lower energy consumption and minimized energy costs from production. are developed using specially selected raw materials that match the wavelength area typical for UV LED lamp output of 380-400 nm. The inks provide excellent adhesion and minimal plate swell on wide variety of flexible film and paper substrates.


INXhrc® Natural Based Inks

INXhrc natural-based inks are formulated to replace petrochemically derived ingredients with clean, renewable, and sustainable ingredients without sacrificing machine, processing, and end-use product performance. Brand owners and printers benefit from reduced regulatory risk and measurable, reportable CO2 savings.


INXCure™ UV Letterpress Inks

Designed for superior tag and label printing and formulated to be benzophenone and ITX free with excellent flow and transfer properties, they are suitable for all types of letterpress applications.


INXFlex™ Contour UV Flexographic Dual Cure Shrink Sleeve Inks

INXFlexTM Contour inks are specifically engineered for tried-and-true adhesion to shrink sleeves with heavy ink coverage and can be cured with either traditional UV or LED technology. These high-performance UV flexographic inks address the key needs determined by shrink sleeve converters maximizing shrink contouring while eliminating post-shrink adhesion loss and ink flaking. This ink system has excellent transfer capabilities and printability at high press speeds and is fast drying. The Dual Cure (DC) version allows you to switch from either UV or LED unit by unit, curing two ways with one ink system for increased efficiencies and lower applied costs.

INXFlex™ UV Flexographic Inks

INXFlex UV Flexographic inks are formulated to provide minimal plate swell on most tag & label, pressure sensitive, shrink and in-mold label applications. Formulated to be benzophenone and ITX free, they are an ultra-low viscosity pourable system that can be printed with aniloxes up to 1800-line screen with 1.0-1.2 BCM. They provide good adhesion to a wide variety of substrates while being V-pyrol free.

GelFlex-EB™ Electron Beam Flexographic Inks

Gelflex•EB inks help brand owners and printers achieve their sustainability goals by reducing or eliminating lamination layers in favor of surface print. They are ultra-high solid, gel-based inks which are fluid enough for CI flexo printing, but thicken rapidly, providing effective high-speed ink trapping in the wet state. With Gelflex•EB you can produce a wide array of eye-catching print designs using multi-colored palettes as well as various tactile packaging surfaces.


Fusion™ UV Hybrid

Fusion UV Hybrid inks are unsurpassed in the marketplace and offer a cure response equal to 100 percent reactive inks, expanded water window, and enhanced transfer over other hybrid systems. They may be run on conventional presses using roller company approved rollers and unlike other hybrid inks, Fusion eliminates the need for roller conditioning and special press configurations due to its special vehicle formulation. They have exceptional adhesion on synthetic substrates and run well with or without inline UV or aqueous coatings. Fusion inks qualify for the ASA Soy Ink Seal.


INXCure™ EB Web FTP NSO Inks

A unique electron beam curable ink system that has been specifically formulated for indirect food packaging applications. They have been engineered to work well on film-to-paper and film-to-film laminate constructions. Inks qualify for the Soy Ink Seal and are compliant with the Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21, the EuPIA inventory list, the directive 2002/72/EC and subsequent amendments, commission regulations (EC) 1935/2004 and 2023/2006 and the Resolution of Council of Europe on packaging inks AP(2005)2.


INXhrc™ RC Natural-based Inks

INXhrc RC natural-based inks are formulated to replace petro-chemically derived materials to the greatest extent possible with renewable, naturally occurring bio-sourced materials without sacrificing machine, processing or end use product performance. The UV and LED curable inks are suitable for printing on rigid plastic, such as dairy containers, cups and most other decorative plastic and foam-based packaging. The system is formulated to offer high strength and superb flow for vibrant colors with excellent color consistency.


INXCure™ CardPro

INXCure CardPro UV offset plastic lamination inks provide best-in-class bond strength between the synthetic card substrate and the plastic film overlay, preventing de-lamination and end use product failure. Formulated to maximize bond strength, INXCure CardPro will put printers at ease knowing their plastic cards will hold up to the demands of today’s brand owners and their customers.


With research and development, product stewardship, and quality all working together, INX provides assurance that our sensitive application packaging inks are of the highest quality and safe for their intended use.
