Narrow Web Tag & Label
Our high-performance UV and water-based inks and coatings are designed to deliver excellent color fidelity, strong adhesion, and are easy-to-run and maintain for narrow web tag and label applications.
AquaTech™ Water-based Film, Paper, and Foil Flexographic Inks
AquaTech inks present a significant advancement for paper, film, and thermal label printing on anilox rolls up to 1500 line screens. Each water-based system offers strong performance with superior press stability for better printability at a wide range of press speeds. Taking into consideration the brilliant color strength and outstanding transparency and resolution, AquaTech ION is the ideal choice for narrow to mid-web flexo operations for tag and label work.
INXLam™ and Mylex™ Water-based Flexographic Lamination Inks
Water based flexographic lamination ink systems are developed to work with solvent-less, water based, and UV adhesive systems. INX water lamination inks demonstrate exceptional film adhesion, excellent bond strength, superior color density, and excellent water resistance. They enable line work printability with up to 800 line screen anilox rolls and process work printability with up to 1000 line screen anilox rolls.
ENERGY CURABLE INKS
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.
INXSperse™ Water-based Color Concentrates
INXSperse highly pigmented color concentrates are suitable to be let down into a full range of inks for diverse applications on a variety of substrates. Available in a wide array of colors including barium-free, copper-free, fade resistant, heat resistant, bleed resistant, opaque, and transparent. INXSperse provides absolute maximum versatility and value in dispenser applications providing the printer with complete control over inventory and process needs.
