They are suitable for most tag & label, pressure sensitive, and in-mold label applications, and can be cured with both traditional UV or LED lamps. They have been formulated to be benzophenone free. They provide minimal plate swell and have good adhesion to a wide variety of substrates.

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.
