Sun Chemical is exhibiting its broad portfolio of products, applicable to a number of market sectors, such as functional, industrial and specialty print.
SunJet, the global inkjet brand of Sun Chemical and DIC, will demonstrate its most recent developments in inkjet chemistry and its ability to collaborate on development projects with OEM partners, system integrators and printhead manufacturers for current and future applications across graphics, décor, textile, industrial and packaging.
The company will showcase its range at InPrint 2018 in Milan, Italy from 20-22 November. SunJet will showcase DIC’s proprietary SEPAREL hollow fibre membrane technology for the degassing (removal of dissolved gasses) of inkjet ink, resulting in consistently smooth printing, reduced substrate and ink waste, shortened printer cleaning times and lower printer cleaning costs. Unlike traditional microfiltration membranes, SEPAREL hollow fibre membranes significantly reduce inkjet ink evaporation during degasification and can degasify inkjet ink to the parts per billion (ppb) level.
On the stand, the Sun Chemical Advanced Materials division will highlight SunTronic, developed to cater for the growth in printed electronics and touch-screen technology applications. The range includes new conductive solutions incorporating nano-silver particles for improved sinter at lower temperatures, advanced dielectric materials as well as its latest etch-resist solutions and masks.
Sun Chemical will also showcase the following range of industrial products:
• SunHytek – heat and humidity-resistant ink solutions for high-tech, appliance panel and automotive applications, for which a combination of high visual impact and long-term durability is required.
• SunCarte – high peel strength, colour-consistent screen and offset inks, adhesives and varnishes for laminated plastic cards
• SunPoly – screen inks formulated for high-speed screen printing on a variety of container substrates.
The Sun Chemical team will showcase its technical expertise, knowledge and understanding of the diversity of end-user industrial-based applications by presenting its portfolio of leading inks and inkjet technologies used extensively in applications within the automotive, high technology interior décor, metal and plastic decoration, direct to product, functional print and printed electronic industries.
During the event, visitors will have the chance to hear from SunJet spokespeople in the InPrint conference. On 21 November, Phil Jackman, product manager at SunJet, will take part in a panel discussion looking at the next big opportunities for inkjet in industrial applications.
On 20 November, David Reid, global sales Manager, SunJet, will deliver a presentation titled Aqueous inkjet solutions for digital packaging, which will look at the challenges in the world of digital packaging print as well as the market requirements for ink technology.
