Sun Chemical will display its full range of solutions for credit and laminated cards, including its screen and offset inks, pre-laid overlays, pre-patched holograms, magnetic tapes, engraved lamination plates, security applications and electronic materials.
These products will be showcased during the 2019 ICMA EXPO. Visitors will be introduced to Sun Chemical’s SunCarte family of screen and offset inks, adhesives and varnishes, which can be customised to deliver various metallic finishes while offering high bond strength, adherence to lamination and consistent colour reproduction. SunCarte inks are easy to use and provide adhesion to common plastics, helping printers meet the needs of the plastic card market.
‘During the event, we look forward to showing how customers can streamline their card printing operations through Sun Chemical’s wide selection of solutions,’ said Anthony Renzi, vice president, product management of packaging inks, North American Inks, Sun Chemical.
The SunCarte product line includes UV screen inks, offering a variety of finishing options for use on plastic cards. SunCarte UVPC Opaque White ink was specially designed to work on coloured PVC core material, while SunCarte UVPC-Clear ink can be used to provide pearl, silver, gold and special effect colour finishes. UVPC-Clear also offers adhesive properties as the ultra-thin cured ink film minimises the buildup profile.
SunCarte also includes an Offset UV Plastic Card ink series designed exclusively for use on plastic cards. Compatible with a wide range of plastics, SunCarte Offset UV Plastic Card inks offer high bond strength, excellent printability and heat resistant colours. The plastic card inks can also be used with the Sun Chemical Dispenser Programme’s MX12 ink dispensers.
With its acquisition of Italian-based C.T.LAY, Sun Chemical offers one of the most technologically-advanced product portfolios for the plastic and security cards market, including expanded manufacturing capabilities, technical service departments, and sales teams to better serve its customers worldwide.
