INX offers new solutions at PRINTING United Expo

With a wide range of ink solutions for packaging, POP and other applications, INX International will showcase new and established products at PRINTING United.

Renee Schouten, vice president of marketing, says brand owners and printers can expect to see a range of choices at the INX booth at the Las Vegas Convention Center October 19-21.

“This year we launched several new inks that directly address industry issues. The solutions we will have in our booth answer the call for better quality, better results and greater savings,” she said. “One thing that really impresses me is how successful our customers are with Triangle HIP and HSI premium UV curable alternative inks. They experience outstanding performance and other results that help their businesses. »

Both alternative inks meet GRACoL standards and G7 targets and offer many advantages. Triangle HIP inks are optimized for faster drying with lower cost UV lamps, and high consistency jetting on HP Scitex Industrial Printers: 9000, 10000, 11000, 15000 and 15500 series.

Triangle HSI inks work on high speed inkjet printers like the Inca Onset X1 flatbed for high volume packaging and POP jobs. It cures quickly with UV mercury or LED lamps and can be used indoors or outdoors as it is UV and water resistant with no coating or lamination.

HSI is available in six colors, plus white and orange to special order, and is backed by INX’s UV Ink Train warranty program

Since INX introduced VerifyInk security inks in June, Schouten said brand owners have expressed interest as they look for ways to protect the brand of their products. The most recent additions to the security ink portfolio include drop-on-demand (DOD) and continuous inkjet (CIJ) solutions.

“We are excited to offer a solution to the packaging market that combines high security with customer engagement. For brand owners, these are two important factors since counterfeit products cost the US economy billions every year,” added Schouten, who said free samples will be available at the booth. “

The new INXShield UV Flexo and GS Slip coatings also help brand owners in other ways. The first functional coatings for packaging applications to be formulated with BioCote antimicrobial technology, they are designed for application over water-based and cured UV dry inks (UV Flexo) and shrink film labels (GS Slip ). BioCote protects the coating by inhibiting odors, stains and material degradation, as well as microbes on the surface.

“Our UV Flexo coating provides an even coat with excellent gloss, slip and general strength properties. Together with GS Slip, the overprint varnish makes it an ideal solution for shrink printing with OPS, PETG and PVC,” said Schouten. “For brand owners who need an environmentally friendly ink to be in line with their sustainability goals, INXhrc natural-based inks and Genesis™ washable inks will do the job for them.”

A high-performance, bio-renewable ink for flexo, offset and gravure printing, INXhrc reduces the carbon footprint of packaging materials and contributes to a circular economy. Genesis washable inks facilitate the recycling of plastic films, contributing to the circular reuse of materials.
