Talk about the latest progress of shrink label printing materials and inks

shrink labels are becoming more and more popular, and they are growing rapidly with a double-digit percentage every year. There are at least two reasons for this achievement. First, shrink labels can make full use of the surface of the whole container and play a very good role in the reproduction and transmission of images and information. On the other hand, the container itself can also be made into various unique shapes, which is not limited by how to label later, which can greatly enhance the shelf appeal of packaged products

however, it is these special shapes that put forward higher requirements and challenges for label materials and printing inks. In addition to dealing with the adhesion of non porous film materials, shrink label printing inks also have to deal with several other factors to make it better developed, including deformation (scratch, delamination, etc.), paste, low COF (coefficient of friction) and low odor for food and beverage packaging. These requirements also promote the further development of printing materials and inks

suitable for specific materials

in terms of materials, PVC, PETG and OPS occupy most of the market of shrink labels. According to manuetrivas, technical director of ppl division of Siegwerk company, the first two account for 90% - 95% of the market share. Since each film has its own surface characteristics, Rivas stressed that each film needs to use specific ink components to obtain appropriate performance

in order to meet the changing needs, Siegwerk company provides solvent based inks specially designed for each shrinking thin material and printing process. In addition, flexographic printers using water-based inks can print with their cws-2100 series inks on corona treated PVC and PETG films, while sicura series inks can meet the needs of UV printing. In order to facilitate people to choose ink, the company also launched a solvent based ink accesssleeve, which is suitable for all film materials

inx international ink company has developed shrinkpac series inks, which can be used in a variety of materials and suitable for a variety of printing processes, such as shrinkpac for gravure printing and flexoshrinkpac for flexographic printing. While simplifying and accelerating the turnover of live parts, our ink has also solved some other problems encountered by many shrink label printers. In aims at the production and sales "found in the survey; Ground bar steelrdquo Luigideflaviisjr, head of X liquid ink division of the project of "build while build without approval" Said

develop in the direction of multi-function

while ink suppliers provide a series of ink products to meet the printing of a specific shrink label, inks suitable for a variety of shrink label materials are developing rapidly. In the past, many inks were suitable for a specific material, but now, the updated series of inks show multi-functional characteristics on a variety of materials. Johnkalkowski, North American Marketing Manager of Sun Chemical Company, said that this is conducive to reducing the cleaning times of printing machines, reducing cross contamination, and controlling the amount of ink

a recent development from XSYS is flexocurexsuv free radical curing ink, which can provide 70% shrinkage and is suitable for a variety of film materials, including PVC, OPS, OPP, pet and PETG, as well as surface and internal printing

and uvisleeve of Fuji LECO is another UV flexographic printing ink, which is designed according to various characteristics of shrinkage process

fultz, the marketing manager of the company, emphasized several main qualities of uvsleeve, such as low COF, low chemical odor and maximum shrinkage, in order to facilitate the shrinkage of label materials. In addition, they also provide white ink with high opacity. The function of low COF is mainly reflected in the sealing process, which allows the sleeve label to quickly pass through the labeling device after sealing

in terms of materials, PVC, PETG and OPS occupy most of the market of shrink labels. According to manuetrivas, technical director of ppl division of Siegwerk company, the first two occupy 9 and expand the market share of 0% - 95% of productivity.

In order to facilitate people to choose ink, the company also launched a solvent based ink accesssleeve, which is suitable for all film materials

in it is best to cover it with cloth when not in use. X International ink company has developed shrinkpac series inks, which can be used for a variety of materials and suitable for a variety of printing processes, such as shrinkpac for gravure printing and flexoshrinkpac for flexographic printing. While simplifying and accelerating the turnover of live parts, our ink also solves some other problems encountered by many shrink label printers on a daily basis.

when designing UV inks for shrink label printing, bobwaddington, general manager of uvitec, pointed out that the selected resin and photoinitiator must take into account the shrinkage of the film, not scratch the material, and have good performance in a relatively cold environment, such as no distortion. Uvitec recently launched a new UV shrinkage label printing ink series, which improves the scratch resistance. Only by understanding the performance and anti delamination performance of each part

waterink technology company provides both water-based inks and UV inks, which can be applied to the usual shrink label printing. Processors can use the best characteristics of each ink to meet their respective needs, such as the economy of water-based ink, the opacity or labeling efficiency of UV ink, etc
