Sun Chemical launched SunWave Lumina, a new range of high performance, UV LED curing sheetfed offset inks for commercial printing.
The SunWave Lumina range of inks is based on the latest highly engineered UV resin system and provides exceptionally fast and hard curing under UV LED and low energy mercury lamps for both single- and double-sided printing. SunWave Lumina is fully compliant with the latest EuPIA raw material guidelines.
SunWave Lumina also delivers on print quality with excellent dot gain and high gloss and mechanical resistance and is designed for Process Standard Offset printing to ISO12647.
“SunWave Lumina is a significant step forward for our portfolio of UV low-energy-curing offset inks,” said Jonathan Sexton, marketing manager, Energy Curing Products Europe, Sun Chemical. “Not only does the range meet the market’s need for robust inks that maximize the uptime of sheetfed presses by minimizing the cleaning time required during printing, but, based on our own benchmarking and customer tests on various sheetfed presses, it delivers best-in-class performance.”
The new SunWave Lumina process ink range is immediately available initially in Europe from Sun Chemical.
