INX International Ink Co. plans to offer a full complement of water-based and UV Flexo inks, including the new AquaTech™ ION X, at FTA’s Info*Flex 2018. INX (booth 111) will also display high performance solvent inks and coatings at the event, to be held May 7-8 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
AquaTech ION X is the newest addition to a powerhouse brand of inks that offer strong performance, superior press stability at a wide range of speeds, brilliant color strength and many other advantages. ION X is a crossover FleX system that will run on paper and most film stocks, and represents another AquaTech option that boosts print, film and thermal label printing on anilox rolls up to 1500 lines per inch.
AquaTech ION C Adhesive Kill and INXhrc are other water-based products that will attract attention. ION C Adhesive Kill is a waterborne deadener that can be applied to either the relief liner or to the adhesive itself. Designed to work on a wide range of adhesives, it is a user-friendly coating with no settling issues and is easy to clean up. INXhrc made a highly successful debut at Info*Flex last year. Developed so brand owners can reduce their impact on the environment, it produces eye-catching flexographic and gravure printing on end-use packages.
The UV Flexo side of the business will be well represented. In addition to a selection of Tag and Label UV Flexo inks, INX will feature a pair of Low Migration systems – INXFlex™ CLM II and INXFlex UV LM Shrink. The former is Swiss Ordinance compliant and the latter is a Shrink application for in-direct food contact. Also introduced will be the INXFlex UV LED inks, running on a wide variety of pressure sensitive label substrates and suitable for the Shrink and IML processes.
At this event two years ago, Innova™ solvent inks were introduced. The high performing ink system is a great choice for printers looking for improved printability and a way to reduce inventory levels. Printers have since experienced exceptional film adhesion with excellent bond, color strength and resolubility.
INX will also display Matte Contrast, Soft Touch and other special effects inks. Stop by booth 111 and ask an INX expert for more information about all of these products.
