Sun Chemical Security expands products, services for currency printing.

Sun Chemical Security's intaglio inks have been selected for use on one of the world's high-profile currencies, with production scheduled to begin in 2007. The decision comes following the intaglio cylinder wipe ink system's successful evaluation in multiple currency printing applications around the world.

Sun Chemical Security continues to build its presence as a provider of security inks and coatings to the currency printing industry. The company supplies sheetfed offset inks, sequential UV numbering inks, overprint varnish and iridescent screen inks for banknotes. It also provides additional technologies and services that meet its currency-printing customers' requests for high speed processing, as well as a full suite of covert and discrete taggant technologies to thwart counterfeiting.

"Given the high standards set in this very specialized and sophisticated sector of the graphic arts industry, we are proud of our accomplishments to date," said John Luppino, general manager, Sun Chemical Security. "We believe our intaglio ink's selection for use in currency printing during 2007 will be only one of several situations where our ink is chosen based on its outstanding press performance and ink film integrity, as well as the in-depth technical support we provide."

According to Mr. Luppino, the currency business demands a high level of product quality and service. "Consequently, we already are operating a hill-service currency ink manufacturing and quality control center in Europe and are enhancing our existing currency ink manufacturing operation in North America, with quality and capacity in mind. In addition, we have expanded our currency ink team, adding professional personnel with a high level of expertise in banknote printing to ensure that we are able to offer outstanding service, tailored to our currency printing customers' needs."
