Sun Chemical and KBA-MetalPrint partner on metal deco inks.
At the 2017 METPACK trade fair, Sun Chemical and KBA-MetalPrint announced the commencement of cooperation in the field of printing inks for metal decorating. The partnership relates above all to the three-piece can segment.
The metal sheets for such cans are printed on presses of the MetalStar and Mailander series.
The partnership features the future inclusion of inks from Sun Chemical into the starter kits supplied with MetalStar 3 and Mailander 280 metal decorating presses, as well as support.
The starter kits for MetalStar 3 and Mailander presses include either the high-performance UV ink series DAICURE 5LM, the conventional ink series SunTrio DAIMETAL or the highly flexible SunTrio TOBA series, depending on the particular needs.
A further objective of the new cooperation is to drive specific developments in printing inks tailored to the special needs of the metal decorating market.
