Sun Chemical to introduce direct glass printing advancements

US-based producer of printing inks and pigments, Sun Chemical is all set to introduce its latest in direct glass printing with organic UV inks at Glasstec 2012, which will be held from 23-26 October in Dusseldorf, Germany.

In this regard, the company has produced a drinking glass to exhibit the different printing possibilities of direct glass printing with UV curing inks.

According to Sun Chemical, the glass uses the company’s Vitrocure UV curing ink from the SunVetro range, which prints bright colors and would be difficult to achieve with inorganic inks.

The glass, which showcases the quality print effects that can be achieved with UV organic inks, was printed with one design for three effects including full color; a thermochromic effect; and a frost effect.

Sun Chemical Industrial Inks European marketing manager Robin McMillan said the printed glass example demonstrates the packaging quality and possibilities that brands can achieve through using UV organic inks.

"Sun Chemical’s decoration solutions can help brands glass packaging stand-out on the shelf," McMillan said.
