SunJet, the global inkjet brand of Sun Chemical and DIC, will demonstrate its developments in inkjet chemistry and its ability to collaborate on development projects with OEM partners, system integrators and printhead manufacturers for applications across a number of market sectors, including graphics, décor, textile, industrial and packaging.
Sun Chemical will showcase DIC’s proprietary SEPAREL® hollow fibre membrane technology for the degassing (removal of dissolved gasses) of inkjet ink, resulting in consistently smooth printing, reduced substrate and ink waste, shortened printer cleaning times and lower printer cleaning costs. Unlike traditional microfiltration membranes, SEPAREL® hollow fibre membranes significantly reduce inkjet ink evaporation during degasification and can degasify inkjet ink to the parts per billion (ppb) level.
Sun Chemical will also showcase:
• SunHytek - heat and humidity-resistant ink solutions for high-tech, appliance panel and automotive applications, for which a combination of high visual impact and long-term durability is required
• SunCarte® - high peel strength, colour-consistent screen and offset inks, adhesives and varnishes for laminated plastic cards
• SunPoly® - screen inks formulated for high-speed screen printing on a variety of container substrates
Damian Ward, Lead Chemist, Digital Customer Projects, Sun Chemical will present a segment at the show on ‘Critical Factors for Successful Development and Integration of Aqueous Inks in Industrial Print Processes’.
Commenting on Sun Chemical’s participation in InPrint 2023, Phil Jackman, Global Product Manager – Digital, says: “We are delighted to showcase our latest developments within inkjet chemistry, as well as our collaborative projects with OEMs. Inkjet technology is a key enabler for many industrial based applications, which is why it is increasingly being used in, or alongside, manufacturing processes. We are excited about how its use in this field will evolve and we continue to stay committed to the research and development of ground-breaking solutions to cater for this growing demand. We are confident that our collaborative approach and combined expertise as a complete solutions provider, covering inks, primers and coatings, will enable visitors to our stand to gain a unique perspective into our cutting-edge innovations to help them improve their own manufacturing processes, increase competitive advantage and elevate their market positioning.”
