- New solution is a vegetable oil-based printing ink for sheet-fed offset process
- Designed to help printers achieve visual results similar to electronic media whilst maintaining effectiveness in the printing process
Global consumables specialist Sun Chemical has launched SunLit Crystal, an “all-in-one” ink solution designed for print work where visual impression is important.
SunLit crystal is an “all-in-one” universal sheet-fed offset process ink set.
Sun said the increasing use of electronic media has resulted in consumers expecting similar vividness and placing a higher value on printed material.
SunLit Crystal enables printers to produce highly appealing prints whilst maintaining effectiveness in the printing process.
Vegetable oil-based ink
Sun said SunLit Crystal is a vegetable oil-based printing ink and is fully aligned with ISO 12647:2.
The ink can be used on straight or perfecting presses of all sizes. Sun added that the ink solution is faster in work and turn than most standard printing inks, and its high drying capability leads to print work with very good mechanical resistance, ensuring optimum pressroom efficiency.
Dr. Bernhard Fritz, product manager for sheet-fed systems Europe at Sun Chemical, said: ‘We know there is a demand for this product from our ongoing R&D and we've received high interest in this ink from Latin America as well as Asia.
‘Customers who work with electronic media are used to high quality and vivid images and SunLit Crystal can help replicate this quality in printed material to compete with all forms of media.’
