Sun Chemical’s inks were used on packaging created by Sunshine Plastics, making this the two companies’ second year collaborating with one another. A Sun Chemical customer for more than 10 years, Sunshine Plastics turns to Sun Chemical to help provide inks and varnishes that specifically meet the needs of their individual customers.
“We have a lot of trust in Sun Chemical that they will help us meet our needs,” says James Chuang, owner of Sunshine Plastics. “We’ve come to Sun Chemical for a specific type of ink color or varnish that didn’t exist previously and they would help us get what we needed along with the appropriate type of finish, whether it was a gloss or matted look. Sun Chemical helps us come up with inks with stronger colors and densities, whether for a lamination or surface print job. I’ve asked if there is a way to make the ink a little finer so that we can get a stronger color, and Sun Chemical has delivered time and time again. I really appreciate their capabilities and versatility.”
Sun Chemical offers a wide range of custom-tailored technical support to its customers ranging from polymer design and synthesis and color science to pigment synthesis, chemical analysis, and materials characterization.
“Sun Chemical offers us a lot of flexibility with technical support,” says Chuang. “They come here and help us achieve the previously unachievable. The relationship works because when we need something, we immediately get the technical support we need.”
