Sun Chemical will be a sponsor and the ink supplier of choice at “Uteco Print Technology 2013,” an open house showcasing Uteco’s live demonstration of its Onyx HP 108 flexographic printer in its Kennesaw, Ga. facility. 
Held on November 6-7, Uteco will start the open house with a presentation at 10:30 a.m., followed by a press demonstration using Sun Chemical SunStrato Sunesterpackaging lamination printing inks.
Created specifically for printing on treated, coated, and polyvinylidene chloride coated polyester films, SunStrato Sunester inks are nitrocellulose-based, giving the bond performance and high color strength desired by printers without the concerns of a urethane-based system. 
Frequently used on pouches, dry food packaging, cooked food packaging and confectionary packaging, SunStrato Sunester inks are also formulated to ensure low solvent retentions in order to eliminate concerns for odor or migration. 
“We are pleased to support Uteco with their customer demonstrations and trial runs using our Sunester ink system. It is a partnership we look forward to continuing for many more years to come,” says Brendan Maunsell, regional sales manager of North American Inks at Sun Chemical. “We see this open house as a great opportunity to showcase the wide range of capabilities of our flexographic printing inks and explain how we can help meet the individual needs and printing requirements of our customers and prospects.”
