Monarch Color Corp. has launched its new UV flexo inks for the high-speed, in-mold and shrink-sleeve printing market. The company says cured flexo inks have reached a new level of performance with its latest technological breakthrough in UV-cured flexographic ink systems. The system is based on a bio-renewable proprietary oligomer system and provides pigment wetting and low-viscosity base colors. This base-color approach allows for diversification in the production of various finished ink requirements based on the customer’s applications, officials say.

“Meeting the needs of the industry and our customers has demanded a ‘commitment to excellence’ in the development of our latest ink system. The applications are endless,” says Aaron Blank, vice president of sales and marketing at Monarch Color Corp. “We have met and exceeded the demands for high-speed UV flexographic printing. The true Evolution is that it is not just a one-dimensional ink. Not only will it give our customers incredibly high print speeds, but it is also good for a multitude of other applications from in-mold labels to shrink-sleeve printing. The performance will impact every level of your production, from color control to throughput speeds.”
