Wikoff Expands GelFlex Licensing Agreement
Wikoff Color Corporation’s license to manufacture and sell GelFlex EB Flexo products has recently expanded to include North America. Wikoff Color signed the new agreement with Technosolutions in early January and will bring this major innovation to customers in Africa, Australia, Central America, South America, the Caribbean, Japan, China, India, Europe and Russia.
“EB Flexo has the potential to be revolutionary for the packaging industry,” says Daryl Collins, VP of regional operations and marketing for Wikoff. “GelFlex capitalizes on electron beam curing being a leading food packaging safe energy-cure technology, giving converter’s the utmost confidence in their product performance.”
Adds Evan Benbow, Wikoff’s director of research and development: “Partnering with Technosolutions to manufacture and sell GelFlex is a fantastic opportunity for us to offer another cutting-edge solution to our customer base, particularly converter’s looking for a more ‘green’ option. Because EB inks and coatings have significantly reduced VOCs compared to solvent products, concerns surrounding VOCs, CO2 emissions reporting and explosion proofing your facilities are minimized.”
