Sun Chemical’s SunVetro screen ink series overcomes direct print on to glass issues

Providing an alternative to traditional ceramic enamel printing, Sun Chemical’s SunVetro screen ink series comprises a portfolio of organic UV curing and conventional solvent-based inks for direct printing on to flat or hollow glass surfaces. The range is available in a variety of strong and bright standard mixing colors as well as a selection of special effects such as frosting or etch effects, thermochromics inks along with covert and overt brand protection features. This enables printers to deliver the highest quality printed output with bold accurate color reproduction allowing greater creativity, color consistency and brand integrity. Sun Chemical will demonstrate its latest offering of conventional and ultraviolet (UV) curing screen inks and effect varnishes for direct glass printing at GlassPrint 2015 in Düsseldorf, Germany, from 25 to 26 November.

The SunVetro range is a suitable substrate for a whole range of products, from food and drinks to cosmetics, ceramics, mobile phones, computer screens, gaming machine mirrors, furniture, transforming and branding it in a way that is functional and aesthetically pleasing. The SunVetro range also features products for spray coating glass and a cold-end coating suitable for use as a post-treatment to improve abrasion resistance. In addition, the SunVetro ink series, which is heavy metal and cadmium-free, is fully compliant with packaging regulations, extending its use for food and sensitive product packaging applications.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
