Van Son Holland Ink Corporation announced the introduction of Vs9, a UV-curable offset ink that is available in formulations for paper, hybrid, and foil/plastic. Vs9 offers a flexibility that answers the growing demand for high quality UV applications, such as foils, static clings, and all types of consumer packaging and point of purchase materials. This ink dries almost instantly, allowing for a faster turnaround and lower emissions. Vs9 will replace Van Son\’s current UV offering, Sonacure.
\”Offering UV-cured printing as a value-added process for customers who want to convey a high quality image is fast becoming a standard for commercial printers,\” said John Sammis, vice president of sales and marketing for Van Son. \”We are excited about the increased capability, productivity and savings in time Vs9 will deliver, bringing bottom-line benefits to our customers-which is always our goal.\”
Vs9 is available in formulations for use on coated or uncoated paper, board stock, foil and plastic substrates, and on lacquered or corona-treated surfaces and will work with ease on any size offset press equipped with a UV-curing unit. It has excellent adhesion qualities, stays fresh overnight on-press, and has high-intensity pigmentation. Process colours, Opaque White, and the full range of Pantone standard and mixed colours are offered.
