Van Son Introduces Vs9 UV Ink


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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
