Uflex’s long suit at Labelexpo India 2018 – Stand K10

Uflex to launch new line of UV and UV LED inks


At the upcoming Labelexpo India 2018, Uflex will be exhibiting in Stand K10  at India Expo Center & Mart, from 22 to 25 November 2018. At the event, Uflex’s Chemical Division will be launching a new line of UV and UV LED inks for sheetfed offset, letterpress and narrow web applications for various kinds of paper/paperboard and plastic substrates. Along with the high performance inks, medium and general performance inks with food safety compliance will be on display. The company will also announce its formal launch of its Flexgreen series product range (dedicated UV LED inks and coatings for offset application) and Flexcure series product range (UV inks and coatings for sheetfed, letterpress and narrow web application) during the show.

Uflex Chemical Division is venturing into offset with UV LED inks for offset and NW. Uflex Chemicals will also showcase water-based products such as PUR mono component adhesive, dry & wet bond lamination, side pasting adhesive, e-flute adhesives, water-based coatings and primers for offset.

Uflex’s Holography Division will be launching labels with registered Lens Technology printed with the new Orthotec machine. The entire product range of Uflex’s Holography division, including holograms, films, stamping foils, holographic paper/paperboard and self-adhesive labels with all the new developments, suited to meet and enhance requirements of all brands, will be on display. Labels with screen effect will also be on display.

Uflex’s Cylinder Division will launch Elastomer Flexo Printing Sleeves & Elastomer Flexo Printing Plate and Gravure Cylinders for Glitter printing. The newly installed flexo plate making line from Esco CDI ensures high res optics for perfect details/resolutions from 2000-2540 ppi (standard optics) and 2400-4000 ppi (high-res optics), screens up to 300 lpi and 1-99% dots. The output is compatible with offset and gravure quality and consistency. .

Laser-engraved Elastomer Plates features include highest quality print not only in line work but also in half tone images, consistent print quality due to transfer of all kinds of flexo inks, viz. water based, UV, E-Beam, ketone group, and ethyl acetate, and increased efficiency due to lesser setup time on the press with optimal register. It has better control on DGC on highlights and mid-tone as well as joint-less Elastomer sleeves (to mount directly into the press).

Uflex’s Cylinder Division will also showcase an array of flexo printing and gravure printing products with non contact, direct laser engraving technology with a distinct edge for precision, control and accuracy.

Additionally, gravure cylinders for glitter printing, anilox cylinders, very high gsm and very low gsm coating cylinders, and embossing cylinders for paper, foil, tobacco, liquor cartons and leather will be on display in the gravure printing category. z
