Fujifilm at Labelexpo Europe showcased a brand new ink called Sericol Flexo JDR designed to offer the best possible quality and performance to flexo printers. The company’s award-winning ink factory in Broadstairs in the UK is known for developing some of the world’s leading inks including graphic and industrial screen inks and inks for textile printing, as well as an impressive range of UV narrow web and flexo inks designed to maximise quality and efficiency and minimise production costs.
The Sericol Flexo JD ink range is a narrow web high gloss UV flexo ink system designed for general purpose narrow web label printing on a variety of substrates. The new Flexo JDR ink is ITX and benzophenone free and, thanks to improved manufacturing processes and the use of the latest raw materials, Flexo JDR also offers significant improvements in a number of key areas:
Product range – Flexo JDR is available in CMYK and white, alongside the existing JD range it offers printers more options and increased flexibility in achieving the best quality finish on press.
Quality – Flexo JDR manages to improve on the already very high quality standards of the JD range.
Performance – The use of the very latest raw materials and improved manufacturing processes mean that Flexo JDR inks are faster curing, and offer improved adhesion.
Balanced CMYK ink set – All JDR process colours can be used with the same specification anilox rollers.
In addition to all these improvements, printers will also benefit from all the key advantages of the original Flexo JD ink range which include low viscosity press ready colours; adhesion to a wide range of synthetic substrates and papers; high colour strength; dedicated Pantone formulations; and, high gloss.
