Rotogravure Inks

Reverse Lamination Inks

Reverse Lamination Inks
Series Description Substrates

UVA

UNIVURE-A (UVA) is a multipurpose toluene based lamination ink designed for various kinds of food packaging such as snack-foods, frozen-foods, boil-able and retort-able pouches (on request). UNIVURE-A has an excellent ink transfer, printability, very good color reproduction, low solvent retention. It shows excellent bonding strength in various lamination systems.

Corona and chemical treated PET films, Corona treated Nylon films (treatment not less than 52 dynes / cm)

Corona treated OPP films (treated not less than 38 dynes / cm), PVDC coated films Cellophane film (Printing grade)

SUNEX

SUNEX Inks are Toluene free multipurpose printing inks series for reverse lamination gravure application on variety of flexible films using solvent based and solvent less adhesives. The SUNEX series inks can be used with a wide range of printing speeds for in-line as well as off line lamination process. The formulation has been adjusted for medium to high speeds (200-400 m/min) with electronically engraved cylinders.

For the use of SUNEX inks at other speeds or gravure conditions, please contact DIC Technical Department. The SUNEX is a multipurpose inks series that covers all the general applications in food packaging for printing on different types of lamination structures for packing products like (snacks, fertilizers, pickles, dry milk powders, frozen foods etc), which may or may not need pasteurization or sterilization (depending on the choice of pigments used – contact DIC Technical Department).

Chemically treated polyester, Corona treated polyester Corona treated BOPP. Due to the features of these substrates, in-line corona treatment is recommended. The appropriate ink adhesion is always obtained with correct corona treatment level. BOPP film is considered correctly treated when its minimum surface tension is 38 dynes/cm (380mN/cm) and PET at 52d/cm (520mN/cm).Due to the great variety of substrates available in the market, it is recommended that laboratory trials are done prior to the industrial printing. To print on substrates not on this list, please contact DIC local Technical Department.

GPL/GSTAR

The G STAR series inks can be used for in-line and off- line lamination jobs. G STAR can also be used on a wide range of printing speeds. The formulation has been adjusted for medium speeds (150-200m/min) and electronically engraved cylinders. For the use of G STAR at other speeds (>400m/min), please contact your local Technical Department. G STAR inks are developed for reverse gravure printing on flexible films, suitable for lamination with water based, solvent based and solvent free adhesives. The G STAR series covers the general applications in packaging printing. It is recommended for printing on different types of lamination structures (chips, snacks, etc), which may or may not need pasteurization or sterilization (depending on the pigments used, contact our local Technical Department). The odor level and solvent retention levels are good. In correct application conditions (Proper drying and ventilation in machine), it can be between less than 10mg/m² for a 200% printed surface (depending on the substrate used).

Bi-oriented polypropylene

Co-extruded polypropylene

Chemically treated polyester

Corona treated polyester

BRILL

BRILL inks are formulated for reverse printing of treated Polyester film by the gravure process for subsequent adhesive lamination in combination with suitable adhesives.

BRILL inks are suitable for printing onto pre-treated or in-line corona treated Polyester film/primed polyester. Treatment levels should be between 48 - 52 dynes/cm to ensure good adhesion.

ASTERLAM/ FLASH

The ASTERLAM ink series can be used for in-line lamination with a wide range of printing speeds. ASTERLAM inks can also be used for off- line lamination.

The formulation has been adjusted for medium speeds (150-250m/min) for chemical/electronically engraved cylinders. For the use of ASTERLAM inks at different speeds and conditions, please contact our local Technical Department.

TNZ

TNZ Inks are medium performance reverse lamination inks for gravure applications on BOPP and PET film for subsequent lamination with different film combinations using solvent based, solvent free and water based adhesives.

Corona or chemical treated PET films, Corona treated Nylon films (treatment not less than 520mN / cm), Corona treated OPP films (treatment not less than 380mN / cm), PVDC coated films Cellophane film (Printing grade).
