Ink Evolution For Flex Pack

Ink Evolution for Flex Pack

When flexible packaging really started expanding into different areas, including frozen goods, pet food, and cold drinks, there wasn't much emphasis on ink. It was simply a matter of price and how quickly the ink could be shipped to the press.

Here we are decades later, where there is a huge emphasis on the type of ink used in flexible packaging. For starters, quality is a main concern. How can printers produce Gravure-like quality while still maintaining costs? The solution, Gelflex-EB electron beam ink.

Second, cost became a major challenge as profits decreased in this competitive marketplace. How can printers cut energy consumption, ink laydown, and reduce waste? The answer, Gelflex-EB ink.

Third, sustainability came to the forefront driven by many different environmental movements across the globe. Printers wanted a reduction in solvent emissions along with a cleaner and safer work environment. Gelflex-EB and eBeam curing became the solution.

Electron beam ink shows how innovation and application development can produce better final print products.
