Inks, Whites & OPV for Lables, Shrink-Sleeves and Plastic Tubes printing

The SICURA Flex Dual Cure flexo printing ink series is a dual-cure system curing by radical mechanism with UV-LED light at a wave-length of 395 nm as well as UV-curing mercury arc-lamps. It is suitable for processing on all types of in-line label or packaging printing machines on a wide range of plastic materials and other substrates.

SICURA Flex Dual Cure is a non-low-migration inks series formulated in Compliance to the EuPIA Exclusion Policy for Printing Inks and Related Materials. The series is only acceptable for food packaging, if the processing conditions rule out the possibility of set-off in the reel or stack and the design of the final printed article ensures reliable functional barrier properties to migration.

The offered product portfolio is augmented by additional products such as opaque whites, metallic inks, varnishes for various applications, adhesives, as well as primers to improve adhesion on demanding printing substrates.
