Schaumburg, IL – April 11, 2017 – INX International Ink Co. (booth 107) will launch INXhrc, a new eco-friendly product line at FTA’s Info*Flex 2017. The high performance inks and coatings, which allow for flexographic and gravure printing on a wide array of end-use packages, will be showcased with special effects inks and coatings during the May 1-2 event at the Phoenix Convention Center.
INXhrc is an ink system developed to replace petro-chemically derived ingredients with clean, renewable and sustainable alternatives. It allows brand owners and printers to reduce their impact on the environment, while simultaneously maximizing efficiencies with a definitive product that separates them from the competition.
In combination with INXSperse™ Plus Dispersions ink bases, INXhrc products afford the ability to print with color strength and performance. Jim Garvey, Technical Manager for INX, said some packaging options being trialed include sandwich wrappers, plastic and paper carry out bags, folding cartons, trays, corrugated containers, hot and cold beverage cups, napkins and labels.
“The INXhrc product line has received a great reception from printers. On the brand owner side, these products are gaining wide acceptance from retail outfitters and food service organizations who have made a commitment to lowering their environmental impact,” noted Garvey.
“Besides performance, the INXhrc line is compelling brand owners to impact their supply chains and remove harmful packaging ingredients that could pose health concerns to their customers. That’s why INXhrc is the perfect fit. These products address those concerns and are free of allergens, fluorochemicals, heavy metals and nanomaterials. Printers also enjoy the benefits of an ink system that delivers performance at near zero VOC levels in most cases. This will afford them lowered requirements for reporting, as well as increase the ease of securing new permits.”
Garvey explained that printers have reported good results with the INXhrc product line across a diverse portfolio of packaging substrates. This includes opacity, hold out, clean printing in screens and traps, excellent rewet and mileage, and ease of clean up.
“INXhrc offers the versatility and customization to run multiple print applications across many processing vehicles on most equipment,” he concluded. “In many cases, multiple ink vehicles can be consolidated into a single vehicle, thereby reducing inventory levels and increasing efficiencies.”
INX has an excellent track record with brand-differentiating special effects inks and coatings. For use on general-purpose food packaging or retort pouches, these products are engineered to connect consumers to brands via eye appeal and enhanced shelf recognition. At Info*Flex, INX will display Matte Contrast, Soft Touch, Thermochromic, Tactile and other special effects inks. In addition, learn more about how INX Matte Varnish intensifies dull colors without decreasing color depth to give any package a more natural look.
