Nazdar Introduces Versacon Classic V5000 Container Ink
Nazdar, the largest North American manufacturer of screen and digital printing inks, announces Versacon
Classic V5000, the newest addition to Nazdar’s ink lines for the container printing market. Versacon Classic
V5000 is a two-part solvent-based ink with excellent chemical resistance for treated polyethylene and polypropylene
"Solvent-based inks continue to be prevalent in small to medium size print shops where the capital investment
of UV equipment is prohibitive," according to Phil McGugan, Vice President of Global Sales and Marketing for
Nazdar. "As Nazdar continues to expand into the global market for screen printing inks, the need for a very
stable, solvent-based ink for container printing is apparent."
The two-part formulation (ink plus catalyst) provides excellent stability during shipment and storage. Once the
catalyst is added, Versacon Classic V5000 is fast drying, high gloss, and exhibits excellent resistance to a wide
range of solvents and chemicals. Available in 12 standard printing colors, 12 PMS® base tints, and three
metallic colors, the ink line is available exclusively through Nazdar distributors.
