Developing influential products that meet or exceed market demands is always the goal for INX International Ink Co., the global leading supplier of metal decorating ink for 2-piece cans and flat sheet metal decorating. When Cannex reunites June 1-4 in Guangzhou, China, INX (booth 701) will introduce three new ink systems including the INXSpec™ Brand Color Perfection System for Monobloc decorators.
INXSpec is a unique brand management program that duplicates perfect color to deliver consistent results time after time. Being unveiled for the first time at Cannex are the MDO Base System for Impact Extruded Metal Containers, and the INXCure PrintPro process colors for flat sheet metal decorating. INX also will exhibit the INXCure® PrintPro base system for flat sheet metal decorating and the CP100 UV digital cylindrical printer.
“The new products we have developed for Cannex reflect our worldwide commitment to the metal decorating industry,” commented Rick Clendenning, President & CEO of INX International Ink Co. “Since Cannex was last held two years ago, our R&D division continues to shine by utilizing the latest technology to bring new products to market. We also opened a new facility in England dedicated to metal decorating. No other company can match the capability we have in the marketplace.”
INXSpec works with INX MDO thermoset metal decorating inks to deliver brand color consistency with highly accurate dispensing solutions (+/- 0.001 lbs. – 0.5 grams) in only four steps. It formulates and replicates the exact color chemistry and adhesion for a specific metal substrate in a matter of minutes, making it the most efficient system available.
The MDO Base System, formulated for Monobloc containers, offers tremendous benefits such as short dwell times and improved transfer, ink flow and scratch resistance. Available in a full range of base and permanent colors. MDO is also compatible with exterior coatings.
Formulated for excellent fabrication and flexibility, INXCure PrintPro process colors provide terrific printability and improved misting with fast cure response. Designed for use on crowns, screw caps, closures, 2-piece DRD cans, welded aerosols and decorative tin applications, these UV Curable inks are compatible with a variety of exterior coatings including cationic UV chemistries.
Visitors can see first-hand the digital printing capabilities available from INX International Ink Co. in booth 701. The CP100 UV digital cylindrical printer is an ideal, cost-effective solution for the short-run production of 2-piece aluminum cans. As part of INX’s EVOLVE Advanced Digital Solutions line, it uses UV LED advanced digital technology to produce brilliant color cans in minutes.
