Sun Chemical will showcase its SunVetro ink solutions at Glasstec 2014, the international trade fair for glass production and processing in Dϋsseldorf, 21-24 October 2014.

SunVetro comprises a portfolio of organic inks for glass which includes UV curing and conventional solvent based inks, available in standard mixing colours, as well as numerous options for special effects, such as frost or etch effects, thermochromic inks and even covert and overt brand protection features.The SunVetro range also features products for spray coating glass and a cold-end coating suitable for use as a post-treatment to improve abrasion resistance.The range can be used on glass, including bottles and drink ware, cosmetics and medical vials, ceramics, cell phones, computer screens, gaming machine mirrors and furniture. The full range will be exhibited in Hall 12, booth number C49-1 at the show.

Visitors will be able to see how glass, an ideal substrate for a whole range of products, from food, to cosmetics, to drinks can be branded in a way that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. This, in addition to is barrier properties and recycling credentials, maximises its appeal to consumers and helps brand owners and retailers to drive sales.

Robin McMillan, European Marketing Manager, industrial inks, Sun Chemical says: “Glass has always been an attractive substrate for brand owners because of its barrier resistance and widespread consumer appeal. However, challenges in being able to directly decorate glass can dilute brand impact and as some screen inks contain heavy metals and VOCs, this has made it less practical, at times, to print on glass.

He continues, “However, SunVetro overcomes these challenges, as glass decoration with these inks ensure colours are vibrant and of sufficiently high quality, leading to a livelier and more reassuring shelf presence. Achieving this, without the use of heavy metals and VOCs, which are continually subject to greater regulation, is a real boon for the glass decoration sector.”
