INX International’s flexographic inks are second to none in the industry. Innova™ and ShrinkPac F™ are a pair of solvent inks that will be featured at Info*Flex 2016.

Innova is a high performance ink system geared for printers who are looking to improve printability, as well as lower their ink inventory levels. These universal lamination inks are designed to work with a variety of solvent-based, water-based and solvent-less adhesive systems. Printers can count on exceptional film adhesion and excellent bond, color strength and resolubility. Innova prints cleanly, with excellent heat and adhesive smear resistance and very low solvent retention levels.

ShrinkPac F is a premium process ink used for shrinkable film labels. Regarded by customers as a fast drying ink with superb printability at high speeds, it prints well at 1000 line aniloxes and provides excellent film adhesion to substrates such as shrinkable polyester, PVC and oriented polystyrene. Printers also give it very good marks for high strength, plus scratch and scuff and blocking resistance.

INXFlex™ UV CLM II Low Migration inks have attracted a loyal following for packaging printers dealing with the ever-changing regulations and guidelines associated with LM indirect food contact. These best-in-class, ITX-free premium UV curable inks take it to the next level with minimal plate swell for all plate making technologies involving flexographic printing.

Printers can expect good adhesion to a variety of substrates, ranging from Prime Label, metalized polyesters and films (PE, PP, OPP and Mylar), to SBS, clay and foil coated papers and boards, and even TYVEK. Beyond superior gloss and transparency, there are plenty of other benefits including maximum pigment load and low pourable viscosity.

Mylex™ II is a water-based lamination ink that gives printers plenty of options and outstanding stability at a wide range of print speeds. It works with solventless, water-based and UV adhesive systems, and produces superb printability up to 800 line aniloxes. Offering superior film adhesion and strength, Mylex inks possess excellent water resistance and lamination bond strength and very low VOC content.

INX International welcomes all Info*Flex visitors to stop by booth 607 to learn more about these and all other flexographic products. The company will have ink experts available to answer any questions.
