PARSIPPANY, N.J., U.S.A. -- Sun Chemical and its parent company, DIC, will showcase a full range of offset inks, magnetic tapes, adhesives, and varnishes for credit and laminated cards during CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS AMERICA.(May 5-7, 2015). Visitors will be introduced to technologies designed to optimize the manufacture of laminated plastic cards, such as DIC’s specialty magnetic tape and Sun Chemical’s SunCarte® product line, including the new UV screen inks and UV plastic card inks.

Sun Chemical Screen and Offset Inks Specially Formulated for Adhesion to Plastic Cards
Sun Chemical’s SunCarte family of screen and offset inks, adhesives, and varnishes offer high bond strength and adherence to lamination while also providing consistent color reproduction. SunCarte can also be customized to deliver various metallic finishes. The line is easy to use and provides excellent adhesion to common plastics, helping printers meet the needs of the plastic card market.

The SunCarte product line includes new UV screen inks offering a variety of finishing options for use on plastic cards. SunCarte UVPC Opaque White ink was specially designed to work on colored PVC core material, while SunCarte UVPC-Clear ink can be used to provide pearl, silver, gold and special effect color finishes. UVPC-Clear also offers adhesive properties as the ultra-thin cured ink film minimizes the buildup profile. SunCarte also includes an Offset UV Plastic Card ink series designed exclusively for use on plastic cards. Compatible with a wide range of plastics, SunCarte Offset UV Plastic Card inks offer high bond strength, excellent printability and heat resistant colors. The plastic card inks can also be used with the Sun Chemical Dispenser Program’s MX12 ink dispensers.
