Sun Chemical will showcase its broad portfolio of inks, adhesives and coatings for packaging during LatinPack 2018 at Espacio Riesco in Santiago, Chile on June 7-8.

“Our customers are looking for ways to increase productivity, reduce waste and meet brand owner requirements for sustainability, shelf standout and color consistency,” said Fernando Tavara, President, Sun Chemical Latin America. “At LatinPack 2018, Sun Chemical will highlight a variety of innovative solutions that both meet regulatory requirements and are tailor made to meet the specific needs of each individual customer.”

Lamination Adhesives for Major Packaging Applications

SunLam, Adhesives for Packaging

The SunLam family of lamination adhesives consists of water-based, solvent-free and solvent-based products designed to meet the needs of all major packaging applications, including retort lamination for food packages.

With local inventories available everywhere in Latin America along with strong local customer technical service, SunLam has been formulated to complement Sun Chemical’s wide range of lamination inks in the most demanding environments and applications. SunLam lamination adhesives deliver superior adhesion, a fast curing combination of adhesive and hardener to reduce the delay between lamination, slitting and shipping, improved resistance to strongly acidic foods and liquids, suitability for use with both flexographic and rotogravure print processes, and high bond strengths even after package sterilization or boiling.

Converters can also use a SunLam lamination adhesive with oxygen barrier properties to lightweight packaging by removing a film layer while still maintaining the protective functionality required to preserve the contents and avoid migration.

Greener Alternatives to Packaging Materials

To meet current trends moving toward greener living, Sun Chemical will highlight its SunVisto AquaGreen water-based inks at booth #B9a. Formulated with significantly higher levels of bio-renewable sourced resin content compared to other previous market offerings from Sun Chemical, the new water-based inks deliver the required critical performance attributes needed across a range of paper packaging applications to meet the requirements brands have for truly sustainable packaging in quick service supermarkets and restaurants.

Sun Chemical’s renewable inks will be the focus of a presentation to be given by Viviana Sayegh, Technical Director, Packaging, Sun Chemical Latin America entitled “Renewable, Compostable, Eco-Friendly Platform.” The presentation will take place in Room #2 on Friday, June 8, at 12:30 p.m.
