The water-based and energy-curable inks being used by Polytex are currently being integrated with new products such as 7.4295, a new flexo primer for use with UV-curable inkjet printers. According to the company, this new Polytex product provides a solid foundation for sharp, product-resistant printing, and 7.4295 can be applied to many conventional substrates to control costs. The product is a water-based, flexo-applied primer suitable for UV inkjet printing. It can also run on gravure or rod coaters, and will perform well on BOPP paper and other substrates designed for flexo printing. A 4-6 BCM anilox roller is recommended for most applications. 7.4295 dries fast but does not harden up on anilox rollers or tint sleeves if left idle for a few minutes. It is resoluble and washes up easily with mild anilox cleaners. The primer cures to a neutral finish and is suitable for printing on clear substrates. It will not dull or haze clear film.
