Toyo Ink Europe is presenting its new generation of UV flexo inks, including bestsellers like Steraflex and Steraflex Food.

Toyo Ink Europe N.V. (formerly Toyo Ink Arets N.V.) and Toyo Ink Co., Ltd., both members of the Toyo Ink Group, are showcasing their latest innovations for the label and packaging market at their joint stand 11-D50 at Labelexpo Europe. Building on the Group’s developmental concept of “Ethical Packaging Solutions,” the two companies are demonstrating their capabilities and commitment to delivering best-in-class solutions to brand owners and converters. These solutions are designed to ensure food safety and quality, and reduce environmental impact and energy consumption.

As a developer of ultraviolet (UV) and electron beam (EB) curing innovation for the label and packaging markets, the Toyo Ink Group is displaying its full range of printing inks and low-migration technology, with a special focus on food packaging and UV LED applications. Product highlights include an upgraded lineup of UV flexo and UV offset inks, a new series of UV LED offset inks for labels, EB flexo technology, digital solutions and more.

In the area of low migration UV systems, Toyo Ink Europe is presenting its new generation of UV flexo inks, including bestsellers like Steraflex and Steraflex Food for self-adhesive label printing. These inks exhibit radically improved characteristics in terms of their fluidity and speed performance when compared to conventional systems out on the market.

LED continues to make significant strides in the printing market. In contributing to this trend, the Toyo Ink Europe is displaying its latest low-energy UV LED flexo inks—LED Steraflex and LED Steraflex FOOD series—which have been specially designed to meet the demands of high-speed label printing. The company’s next generation line provides highly concentrated systems and is best suited to the needs of high-resolution anilox for optimal graphical output.

Making a strong push into the in-mold label (IML) market, Toyo Ink has introduced new low-migration UV LED offset inks for paper packaging and label printing. These inks cure with very little lamp energy, making them ideal for handling IML applications without damage or shrinkage to the printed substrate.

Toyo Ink Europe is also showcasing a complete portfolio of UV offset inks. The new portfolio exhibits excellent print and press performance, making it suited for most label and narrow web applications, and in-mold labeling.

Other specialty label solutions from Toyo Ink include a new lineup of functional varnishes and specialty screen inks, when combined with its Flash DryFL Kaleido series of UV flexo inks, brings high visual appeal to brand packaging on store shelves.
