Sun Chemical receives InterTech Technology Award for low migration ink product line
Sun Chemical has been awarded an InterTech Technology Award – one of the highest honours in the printing industry – for its SunPak LMQ (low migration quality) products. Awarded annually by the Printing Industries of America, the award recognises the development of innovative technologies that are predicted to have a significant impact on the graphic arts and related industries.
SunPak LMQ products help address the risk brand owners face in packaging where compounds from materials in the packaging structure can migrate into the food product or the surrounding environment. SunPak LMQ inks exhibit very low odour, off-flavour and migration levels and offer a comprehensive solution to brand owners and converters who are looking for ways to address migration concerns for food, pharmaceutical and tobacco applications.
The Sun Chemical solution combines chemistry, press preparation procedures, lithographic guidance and analytical support to help converters meet the most demanding requirements.
“We are thrilled that SunPak LMQ inks have been recognised with the InterTech Technology Award,” says chief marketing officer Felipe Mellado. “The issue of low migration and food safety will only continue to grow in importance and Sun Chemical is committed to helping customers make that transition to ensure they comply with regulations and food safety requirements now and in the future.”
