After successfully introducing SunLit Publish in a number of European countries, Sun Chemical is now extending the availability of its series of premium sheetfed offset process inks to commercial printers throughout the rest of Europe and the world.
Formulated for high-speed printing and high mechanical resistance on a wide variety of paper stocks, SunLit Publish improves both bindery handling and productivity, thereby reducing turnaround time. For the highest quality commercial and publication print work, such as business reports, art catalogues, four-colour books and brochures, SunLit Publish delivers balanced colour reproduction and high print gloss, especially on matt or semi-matt paper that doesn't require a water-based or oil-based coating.
Ensuring natural colours are printed when reproducing human faces, furniture, textiles and luxury articles, such as watches and jewellery, SunLit Publish is fully compliant with ISO 2846-1 (colour and transparency standards) and enables printers to achieve ISO 12647-2 (Process Standard Offset) standard tolerances. As an additional benefit, SunLit Publish also provides perfect grey tonal neutrality (grey balance).
Thanks to the hard-drying characteristics of the ink series, SunLit Publish does not scuff or smear during finishing operations, ensuring that when trimming the bleed, for example, the edges of books and brochures remain uncoloured, even with adjoining dark images.
Dr. Bernhard Fritz, product manager Sheetfed Systems Europe, Sun Chemical, comments, "We've been delighted with the feedback we've received from customers in the countries in which SunLit Publish has been available. It therefore made clear commercial sense to offer the ink series to the rest of our customers across the world, so that they can also enjoy the productivity benefits of using SunLit Publish.
