Brilliance in offset products?

Metallic inks for tower coating units ensures the brilliance of an offset print product similar to a metallized cardboard.

Metallic Ink for Tower Coating Unit Header Salad Seasoning

ECKART offers premium metallic ink solutions for ink makers.

Our UV silver ink ULTRASTAR UV FPG 78240 is brilliant and offers shelf appeal for prints that require indirect food contact (based on European regulations).

For print jobs that do not require European indirect food standards ULTRASTAR UV FP 8220 shows same press performance.

Additionally, it is easy to print, when the press includes a coater unit at the frontside or two at the end of the offset press.

Metallic products for coater units are handled like an overprint varnish.

Formulated by ECKART with metallic pigment pastes, they are stabilized for UV curing.

This combination achieves higher luster when compared to conventional PANTONE® 877 offset inks.
