New PureAqua Water-Based Flexo Ink System to be Unveiled at Labelexpo

Pulse Roll Label Products is to unveil its new high strength PureAqua water-based flexo ink system at Labelexpo 2017.

Designed for narrow web printing of self-adhesive labels and suitable for use on many substrates including coated and uncoated papers, thermal papers and films, the new PureAqua ink system comprises a 4 colour process set and mixing bases. The high strength water-based formulations provide optimal print performance, press stability and offer excellent colour strength, viscosity and flow.

Building on the concept of offering a total colour management solution, a PureAqua colour matching database, using X-Rite’s InkFormulation Software (IFS), has been created for the new water-based ink system to provide accurate colour matching. Cost savings can also be achieved by using pre-press proofing equipment from RK PrintCoat Instruments to reduce production downtime and minimise waste on press. The company’s existing water-based flexo metallic inks are also included in the new PureAqua product portfolio.

Mikaela Harding, Product Manager, Pulse Roll Label Products said, “We are excited to launch our new PureAqua water-based ink system and delighted to offer our customers a single system that is suitable for use across multiple substrates. We understand the need for colour consistency on a global scale and the value of digital colour management as proved with our PureTone UV flexo ink system. Along with our existing water-based varnishes, primer and additives, PureAqua provides a complete water-based flexo solution for narrow web label printers.”
