Autumn 2016 is marking the beginning of a new era for Sensient with the announcement of Sensijet® SX, a platform of innovative water-based inks formulated to provide best application performance on industrial and graphics materials.
The inks developed under the Sensijet ® SX platform are based on components selected carefully to offer adhesion onto non-porous substrates without use of any volatile component or substance causing concern in regulated applications (food packaging, skin contact items, etc.). Solutions are developed jointly with selected partners to satisfy the requirements of many an application, adjusting parameters such as adhesion, flexibility, delamination, fastness, etc. for use with most printing equipments operating a piezo printhead. The technology can also offer superior performance on semi-porous substrates.
The result of such a collaboration will be presented at Inprint 2016, Milan, from November 15 to 17: The Aqua series of printers developed by Engico enables box-makers, commercial printers and POS professionals to print and deliver just-in-time and 1:1 cardboard boxes. The combination with inks developed specifically by Sensient under their Sensijet® SX technology offers easy processing and printing of Packaging and POS material for Indoor and Outdoor Applications. For this solution, inks can be applied directly onto the cardboard material, not requiring any pre-coating. The ink layer maintains its full integrity and properties upon folding or forming of the box.
