LIQUIMETAL ® W Waterbased metallic inks for tower coaters
The LIQUIMETAL® W range (waterbased flexo) has been formulated for printing on tower coaters situated at the end of sheetfed presses (or at the beginning). These inks are particularly suited to the printing of labels or high quality packaging requiring a superior metallic brilliance to that obtained with normal offset metallics. This excellent metallic brilliance is attributed to a large extent on the size of the metallic pigments used in flexography. The transfer through the chambered doctor blade, moreover, allows the printing of large solids as well as very fine definition. In conjunction with the LIQUIMETAL® W ink, the anilox should be carefully chosen to ensure the optimum result is achieved.
