UV Free Radical

A comprehensive range of products suitable for both general purpose printing of filmic & paper substrates and ranges for heat shrinkable filmic applications.

INKS – A full range of colours are available including high opacity whites, metallics & fluorescents. The colours can be supplied either as ‘single-pigment’ bases, standard or high strength for in-house blending or as pre-matched colours.

The high strength base range gives printers the maximum flexibility to match pantone colours using lower volume anilox volumes. Other ‘special’ products are available on request, for example iridescent, pearlescent and invisible fluorescent colours.

LACQUERS – Very high gloss & matt finishes available (with or without an optical brightener) for high slip, foil blockable, ‘peel & read’, & adhesive deadening applications. Lacquers are also suitable for overprinting Mirages’ water based ‘Glacier’ label inks.

ADHESIVES – Cold foiling, laminating and pressure sensitive adhesives available.

PRINTING APPLICATIONS – Flexible packaging, shrink sleeves, labels (filmic and paper), industrial applications.
