LUNA, AURA and AURA LED formulations offer converters a degree of future proofing in today's market of constantly changing regulations
Despite a turbulent year for ink manufacturers, Paragon Inks has launched new UV and LED inks and coatings for label and packaging applications by introducing its LUNA, AURA and AURA LED ranges.
The company has turned the chaos of plant closures and prince hikes, substance reclassifications and exclusions into a positive for business and embraced the new rule book. The LUNA, AURA and AURA LED ranges offer the printer and up-stream supply chain a pre-emptive solution in the current unstable conditions within the print and packaging markets.
'The new products have been designed to combine the major requirements of press and print performance, colour strength, fluidity, stability, quality, and value for money in today's and future markets. Manufactured using GMP and state-of-the-art dispersion techniques, they conform to exacting quality standards,' commented Amanda Jones, business development and marketing director.
The Pantone digital library is the foundation for these ranges, giving a greater consistency and accuracy to the bespoke mixing guides and crossover between ranges, utilising the latest technology to create a perfect platform for digital colour synergy.
The LUNA range is a core UV flexo system for all label and packaging applications that do not require inks and coatings to comply with indirect food packaging guidelines. The AURA range is a dedicated UV flexo low migration system, for all label and packaging applications that require inks and coatings to comply with indirect food packaging guidelines. Finally, the AURA LED range is a bespoke flexo system of low migration inks and coatings that are cured by the latest LED/UV technology.
