Sun Chemical's Streamline wide-format series will be taking pride of place

Sun Chemical is displaying its wide variety of inks at Amsterdam’s Fespa wide-format print show, including several inks that are new for 2024.

The ink manufacturer’s Streamline range of eco-solvent inkjet inks for wide-format printers take pride of place on its Hall 5, Stand G41 stall at the show at the RAI, Amsterdam from 19-22 March.

Two new updates to the Streamline range – the ESL 2 and Ultima inks – are on show. The two inksets have been reformulated for compatibility with Epson i3200 and Brother printheads used in new-generation eco-solvent printers.

Streamline’s aqueous inks for Kyocera and Ricoh Gen 5 printheads, as well as tailored inks for Konica Minolta and Spectra Starfire printheads, are also be on display, alongside its Streamline SGR solvent ink series for Ricoh Gen5 printheads.

New at Fespa 2024 is Sun's new ink range for direct-to-film (DTF), the Xennia Jade DTF inkset. Aimed at the growing DTF market, it is designed for a more pronounced opacity of white inks and thus colour vibrancy in brighter tones.

Pete Saunders, global director of digital businesses at Sun Chemical, said: “Fespa Global Print Expo has remained the ultimate flagship show for the wide-format industry for decades. 

“The continued significance of the event means that as the largest producer of inks and coatings, we’re delighted to be exhibiting once again and we look forward to connecting with existing and new customers and showcase how they can experience transformation.

“Sustainability remains a key focus for us and our customers. We are dedicated to experiencing transformation, and part of that is becoming more sustainable, as we continue to enable our customers to enhance their businesses while remaining as eco-conscious as possible.”

Joining the Streamline range will be inks and materials from across Sun Chemical’s portfolio, including its Separel degassing modules, digital textile inks, and screen and pad printing inks.

Sun Chemical’s full digital textile ink range is also on display, with the Xennia Jade DTF also joined by ElvaJet sublimation transfer inks and Xennia Sapphire pigment inks and Xennia Amethyst Evo RC reactive inks.

The firm’s inkjet offshoot SunJet, developed with parent company DIC, is also on Sun Chemical’s stand.
