British Flexo Specialists Partner for a Global Tactile Coating Solution

Narrow web ink specialist Pulse Roll Label Products Ltd launches a new food packaging compliant (FPC) UV flexo rough texture varnish at Labelexpo 2017 in partnership with Sandon Global, Creation Reprographics and Hamilton Adhesive Labels, as part of a joint tactile coating solution aimed at the craft beer label market and other specialised print applications.

The team of British based UV flexo industry experts joined forces to provide a high quality finish for industries that can benefit from incorporating rough texture and tactile effects onto consumer packaging and labelling. The collaboration brings together knowledge and expertise from leaders in the fields of ink, anilox, reprographics, plate making and self-adhesive label printing to provide a complete solution for next generation UV flexo tactile effects and finishing.

Pulse Roll Label Products undertook extensive development work to optimise a rough texture feel and runnability of a tactile varnish at higher speeds. The new product has been formulated for good flow and high rough texture and, in response to customer demands, has been developed to be suitable for non-direct food contact packaging applications.

Gary Seward said, “As a specialist narrow web ink manufacturer we are focused on formulating products that provide optimal print quality and add value for our customers. By working closely with other leading industry experts, we aim to offer a complete solution and we are proud to partner and work with other like-minded British companies who adopt a similar forward thinking approach.”

Mikaela Harding, Product Manager, Pulse Roll Label Products said, “Working closely with Sandon, Creation, and Hamilton Adhesive Labels, we have been able to develop a tactile finishing solution that brings together the latest in ink, anilox, repro, plate and print technologies. When combined with Sandon GMX engraved anilox and Asahi AWP Flexo Plates from Creation, our new FPC rough texture varnish provides an outstanding tactile effect clearly demonstrated on labels printed by our customer Hamilton Adhesive Labels. Each company involved shares a drive for excellence in print and the mission to provide the highest quality labels and packaging to enhance and build brands. This project is an excellent example of how industry collaboration brings together the best of the supply chain to provide an even greater result for both label printers and the brand owners.”
