Printing inks (Packaging materials, containers, cloth, etc.)

Outline

First impressions (being eye-catching) are critical for printed items. Using metallic printing changes the impression given by the printed item and produces a sense of high quality. High-gloss Alpaste® gives a three-dimensional metallic feel to packaging materials, containers for items such as drinks and cosmetics and to cloth and raises their value. Leafing Alpaste® floats to the top of the printing ink and exhibits strong reflection properties.

The various methods of printing include screen printing (stencil printing), gravure printing (intaglio printing), offset printing (lithography), flexography (relief printing) and thermal transfer printing. Toyo Aluminium K.K. has a range of aluminium pigments suitable for each of these printing methods and we can respond to consultations from customers with proposals of the optimum products and printing methods.

The "TD Series (for printing inks)" is a product with the mineral spirit normally used in aluminium paste eliminated and completely replaced with other solvents. The replacement solvents include toluene and the environmentally friendly propyl acetate and ethyl acetate. The TD Series is odorless, so it can be used without concern for applications such as food containers.

Use Resin coated Alpaste® if adhesiveness is a requirement for the printed matter.

To customers considering colorful metallic ink, we recommend Colored Alpaste® and Interference color aluminium pigments.

We also supply Electrically conductive filler for functional inks such as electrically conductive inks.
