Press release date: Oct 24, 2007

Northlake, IL - October 24, 2007 -- Sun Chemical introduced UV TRANS(TM), a new UV ink system that gives screen printers the ability to print transparent windows and eliminate the need for protective masking after printing is completed.

Geared toward the Hi-Tech and Automotive industries, the UV TRANS ink system is designed for either polycarbonate or top-coated polyester graphic overlay windows and provides excellent clarity and printability. Thanks to the use of automotive grade pigments, UV TRANS is extremely durable.

"The UV TRANS ink has outstanding scuff resistance and protects the window after printing," said Curt Baskin, Marketing Manager, Sun Chemical's Specialty Inks Group. "This eliminates the use of protective masking of the windows during transport and takes a major post-processing cost out of the loop---saving manufacturers both money and time."
