Sun Chemical plans to showcase a wide range of solutions at the upcoming Fespa exhibition in Berlin, including products developed specifically for digital textile printing. Under the theme ‘Solutions in Motion’ the company will also exhibit products from its wide-format inkjet inks portfolio as well as screen and industrial inks, and its SunJet brand. 

The company, which is based in New Jersey and describes itself as the world’s largest producer of printing inks and pigments, says that it uses the ‘5Rs’ framework as a guide to enhance the sustainability of its technology and product portfolios. The five Rs in question are: Reuse, Reduce, Renew, Recycle and Redesign. Sun Chemical says that this framework, along with continuous investment into research and development to improve the eco-efficiency and sustainability of its inks, coatings and adhesives, enable it to support a circular economy, as well as reducing its footprint.

Pete Saunders, the company’s global director of digital businesses, commented, ‘We are delighted to be returning to Fespa for the first time since 2019, now that global disruption from the pandemic has eased. Fespa is always a key flagship show for us, as the largest producer of printing inks and pigments. We are looking forward to the opportunity to once again showcase our comprehensive portfolio of inks, in person, and discussing with new and existing customers how we can best address their business needs.’
