Global Metallic Printing Inks Market: Overview
Metallic printing ink is a type of ink containing metallic particles. Common metals used to manufacture metallic ink include copper, aluminum, bronze, and zinc. Metallic printing inks offer superior brilliance, hiding power, and performance for all printing systems. After printing, when the metallic ink is left to dry, the metallic particles rise to the surface, reflecting light and creating a metallic sheen. Metallic printing inks are suitable for printing on boards, paper, metals (cans) as well as for in-mould applications. They are also used for digital printing. They are used for the metallic effect in digital prints on various substrates and for many applications such as posters & banners, textiles & leather, composite boards, labels, wood, carton & paper, marking & coding, proofing, car wraps, interior decoration, packaging, stickers, etc. These inks are made from high quality raw material using modern technologies. They are acclaimed for high color strength and fast drying properties.
Metallic printing inks provide a shining texture when they are used in offset, gravure, flexo, screen, and digital printing. They are available for oil-, solvent-, water-based, and UV curing systems. Metallic printing inks are also used for food packaging applications. When used in solvent-based systems, they provide a very high gloss level and permit extraordinary effects particularly on synthetic materials. They are especially suitable for wide format printing and proofing systems.
