Two new SENOFLEX® WB OPAQUE WHITES from WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH

 

Gerhardshofen, 15 November 2018 - WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, has now developed two new opaque white products to provide its offset and flexo printing customers with solutions for the ongoing trend towards low-cost and recycled substrates with non-white surfaces.

 

SENOFLEX® WB OPAQUE WHITE 395800 is an opaque white specially formulated for application via a coating unit in offset printing. Depending on the press configuration, this opaque white can be applied inline in an upstream coating unit or offline via a first press run prior to actual printing. This opaque white has been developed to meet the highest demands and offers excellent opacity and a brilliant white even with a single pass. The degree of whiteness can be controlled by the amount of ink to be applied, depending on the requirements of the design and the substrate used. The increasingly used uncoated, single-coated and open-pored substrates become very good and dot-sharp overprintable due to the flat application of the opaque white.

New Coating Quantity Calculator from WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH

 

Gerhardshofen, September 10, 2018 - WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, a globally renowned manufacturer of coatings, water based flexo inks and adhesives based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, has now put a new coating quantity calculator online.

 

The coating quantity calculator enables the company's customers to calculate the coating quantities required for print jobs quickly and easily using given print job parameters. In addition to the sheet format, the area coverage for coating and the running length, including make ready and expected waste sheets, the anilox rollers used are also considered. The most common anilox rollers with GTT, Hexagonal, Hashur and ART gravures were taken into account. The coating quantity calculator also offers the option of calculating the required coating quantities for straight and perfecting jobs, if these are to be produced with the same coating and the same anilox roller, in just one calculation run. With different coatings and/or anilox rollers for perfecting, the user can also easily calculate these quantities by means of a second calculation run - without having to re-enter all parameters. Only the additional amount of coating required for filling and circulation per print run must be added by the calculator's user, as this varies depending on the system and the peripherals used - such as coating temperature control, for example. However, WEILBURGER Graphics expressly points this out in the coating quantity calculator and also provides users with reference values for different sheet formats.
