INX Debuts INXShield Line Of Packaging Coatings

INX International Ink Co. has launched the first two products of INXShield, a new line of functional coatings designed for packaging applications. 

Developed over a two-year time period, INXShield is formulated with BioCote antimicrobial technology that protects the coating by inhibiting the growth of odor and staining microbes on its surface, according to the company.

INXShield is validated and quality control tested on a regular basis by an independent testing facility using the ISO 22196:2011 test method. 

INXShield UVF and INXShield GS Slip coatings represent a continuing process of delivering new methods to help brand owners and package converters improve their packaging results, says Shane Bertsch, Vice President of Strategic Planning and innovation at INX.

BioCote technology is formulated into the products to inhibit the growth of microorganisms. The antimicrobial properties do not protect users or others against bacteria, viruses, germs or other disease organisms. But INXShield coatings do support existing cleaning practices to remain fresh and clean while exhibiting improved durability.

INXShield UV Flexo Coating is reportedly suitable for application over dry water-based and cured UV inks. It provides a uniform layer with excellent gloss, slip and general resistance properties. The low viscosity levels reportedly provide rapid flow and leveling on higher speed presses, with minimal dwell time for systems with anilox coaters.
