During PrintAction Magazine’s recent 3rd Annual Environmental Printing Awards ceremony, Sun Chemical received two awards that recognize its commitment to providing innovative and environmentally-friendly solutions for its customers.
Sun Chemical’s Liberty sheetfed inks were awarded with the gold as the “Most Progressive Environmental Product,” and Sun Chemical received a bronze as the “Most Environmentally Progressive Vendor.” The awards recognize “excellence in Canadian environmental stewardship across the print-based communications supply chain.”
“Progressive means we embrace innovation for our customers, and this award is evidence of Sun Chemical’s leadership in research and development,” said Rod Staveley, President, Canada Business Unit, Sun Chemical. “Liberty Ink is just one example of Sun Chemical’s progressive approach on sustainability. Our R&D operation around the world is working hard for our customers to develop solutions that improve efficiency at the same time that they enhance environmental performance.”
One environmentally-friendly printer, Transcontinental Litho Acme located in Montreal, recently adopted Liberty as its ink of choice. “The Transcontinental Group has invested in a very daring environmental plan of action,” said Eric Bouchard, Plant Manager, Transcontinental Litho Acme. “Liberty inks from Sun Chemical are a really big part of this plan of action.”
Winner of the 2006 PIA/GATF InterTech Technology Award, Liberty ink produces outstanding print quality while reducing waste and dramatically shortening a printer’s production time. Liberty utilizes proprietary chemistry to create inks that offer superb press stability and ultra-fast drying, which together can yield substantial savings for printers.
