With the energy-cure market constantly evolving, label converters need products that can keep up with their needs and Wikoff Color’s full line of opaque white inks do just that. From Nestlé compliant UV to Nitrogen-inertion shrink to rotary screen, Wikoff Color has an opaque white for every application. In addition to the standard opaque white product list, the corporate R&D team offers custom formulation capabilities for specific requirements.

Using opaque whites to back up process and Pantone® colors on films and dark substrates can boost color densities from dull and lackluster to a vivid, bright color match. Opaque whites are especially helpful in shrink sleeve applications where reverse printing can benefit from an opaque white background to enhance color density. These inks also provide a great base for surface print as they have strong adhesion properties, opening the door for graphic designers and brand owners
to utilize special effect products on different materials.

“Our R&D center has come up with an impressive list of opaque whites for the label market, especially the LED-cure and shrink sleeve formulas,” comments Mark Lewis, Label Market Manager for Wikoff Color. “Our customers have been highly satisfied with the performance of these products, both on press and on the shelf.”
