Hamilton Adhesive Labels Switches to PureTone as Part of Drive for Printing Excellence

Bristol, United Kingdom – UK-based speciality label printer Hamilton Adhesive Labels Limited has adopted Pulse Roll Label Products’ PureTone UV flexo ink system to support its measurement and control philosophy and desire to achieve excellence in print.

As a family run printing business and one of the UK’s leading independent converters of self-adhesive labels, Hamilton Adhesive Labels set the goal of delivering a predictive printing system, “right first time”, whilst elevating the print process itself to the highest possible quality level.

The exercise under the heading “measurement and control” was comprehensive. Mono-pigmented inks were tested against traditional systems from other ink companies in both laboratory and press conditions. Anilox technologies were scrutinised and validated against their perceived benefits and plate technologies from all the top suppliers were tested.

Hamilton Adhesive Labels invested heavily in new equipment and scientific tools to support this program and, in terms of inks, PureTone emerged as the successful winner with Pulse Roll Label Products consequently appointed as Hamilton Adhesive Labels’ new ink partner.

Bristol, United Kingdom – Narrow web ink and varnish manufacturer, Pulse Roll Label Products Limited, is excited to launch its new high strength UV flexo ink series, PureTone, on the first day of Labelexpo Europe 2015.

The PureTone range includes a high strength, mono-pigmented mixing ink system, which comprises 9 base colours with the addition of a special Royal blue plus extender. The single pigment formulation of the nine mixing bases makes it much easier to colour match due to the reduced total number of pigments used in the mixed ink. This enables optimised colour strength and cleaner colours to be achieved and also reduces the potential for metamerisation. The high strength formulation allows for lower film weights of ink resulting in reduced inventory and lower ink volume consumption for narrow web printers and provides greater flexibility for printing half-tones and full-tones using just one printing plate.
