The range of products in Spink’s kitty support diverse applications. This includes low migration flexo inks for food packaging applications; high lustre metallic inks for narrow web flexo that can replace foiling; special effect varnishes for flexo and screen printing.
According to Jha, Spinks caters to more than 40 label printers in India with key customers being ITW-Wintek, Letra Graphics among others. “While we have a 60% market share in screen printing, we cover 15-20% of flexo industry,” added Jha.
Recently, Spinks has introduced UV dry offset inks  for printing directly on lamitubes and seamless plastic tubes, plastic cups and containers. Jha added, “Our primary target for this product is the cup and container market. The dry offset printing directly on the container can replace the need of inmould labels. Though the initial investment for dry offset technology is high, the cost per container sums up to be cheaper as compared to inmould labels.”
