LumaFlex™ GP 39 Rubine Red is a radiation-curable dispersion of 39% lithol rubine red (Pigment Blue 57:1) in a mixed oligomer system. This high-flow, low viscosity fluid vehicle system has been optimized for use with paper and board, with possible applications with some surface-treated or oxidized films as well. Recommended dosage of LumaFlex™ GP 39 Rubine Red is 45%-65% by weight in a finished ink. LumaFlex™ GP series energy-curable bases feature soft easy-to-handle viscosity with excellent pigmentation levels.
Typically used to make Process Magenta inks, 45% to 65% of LumaFlex GP 39 Rubine Red by total formula weight is considered a normal loading for most liquid flexo & gravure ink formulas. Excellent results for coated and uncoated stock flexographic & gravure ink formulas can be obtained by blending LumaFlex GP dispersions with LumaFlex composite letdown varnish.
