Sun Chemical Warns of Potential Shortages of Photoinitiators Used in Energy Curable Inks

Release date: Friday 11th May 2018


PARSIPPANY, N.J. – 11 May 2018 – Due to a potential shortage of photoinitiators as reported earlier this week by the European Printing Ink Association (EuPIA), Sun Chemical customers that receive energy curable inks could experience product delivery delays in the future.

Governmental initiatives and regulations geared toward environmental protection have led to many suppliers of photoinitiators to either cease or reduce production for limited periods of time. Additionally, the declaration of a force majeure at a variety of manufacturing plants has led to unplanned maintenance and production outages.

“Sun Chemical is working hard to safeguard supply and mitigate the potential shortage of photoinitiators by qualifying new grades and developing new sources,” said Felipe Mellado, Chief Marketing Officer and Board Member, Sun Chemical. “We encourage our customers to call their sales representative if they have any questions or concerns.”
