Stallion is a range of high colour strength inks formulated for the high speed flexographic and gravure printing of treated polyethylene and co-extruded polypropylene films. These inks will find end uses on rice bags, bread bags and paper wrappings. This system was developed from the Multistar ink system and is higher in pigmentation to obtain higher colour strengths.
