Our specialty inks and varnishes offer unique features,
from metallics that enhance graphics to security inks.

BCM Inks can advise which specialty inks and varnishes will best serve the corrugated piece you’re printing. 
Our specialty products include:

UV Varnishes

Fast-curing, low-viscosity UV overprint varnishes allow printers to run the press faster, while achieving film lamination-like gloss. They can be tailored for specific requirements, such as alcohol resistance.

Metallics

Metallics enhance graphics on display, promotional pieces or POP packages, providing high brilliance in a variety of shades that do not resemble colors you see in the PMS book.

Pearlescents

These inks offer a faux metallic characteristic when printed on kraft substrates, without the rub-off associated with true metallics.

Secure-a-Flex

This water-based ink or varnish is designed to prevent counterfeiting. These specialized compounds can be printed directly onto corrugated packaging using existing equipment.

Scent-a-Flex™

This patented microencapsulated ink or varnish releases a fragrance when touched. The scent can be generic (i.e., strawberry or chocolate) or specific (i.e., Smucker’s Strawberry or Hershey’s chocolate). Using this ink eliminates the cost of adding a Scratch n’ Stiff sticker.

Conductive Black

This conductive ink eliminates build-up of static electricity. Used on both a box’s exterior and interior, it dissipates static electrical charges that can damage sensitive electronic equipment, parts, and components.

Every ink we make is customized to meet our customers’ needs

Formulating Ink For a Better End Result

Not all ink is created equal. BCM's high-quality water flexo printing inks offer printers more mileage.
In many cases, our products also produce a larger color gamut for graphics.

BCM's products are known in the industry for:

Durability

For rub, scuff, and water resistance, our inks and varnishes can’t be beat, from our line of fast-curing UV varnishes to our plant-based varnishes.

Intensity

Our products have better gloss and color intensity, especially high-strength lines like XTRA inks and varnishes.

Sustainability

We’ve been making environmentally friendly inks and varnishes for decades, with high-performing products like Eekoflex and EekoPlast.

Efficiency

With lines like Superflex, you can minimize plate washing, increasing your productivity.

We seek efficiencies in other ways, too, like our line of inks that’s compliant with G7—a newer method of calibration for which many flexo printers are certified.

Variety

Year after year, we’ve innovated products that improve direct print capabilities.

This includes specialty products like Scent-a-Flex and Secure-a-Flex, as well as high-performing metallics, pearlescents, and other products that fulfill unique needs.

BCM Inks is the partner of choice for the biggest and best brands.
