Energy Sciences Inc (ESI) is a world leader in low energy (up to 300kV) electron beam (EB) systems and solutions. Founded in 1970, ESI pioneered the low-voltage EB market. EB technology is used in flexible packaging, labels and folding carton packaging to cure inks, coatings and laminating adhesives. ESI is the sole, exclusive licensee of GelflexEB central impression (CI) flexographic EB-cured inks. GelflexEB inks require no interstation or end-of-press thermal drying, are safe for food, and reduce VOCs by more than 90 percent.

GelflexEB CI Flexo EB-cured inks are now commercially available and permits wet trapping without interstation hot air drying. Learn about the principles of this new technology including print results, food law compliance, and sustainability benefits, including a 90 percent reduction in solvents and the ability to reverse print (or surface print) on multi-layer mono-material recyclable substrates.
GelflexEB CI flexographic EB-cured inks are ultra-high solids, gel-based inks that are fluid enough for CI (central impression) flexographic printing, but thicken rapidly, providing effective high-speed ink trapping in the wet state. These inks cost less than solvent inks per unit area and enable the shift to recyclable monomaterial substrates.
For more than 60 years, FTA has been enabling flexographers to grow their skills, connect with likeminded individuals, expand their reachable market and drive flexography to package printing dominance.
