DataLase® goes global

Widnes, UK—Sherwood Technology Ltd. (, maker of DataLase® color change chemistry, has signed an agreement with Scipa (Aarberg, Switzerland), a global manufacturer of packaging printing inks, which will allow the Swiss company to make DataLase® branded inks available globally.

Under the agreement the two companies will add significant value through a combination of Scipa's vast experience in ink formulation and manufacture and Sherwood's technical proficiency in laser-responsive color change chemistry.

Steve Kelly, managing director of Sherwood, says, "Scipa has the expertise and knowledge in the ink and printing markets to help make DataLase® available to a wider market. The company has a global commitment to quality, innovation, and added value for the customer and the environment that complements our products perfectly."

DataLase®, a precise, noncontact alternative to traditional printing methods, combines chemistry, substrate conversion, and very low-power laser light for the high-speed date-coding, bar-coding, and graphics industries.
