The deal outlined Sun Chemical’s role in helping printers achieve Process Standard Offset certification and in meeting international print standard ISO 12647-2.
“Meeting the standard enables printers to streamline internal workflow and produce the highest offset standards,” Fogra managing director Eduard Neufeld said.
“Fogra promotes worldwide use of the ISO; Sun Chemical has a wealth of experience and expertise in offset printing, which will benefit our activities.”
The standard is applied when preparing colour separations for four-colour offset printing or for four-colour prints by heatset web, sheetfed or continuous-forms process.
Both groups agreed to cooperate worldwide, with the exception of German-speaking countries, where Fogra is based and which has existing arrangements in place.
Felipe Mellado, corporate vice president and group managing director for Sun Chemical Europe, said: “Fogra is one of the leading research organisations in the graphic arts industry, and we look forward to adding value to this project.”
