ECS Newsletter - January 2010

Hello and welcome to the first ECS newsletter of 2010. It has been a busy start to the year here at ECS. We have already taken delivery and installed a new mixing vessel and mixer capable of mixing product up to volumes of 15,000kg. This, along with our current equipment will help maintain the high level of quality associated with ECS as well as ensure we stay as efficient as possible. With the addition of this vessel our mixing capability has grown to over 45 ton at any one time.

Our Managing Director, Neil Fletcher has also had a busy start to the year. Neil has been out to Dubai visiting a number of agents and introducing them to the new developments offered by our resourceful technical team.

Thankyou to all the distributors who took the time to meet with Neil.

Over the course of the next few weeks the ECS website ( is undergoing reconstruction. When re launched the new website will offer updated product information, quick links to the staff at ECS as well as a host of additional information.

Further developments within ECS are the new and revised product literature guides. These are focused more to help our customers gain a greater understanding to the products on offer. These will be available for down load via the new website.

There are also plans to revise the format of the ever popular ECS newsletter. These will be in place by the end of the first quarter. If there is information you want to see within the newsletter please contact the team at ECS via or

With the recent appointment of a new distributor within mainland Europe the technical team set its sights upon formulating a high specification set of narrow web UV flexo varnishes to suit this customer’s requirement. Having successfully aided our distributor in converting the offset business to the ECS product range the narrow web market was demanding such products from them and us.

The range of products focused upon a high cure, non yellowing Benzophenone free system. Products on offer are:

  • U645 - High Gloss General purpose UV Flexo Varnish
  • U644 - High Gloss Foil Blockable UV Flexo Varnish
  • U646 - Thermal Overprint Gloss Varnish
  • U647 - Thermal Paper Varnish
  • U649 - Dry Peel Gloss UV Varnish

Along with this core range of products we have found the narrow web market demand both letterpress and silk screen UV varnishes which can be supplied by ECS.

For further information or any advice on the above topics or other products in our range please contact the sales office on +44 (0) 1623 720444 or email us at
