In Paris it was mainly printing inks for cigarette packaging, including folding boxes, film wrapping, cardboard etc. that attracted the attention of the expert public.
The product highlights displayed included RUCO’s water-based W-T and WD-T series, which can be used both in gravure and flexographic printing. The scratch- and rub-resistant inks are free from organic solvents and offer high color strength and brilliance as well as high resistance to adhesive tapes. While W-T inks are suitable for coated and uncoated paper and cardboard, the WD-T series has been designed specifically for use on PE/PP films.
The solvent-based N-T and VTS series are also suitable both for gravure and flexographic printing. They are resistant to adhesive tape as well as scratch- and rub-resistant and can be used for high-speed decoration of PE/PP film packaging. In addition, N-T inks can also be printed on paper, special paper and cardboard.
