Low migration ink systems are almost always required for printing onto food packaging and labels, and strict regulations apply. Siegwerk has been working intensively on the development of low migration inks for many years and can offer the manufacturers of labels and packaging for the food industry a comprehensive range, together with corresponding low migration gloss and matt varnishes as well as metallic inks.
In addition, Siegwerk supplies printers with an important aid for the safe manufacturing of food packaging in the form of its ‘Selection of UV Low Migration Systems’ customer information.
Siegwerk’s best-sellers among the low migration ink systems are the UV flexo series Sicura 39-10 LM (for labels applications) and 39-20 LM. For very demanding applications, the UV offset series Sicura LM 361 (for paper and selected films) and PLAST LM (for plastic substrates) are ideal.
In addiyion, Siegwerk is presenting many of its new developments in the fields of self-adhesive labeling, sleeves and in-mould labeling at the trade fair in Brussels.
