SunJet, the global inkjet division of Sun Chemical and its parent company, DIC Corporation, has announced the introduction of Low Migration UV inkjet inks for the non-food contact side of primary food packaging.
SunJet LM inkjet complies with the required components listed in Annex 6 of the Swiss Ordinance, Nestlé standards on materials in contact with food and Nestlé Guidance note on packaging inks. This low migration inkjet technology has also been designed so that it can be utilized on a wide range of media such as PP and PE in the label sector, foil for food and pharma applications, and heat sensitive films for shrink sleeves, including an opaque white allowing for the use of clear substrates.
SunJet, as part of Sun Chemical, is an active member of EuPIA and has formulated and manufactured this technology in accordance with their guidelines and the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).
The new SunJet LM ink technology is being showcased for the first time on the Durst Tau 330 at Labelexpo, at the Durst stand 9H57 in Hall 9.
SunJet is exhibiting examples of the LM ink chemistry printed and available to view on Sun Chemical's stand 5E80, Hall 5.
