Epple want to create awareness, across the entire branch, of the benefits of low migration and migration harmless ink systems. Packaging printers in many countries have almost completely converted their processes to low migration inks and are complying with, alongside the statutory regulations, the most important technical requirements for foodstuff packaging: low odor, low swelling and low migration properties.
With this experience, Jaroslaw Wozny, application technician and regional sales representative for Poland at Epple Druckfarben AG, presented the migration harmless BoFood ink system for foodstuff packaging printing. The high proportion of artificial fatty acid esters as the basis for conventional offset printing inks encouraged the visitors to reflect on the creative possibilities of the BoFood ink series for packaging printing.
The ink series comprises a comprehensive package of migration harmless, coordinated Epple printing inks, for both outer and inner side printing of foodstuff primary packaging as well as a corresponding effect finish.
“Even though low migration printing is not yet a major focus point in every market, printers increasingly want to know more about the products which can be implemented on its basis. The companies are preparing themselves for the future,” said Helmut Fröhlich, product manager packaging at Epple.
The topic included the economic and technological development of the Ukrainian printing market with the focus on the packaging printing industry. The participants could find out more about packaging production in digital, flexo or offset printing, depending on their interests.
