hubergroup  has announced the launch of new UV ink system, under the brand name “NewV poly MGA” at this year’s UV DAYS event complies with the “EuPIA Guideline on Printing Inks applied to the Non-Food-Contact Surface of Food Packaging Materials and Articles”. The cured ink film contains only components that do not migrate or migration-capable constituents that have been evaluated for contact with foodstuffs.
“More and more printing houses and packers are now taking advantage of the benefits offered by the UV process”, says Roland Schröder, product manager UV Offset at hubergroup. “Rapid curing, rub resistance and excellent gloss are characteristics that are also valued highly by manufacturers of branded food products sold in primary packaging. However, until now it has been difficult to obtain top-quality print results on non-absorbent substrates that also comply with the stringent rules regarding food safety. Our new ink series fills this gap.”
Another innovation being launched is all UV inks, both for the non-food and the food segments, will from now on be formulated as systems completely independent of the roller material.
