Printing inks for packaging manufacturer, Siegwerk, will soon showcase its tailor-made ink and services portfolio at the upcoming Labelexpo 2019 event in Brussels, Belgium.
In line with its ‘focused on your needs’ motto, Siegwerk EMEA narrow web business unit vice-president Guido Lander said its solutions address current and future packaging trends.
“By providing a combination of best-in-class performing inks, leading product safety and knowledgeable guidance and support, Siegwerk is always making every effort to help its customers address upcoming trends while meeting their specific needs with cutting-edge ink solutions,” he said.
“At this year’s booth, we will highlight our expertise in trending topics like shrink sleeves, plastic tubes and laminates, digital printing as well as upcoming requirements from brand owners regarding sustainable ink solutions and how Siegwerk’s product portfolio enables an efficient recycling of printed films.”
Specifically, Siegwerk will present a new ink development for the PTL segment, Sicura Nutritube. This is a new low migration ink series for dry offset printing and is designed for extruded (pre-formed) tubes as well as laminated tubes in web printing.
It will also showcase its broad range of UV, LED UV and solvent-based ink systems and special whites for all printing technologies, suitable for sleeves used for non-food and food packaging applications.
In addition, Siegwerk will showcase its inkjet ink portfolio for a wide range of applications including food, pharma as well as household, hygiene and industrial packaging.
As one of the leaders in product safety and sustainability, Siegwerk also aims to drive the development of eco-friendly inks.
During Labelexpo, Siegwerk will present, for the first time, a newly developed product system which allows for complete de-inking of printed films as they are used for labels, shrink sleeves and other applications, leading to a complete recycling of the transparent film in a later process.
With Sicura Low NRGY UV/LED UV, the company offers a newly developed UV/LED UV offset ink system with deinking properties that are comparable to that of conventional oil-based sheetfed offset inks.
With its ink series, Sicura Litho NutriEco Siegwerk also markets what it calls the world’s first low migration UV ink range for cosmetics and food applications that has been awarded the gold status of the Cradle to Cradle Material Health Certification by the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA).
“These inks are safe for recycling processes and adhere to the circular economy approach. These are just a few examples of Siegwerk’s extensive activities to further shape the future of packaging through innovative and sustainable ink solutions that will be presented at the show,” Lander said.
