“It’s always our goal to provide customers with the best and most efficient solution and support for their individual situation. We are always ‘Focused on your needs’ and are exactly analyzing the requirements and needs every single customer has,” explains Michael Mueller-Samson, head of BU Narrow Web EMEA at Siegwerk. “That’s why platforms like Labelexpo are ideal touchpoints for us to share ideas and discuss newest challenges and requirements with our customers and other industry experts.”
The company has launched several ink solutions that were developed to help customers keep track of future-focused industry trends. It offers a complete range of migration optimized inks, gloss and matte varnishes, as well as metallic inks for all printing processes that are BPA-free and meet the needs of food and other sensitive packaging applications. The company’s migration optimized inks specifically for UV printing rank among the best systems on the market today, the company says.
“Our newest developed ink series for UV flexo printing is called Sicura Nutriflex PRO. It offers highly pigmented colors that are HD-certified while being suitable for all food and pharma-related applications,” explains Rolf Montag, product manager BU Narrow Web at Siegwerk. “Furthermore, our UV offset series Sicura Nutriboard 2 for paper and selected films, as well as Sicura Nutriplast 2 for plastics are both excellent ink solutions for heavy-duty applications.“
Siegwerk is also showcasing the latest developments of metallic inks and different OPVs of its Sicura Nutriflex LEDTec range. “We also develop high-quality inkjet inks for labels and are working on some for packaging applications too,” adds Montag. "With Sicura Nutri Jet UV-Inkjet, Siegwerk provides a low migration inkjet ink series for food and pharma packaging that works with different inkjet printing head technologies and delivers the same CMYK color positioning as flexo inks. With Sicura Jet low-odor the company also adds the only non-CMR UV-inkjet inks that are designed for printing labels for household, hygiene and industrial packaging to its offering."
With the latest launch of the low migration UV offset ink range Sicura Litho NutriEco, Siegwerk once again demonstrated its value in terms of product safety and sustainability. This UV printing ink system was shortly awarded Gold status of the “Cradle to Cradle Material Health Certification” by the Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency (EPEA).
