Domino launches ink for food packaging


"UV95 sets a new standard for UV digital inks and their use within non-direct food contact applications," says Louise Adcock.

Domino Digital Printing Solutions has unveiled UV95, its new 7-color food packaging compliant UV digital ink set, at Labelexpo Europe. This product serves as a new ink option available for use with the N610i digital label press.

"UV95 sets a new standard for UV digital inks and their use within non-direct food contact applications. I am delighted to have launched this new non-CMR ink set at Labelexpo," says Louise Adcock, N-Series product manager.

UV95 has been formulated for many non-direct food packaging applications and, under the right conditions, is migration compliant. UV95 is compliant with EuPIA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), with all materials used listed on the Swiss Ordinance for Food Packaging Inks. UV95 has been developed in line with Nestlé's guidance on food packaging inks and is fully compliant with the EuPIA exclusion policy.

The product is a non-CMR ink set and therefore, subject to migration status, can comply with the European Union plastic materials and articles intended to be in contact with food regulation. In addition to compliance, UV95 does not compromise reliability or other mechanical properties, also providing excellent adhesion properties and abrasion resistance.

"Domino is one of the few digital inkjet printer manufacturers with the capabilities to design, develop and manufacture their own range of inks," adds Adcock. "The release of UV95 demonstrates our ability to provide customers with a reliable, robust and compliant ink set."

Domino Digital Printing Solutions has also been hosting daily presentations of the Domino N610i reel to reel label press. Other planned demonstrations have included the Domino N610i hybrid digital label press, K600i digital embellishment including digital printing of varnish and digital cold foiling, and the latest K600i high speed monochrome variable data imprinting.
