PRINT + PACKAGING

Printing inks and coatings for the print and packaging industry

Colours and surfaces are important and persuasive vehicles when it comes to human perception, as they are noticed immediately. Whether for napkins or high-quality packaging in the food and non-food sector – with our water-based printing inks for flexographic and gravure printing, we not only offer you brilliant colour shades, but also an environmentally friendly and low-consumption alternative to solvent-based inks. Our water-based printing inks are used, for example, in table decoration products such as napkins, tablecloths and placemats or in flexible film and paper packaging.

Scent varnishes, which can, for example, be printed on flyers, postcards, magazine pages and packaging to boost the advertising message and thus increase sales, round off the portfolio.

PACKAGING PRINTING INKS
Water-based printing inks for packaging 

The water-based printing ink systems have been developed specifically
for flexible packaging made of paper and plastic. The ink series are suitable
for flexographic printing and gravure printing on absorbent, uncoated
and coated paper, as well as plastic films such as PE, PP, PET, PA and OPP.
The series are available for frontal and reverse printing for laminated
composite. Also compostable films are printable.

The environmentally friendly formulated colours are smoothly integrateable
into production processes and a significant contribution to ecology
and sustainability.

The colour series are characterised by brilliant colours, excellent dot sharpness,
good adhesion, easy re-emulsification during the printing process,
good consistency and fast drying – also VOC-free.
