Laser technology links special inks

In a non exclusive license agreement, the Siegwerk Group will market a new range of inks produced using Sherwood Technology’s patented DataLase colour-change chemistry. DataLase combines chemistry, substrate conversion and low power laser light for the high speed printing of images. Siegwerk will use the DataLase concentrate specifically for patch printing, enabling it to provide its global customers with a total printing solution.

Ralf Hildenbrand, president of the Siegwerk Business Unit Packaging Europe, comments: “The addition of DataLase to our existing ink technology will allow us to offer a complete marking solution to all of our clients.”

DataLase is said to be a precise, non contact alternative to traditional printing methods for date coding, bar coding and graphics. It can be used for metal decoration, flexible packaging, paper, board and plastics.
