UV offset ink “ends uncertainty” when printing food packaging

Hubergroup says that with its NewV pack MGA low migration UV sheet-feed offset ink, unlike other products, migration is limited even if the ink is not fully cured. This guarantees reliable food packaging printing even if the UV lamps are no longer emitting energy at their full capacity, the company affirms.

Hubergroup has developed this new ink in response to strict legislation stating that food packaging may not contain substances that could transfer onto foodstuff beyond defined limit values.

“The new UV offset inks reliably stay below the thresholds,” explains Thomas Glaser, product manager for NewV. “This gives printing companies and food producers the best peace of mind they’ll find anywhere on the market right now. We are also the first ink manufacturer in the world to provide this assurance for UV products in the form of a written guarantee.”

Provided good manufacturing practice is followed in packaging production, Hubergroup guarantees that no substances beyond the applicable limit values can be transferred from the packaging’s ink to the foodstuff inside.

The NewV pack MGA inks are designed specially for printing food packaging and satisfy Framework Regulation (EC) No. 1953/2004 and the Swiss Ordinance on Materials and Articles in Contact with Food SR 817.023.21.
