Sun Chemical has launched a new range of package printing inks that are designed to prevent or dramatically limit migration of chemicals in the ink formula within the barriers of food packaging.
The 2 solutions are UV-curable and conventional sheetfed. Irocart LMQ inks are said to significantly reduce ink migration into packaged foodstuffs when used with an appropriate coating. For use with conventional offset printing and on a wide range of substrates. Based on M-cure™ technology Suncure ULM reduces risk of ink migration and is also free of benzophenone and ITX. M-cure replaces the photoinitiators used in existing UV systems with those that become locked into the cured ink matrix and are unable to migrate.
