Under the banner of “Packaging Innovation for a Sustainable Future,” Toyo Ink is exhibiting solutions that can help brands and packaging converters make the transition to a more circular economy at interpack 2023.
Kicking off this product portfolio is a new lineup of functional coatings used to replace plastic in paper or film packaging as part of the growing drive toward increased recyclability. The products include oxygen barrier coatings and transparent UV-block coatings that serve as a substitute for aluminum in flexible packaging structures. The products shut out unwanted UV rays that can harm packaged content and help boost the recyclability of the total package.
Toyo Ink also is showcasing an updated line of low-energy, low-VOC ink systems for sensitive packaging and label printing applications. Steraflex™ LED Food is the low-odor, low-migration flexo ink engineered to be food-grade compliant in accordance with Swiss Ordinance.
Also on display at the show are the LP-9000 Toyo Life Premium Food LO/LM series of sheetfed offset inks, which are INGEDE-certified for deinkability and engineered and manufactured in accordance with EuPIA guidelines and Good Manufacturing Practices standards.
