UV/EB inks, coatings and adhesives

Wednesday, 12 August 2009

As the legislation on Food Contact and Food Packaging develops it is likely that the demands on the ink makers and resin manufacturers to supply compliant products will intensify. To meet thesedemands there has to be a greater understanding of the chemistries involved and the potential to migrate.

UV and EB curing inks continue to develop in the prestigious food packaging market.

UV and EB curing inks continue to develop in the prestigious food packaging market.

The use of UV and EB curing inks is growing in the European Graphic Arts market. Not only do they give excellent print quality but they are also solvent free, a huge benefit in this environmentally driven world. One particular application where UV and EB curing inks continue to develop is in the prestigious food packaging market. In order to sustain the growth the subject of low migratable species within UV and EB curing inks has had to be addressed. C. Roqueta, F. Foumier, I. Hutchinson, H.Dulongpont and H. Cavalie outline in a talk at the RadTech Europe 2009 progress within the analytical ascpects of low migratavel UV and EC curing inks. They identify in Europe two driving forces: 1. The voluntary agreement within the Printing Inks manufactueres group to comply with the Framework Regulation on food packaging. 2. The ever increasing consumer demands for safer products. To meet these demands there has to be a greater understanding of the chemistries involved and the potential to migrate. This paper demonstrates that, by continually developing and upgrading analytical techniques, increased understanding and measurement of the potential of UV curable materials to migrate is possible. These analytical techniques thus form the cornerstone of any future product development for this exacting application.
