Water-based printing inks

Printing inks for flexible packaging

The water-based gravure and flexo printing inks were specially developed for flexible packaging made of plastic and aluminium - both for surface printing as well as for subsequent lamination. They are suitable for a wide range of packaging types, such as packaging for food or pet food, beverage labels, shrink sleeves, aluminium lids or hygiene products. The environmentally friendly formulated inks are smoothly integrateable into production processes and make an important contribution to sustainability. Brilliant colours, excellent printability in screen and surface as well as good machine running properties, high mechanical resistance and fast drying. They also fulfill the required authenticity properties and regulatory requirements, also for printing of compostable substrates.
