Byron Hudghton, managing director at Impact Labels,

Jet Technologies has introduced new food packaging compliant inks in Australia, with Impact Labels the first Australian printing company to use Pulse Roll Label Products’ PureTone Food Packaging Compliant (FPC) inks in the country.

PureTone FPC inks are formulated using raw materials that conform to the latest market regulations and guidelines. PureTone FPC inks comply with the latest European Commission Regulations, Swiss Ordinance, EuPIA guidelines and the Nestle Guidance Note for Manufacture of Packaging inks.

Jet Technologies also supplies FPC coatings to complement PureTone. All core varnishes are provided such as UV flexo FPC, gloss and matte, laminating adhesive, cold foil adhesive and additives. PureTone FPC range is not only exclusive for the food and beverage industry, but also is demanded in other sectors such as tobacco, pharmaceuticals, health and beauty, personal care and household.

Byron Hudghton, managing director at Impact Labels, said: ‘These inks meet the most rigid industry compliance regulations and they are high density, vibrant, and substrate and application versatile, enabling us to look at a diverse range of market segments. We have also invested in a full closed loop color management system including the latest color spectrophotometer and ink formulating software to ensure consistency in our customer’s visual brand management.’

James Montgomery, ink product manager at Jet Technologies, added: ‘We are delighted to work with Impact Labels. Its passion for quality and getting things right first time fits well with our own ethos. It is a winning company and always pushing the boundaries to be at the very cutting edge of technology.

‘The investment made in a color management program demonstrates the company’s commitment to its customers and is testament to the vision of reducing waste, providing the end user with full traceability and getting things right first time.’
