SunJet, the global inkjet division of Sun Chemical and its parent company, DIC Corporation, has launched EtiJet LM UV, its new low migration UV curing ink range for the digital label market at Labelexpo Americas 2012, on the Sun Chemical booth 5413.
SunJet has developed this new platform inkjet technology suitable for all types of piezo print heads and can demonstrate migration levels of <10ppb in inks cured in air with standard mercury lamps. All of the ink components appear on the European positive lists, Swiss Ordinance and EuPIA and the inks do not use materials specifically excluded in the Nestle list, meaning the inks meet the highest industry standards for food packaging.
‘SunJet's OEM customers are keen to ensure their equipment has the widest appeal to converters in labels and packaging, meaning that they want to offer low migration inkjet technology as an option,’ said Pete Saunders, global business manager digital, SunJet. ‘Utilizing Sun Chemical's extensive knowledge and experience in low migration technology and regulatory compliance, including a certified testing laboratory, we are in a position to support our customers throughout the packaging design and production process. We are excited about the new opportunities this new ink technology can deliver.’
EtiJet LM UV can also be used in non-food applications on standard labelstocks giving the press the maximum operational flexibility possible.
