Domino launches food packaging compliant ink

Domino Digital Printing Solutions has launched UV97BK food packaging compliant UV-curable black ink available for use with Domino’s K600i high resolution digital ink jet printer.

‘I am pleased to introduce UV97BK that has been developed in response to customer demand for a non-CMR black ink that can be used for non-direct food packaging applications,’ said Jim Orford, K-Series product manager at Domino. ‘This follows on from the successful introduction of a food packaging compliant full color ink set for use with our N610i digital label press at Labelexpo Europe 2019.’

Under the right conditions, UV97BK is migration compliant. It has been developed in line with Nestlé’s guidance on food packaging inks and being fully compliant with the EuPIA exclusion policy and EuPIA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). All materials used are listed on the Swiss Ordinance for Food Packaging Inks. Moreover, as a non-CMR ink, it can comply with the European Union plastic materials and articles intended to be in contact with food regulation.

‘In addition to compliance, UV97BK does not compromise on reliability or other mechanical properties, so it also provides excellent adhesion properties and abrasion resistance. Domino is one of a few digital ink jet printer manufacturers with the capabilities to design, develop and manufacture our own inks. The release of UV97BK clearly demonstrates our ability to provide customers with a reliable, robust and compliant black ink for non-direct food packaging applications across multiple sectors,’ concluded Orford.
