Actega introduces ACTExact SafeShield UV-LED inks

Actega has unveiled a new line of ACTExact SafeShield UV-LED low migration inks

Actega has unveiled a new line of ACTExact SafeShield UV-LED low migration inks, the most extensively certified ink product line from ACTEGA to date, developed for use in low migration applications such as indirect food contact, cosmetics and nutraceutical packaging.

Drawing on Actega’s regulatory expertise, the ACTExact SafeShield UV-LED inks have been formulated with stringent protocols in place, meeting a comprehensive list of global and regional regulatory requirements, including Swiss Ordinance Annex 6 A & B listed raw materials, Nestlé 2018 Exclusion List Compliance, EUPIA Exclusion List Compliant, No ECHA SVHC (Substances of Very High Concern), CONEG/ TPCH (No lead, mercury, cadmium or hexavalent chromium), TSCA and REACH Compliant and FDA Migration Models.

The meticulous testing of the SafeShield product range includes external migration validation, conducted by the industry leading food innovation laboratory. Internal and external migration validation was also carried out to confirm the inks’ suitability of use related to regulatory requirements. 

‘One of our key objectives at Actega is to offer products that not only put consumer safety at the forefront but enable our customers to confidently adhere to a very complex and rigorous regulatory process established for the labels and packaging industry,’ commented Mell C. Bishop III, global market manager for labels at Actega. ‘By developing products that meet numerous exacting regulations, on a global scale, we aim to take some of the stress out of packaging production, allowing our customers to spend more of their time on what they do best – delivering high-quality labels and packaging that meet brands’ high expectations.

‘The SafeShield range has been tested thoroughly by external parties and our own teams and as such, meets the most regulatory requirements of any of our products to date. We’re excited to be able to present this new product line to the market at Labelexpo Americas and encourage visitors to the show to come to our stand and discover the full range and numerous application possibilities.’
