Marabu launches low-migration screen printing white

Marabu presented a low-migration, silicon-free screen printing white, UVSF 174, at Labelexpo Europe. The premium white is said to have a low migration rate and high opacity, and is aimed at applications for product labels and cosmetics packaging.

The company reports that UVSF 174 attracted great interest from visitors, demonstrating screen printing’s advantages when it comes to opacity and fine detail.

To meet demand for new and flexible UV inkjet inks for digital printing, Marabu exhibited its flexible DUV-H ink series, which is suited to roll-to-roll printing on all common label substrates.

Another talking point at the company's stand was the use of UV LED curable ink systems. Marabu has already developed a technology based on its Ultrapack UVC series, creating a range of screen printing inks for label and container printing. Drawing on its Ultrajet DUV-H series, Marabu has come up with new products for UV LED curable digital printing.

‘We feel that our decisions have been validated: what we’ve gained from this trade show is that there is immense interest in our UV LED curable ink systems. That shows that the products we developed were the right ones,’ said Friedrich Goldner, director of marketing and new business development.
