UV-based printing inks

Conditioned by our investment in a fully automatic, four-colour screen printing machine and the general changeover to UV inks we have created the conditions that enable us, to print your plastic bottles and thus to present the design of your successful brand image even more attractively.

From now on, we can print highly brilliant designs using UV-based printing inks, which will distinguish your products, setting them off even better from those of your competitors. Printed, partially photo-realistic, images, comprising up to eight individual shades of colour, can be printed excellently in very small rasters and fonts (5pt).

The advantages at a glance of UV inks compared with the classical solvent-based printing inks
  • Very good flexibility of the films
  • Very good adhesion to plastic materials
  • Virtually odourless
  • Excellent wear restistance
  • Very high gloss and good hardness
  • Good resistance to chemicals
  • Good barrier effect
  • Brilliant and high-gloss with the best possible opacity
  • Prepared ready-to-print
  • Quick-hardening
  • Highly water and steam resistant
  • Highly impervious to filling materials

Resistance to usage of the Ultrapack UVC inks

After proper hardening, the ink film possesses excellent resistance to washing and scraping, is highly block resistant and adhesive and demonstrates a strong resistance to solvents (see DIN 16 524), alcohol (Ethanol 96%), finger perspiration and common alkaline and acid filling materials.

UV curable inks protect the environment

UV curable, solvent-free ink is more environmentally friendly to manufacture and use than solvent-based ink. No solvent fumes or VOC emissions are produced during curing and no ozone during LED UV curing. After curing, UV ink is inert: for example, it no longer dissolves in water. This prevents any contamination of ground water. In short, it is an invention that benefits people and the environment.

UV inks "Made in Germany"

Our UV inks are produced in Germany and their constituents will not be listed in the European Chemicals Regulation (REACH) because of it´s toxicological safety. The inks doesn´t include polybrominated biphenyls or diphenyls as well as any lead, chromium, mercury or any compounds of these chemical substances.
