Low-migration printing the easy way
Requirements for packaging and packaging producers have grown increasingly tough in recent years, especially in the food industry. The detection of undesirable residues of banned substances in food packaging shakes consumer confi dence and generates uncertainty – and enormous costs in many cases - throughout the entire distribution chain. In a transparent global information environment, the brand in question may suffer irreparable damage.
Low- migration materials can contribute significantly to preventing such damage.
With Böttcher ProColora and ProAqualis, special surface coatings effectively and reliably eliminate the possibility of components of the rubber compounds being extracted by inks or fountain solutions and transferred to the finished product.
Furthermore, the use of distributor rollers with the “Golden Pearl” covering considerably shortens cleaning and make-ready times between jobs, thus significantly and sustainably enhancing the productivity of the printing process.
Böttcher also offers special roller covering compounds which are approved for direct contact with food. Your local Böttcher representative will be glad to help you select the best material for your specific process.
