Safe printing – safe packaging with WEILBURGER Graphics at drupa 2012

Gerhardshofen, 27. April 2012 – Also this year, WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH is present as exhibitor in Düsseldorf during drupa and informs its customers and prospective clients about its wide-ranging product portfolio of varnishes, adhesives and inks.

Besides the very high-quality of the products, the safe packaging in the food industry is one of the key issues during the trade fair. WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH has recently re-catalogued its complete range of products and re-evaluated it in terms of its food conformity in accordance with current statutory requirements and the recommendations issued by the key testing institutes and certifying bodies FABES and ISEGA as well as by the Swiss Commodities Act SR 817.023.21.

In its recently published product manual, WEILBURGER Graphics presents its reworked product class list and provides its customers and other interested parties with comprehensive information on the application options of the individual product classes in direct and indirect contact with food in accordance with current statutory provisions as well as with more detailed information on the subject and related areas.

Printed samples has been elaborated in the form of beverage packaging (Club Mate and Club Mate Cola) together with STI Group and brewery Loscher and a highly refined food conform folding box with rlc l packaging, Marbach and Sappi.

Furthermore, the novel chip off effect coating is presented during the trade fair which was developed with Merck KGaA and Model-Kramp GmbH.

The chip off effect coating is a two component finishing which can be applied by a printing press with one coating unit with UV drying.
This innovative effect is based on different surface tensions of the two lacquers and generates an optical and haptical 3D structure.

For quite some time WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH also offers under the product class SENOFLEX® a co-ordinated ink and coating series for this market. It resulted from the specific requirements for special formulations for these products from the customers

  • Optimized discharging properties
for an excellent ink transfer to the plate/printing substrate while at the same time reduced adding of the anilox roller in regard to the cleaning intervals

  • High concentrated ink series
low dot gain, constant vignetted screen tints, good drying characteristics for an excellent printing

And coating quality through:
  • Optimized penetration performance
