Domino Digital Printing Solutions is delighted to announce the launch of UV97BK, a new food packaging compliant UV-curable black ink available for use with Domino’s market leading K600i high resolution digital ink jet printer.
Jim Orford, K-Series Product Manager at Domino says, ‘I am pleased to introduce UV97BK that has been developed in response to customer demand for a non-CMR black ink that can be used for non-direct food packaging applications. This follows on from the successful introduction of a food packaging compliant full colour ink set for use with our N610i digital label press at Labelexpo 2019.’
Under the right conditions, UV97BK is migration compliant. Developed in line with Nestlé’s guidance on food packaging inks and being fully compliant with the EuPIA exclusion policy and EuPIA Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), all materials used are listed on the Swiss Ordinance for Food Packaging Inks. Even more importantly, it is a non-CMR ink and so, subject to migration status, can comply with the European Union plastic materials and articles intended to be in contact with food regulation.
Jim continues, ‘In addition to compliance, UV97BK does not compromise on reliability or other mechanical propertiesso it also provides excellent adhesion properties and abrasion resistance. Domino is one of a few digital ink jet printer manufacturers with the capabilities to design, develop and manufacture our own inks. The release of UV97BK clearly demonstrates our ability to provide customers with a reliable, robust and compliant black ink for non-direct food packaging applications across multiple sectors.’ With over 700 installations worldwide, Domino’s versatile K600i ink jet printer is simple to run and maintain, and offers exceptional productivity and efficiency.
