UV coatings for food packaging

Schmid Rhyner offers low-migration coatings that are suitable for food packaging.

The selection of optimal components and the development of special formulations that reduce migration to a minimum are two of Schmid Rhyner’s core competencies. We take particular care in choosing our raw materials.

Schmid Rhyner looks back on many years of experience in surface finishing for food packaging. We offer a range of low-migration products that do not contain benzophenone 4’-methyl benzophenone or bisphenol A.

Schmid Rhyner‘s specific solutions for the food packaging industry ensure that the maximum finishing effects typical of UV coatings can also be achieved in the sensitive food sector:
– High scuff resistance
– High gloss
– Extra mattness
– Tactile effects, i.e. Relief, Soft Touch, 3D

To this end, Schmid Rhyner aims at minimising the migration of substances from the coating film to the packaged goods. This means the coatings must be specially formulated.

WESSCO® LM & EPPI® LM UV coatings for food packaging

WESSCO® LM & EPPI® LM UV coatings are not prone to migration. They are suitable for finishing the outside of food packaging and other types of sensitive packaging and comply with legal requirements and guidelines (GMP).

We offer the following product lines:
– WESSCO® LM UV coatings
– WESSCO® EPPI® LM UV coatings

The coatings can be used in sheet-fed offset, gravure and flexo-printed label applications, and in off-line coating machines.

WESSCO® – UV coatings

Solvent-free, matt and high-gloss varnishes for finishing of printed paper, board and film

The variety of effects to be achieved with UV coatings is unparalleled by other systems. UV coating gives the packaging an incomparable gloss, a special feel and a very stylish appearance. Matt, glossy or relief effects that can be created with UV coatings ensure a high recognition value. They build up confidence in the product and attract more interest at the point of sale, thus stimulating impulse buying.

Technical advantages of UV coatings
UV coating systems cure through a chemical reaction, a chain polymerisation under the influence of ultraviolet light. Curing takes only a few seconds. This gives our customers many advantages.
– A process that saves time and energy
– Immediate converting is possible
– High process speed
– High chemical and mechanical resistance; cured surfaces are impervious to solvent
– Good slip and scuff resistance guarantee trouble-free converting

We offer the following WESSCO® UV product lines:
WESSCO® UV coatings for sheet-fed offset
WESSCO® UV coatings for web offset
WESSCO® UV coatings for flexo-printed labels
WESSCO® UV coatings for coating machines
