Domino Launches New Food Packaging Compliant UV-Curable Ink


Domino has launched new UV97BK food packaging compliant black ink for its K600i digital inkjet printer.

Jim Orford, K-Series Product Manager at Domino said, ‘I am pleased to introduce UV97BK, which 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 inkset for use with our N610i digital label press.’

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.

Orford continued, ‘In addition to compliance, UV97BK does not compromise on reliability or other mechanical properties, so it also provides ideal adhesion properties and abrasion resistance. Domino is one of a few digital inkjet 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.’
