Fujifilm has added to its existing portfolio of analog flexographic inks with the launch of a new range of LED IDFC (low migration) inks and varnishes. Available in a full spectrum of colors, the new ink set is designed for the label and flexible packaging markets where migration is a key priority, such as food applications, and is fully compatible with a wide range of commonly used label stocks and packaging materials.
Fujifilm’s first-ever range of LED IDFC (low migration) inks has been developed in response to customer feedback to optimize performance and sustainability benefits. The new LED ink enables the transition from conventional UV-cured inks to more sustainable alternatives, without any comprise on quality and efficiency of output.
The launch of Fujifilm’s new LED IDFC inks demonstrates the company’s ongoing commitment to delivering its customers sustainable and cost-efficient solutions that offer best-in-class performance. The company claims that there are no ozone emissions associated with the LED inks, which are cured instantly using LED UV light, slashing energy use to deliver considerable cost and efficiency advantages.
Says Manuel Schrutt, head of packaging, EMEA, said, “The introduction of our latest range of LED IDFC (low migration) inks will help deliver better, faster results for our customers by radically reducing their energy consumption, eliminating harmful ozone emissions, and minimizing maintenance and waste. This results in lower production costs while delivering higher and more consistent quality output.
“The latest addition of the new LED IDFC (low migration) ink series to our product portfolio, now offers our customers even greater choice from Fujifilm, as their ‘one-stop supplier’ of world-class analog and digital solutions.”
