Ultra UV Inks

Key Features

The ULTRA Series is a free radical, UV curing range of inks formulated to have excellent print characteristics, due to its improved strength and transfer properties. These inks contain up to 20% - 30% of materials from a renewable source.

The ULTRA series is recommended for secondary food packaging, where the printed surface of the packaging does not come into contact with the food contact surface.

ULTRA LM series is recommended for primary food packaging where the printed surface of the packaging comes into contact with the food contact surface.

ULTRA UV INKS are suitable for the application on O/S Sheetfed presses and O/S Web presses for the production of high quality work and can be used on the following substrates:

  • Coated and uncoated paper and folding board
  • Corona treated polyethylene coated board
  • Primed foil laminate board
  • Metalised polyester laminated board

The ULTRA Inks have been designed to cure at high speeds (12000 – 18000 sheets per hour - 4 lamps 120 W/cm) the inks exhibit high colour strength,excellent lithographic properties,free flowing characteristics, optimum processing for laser, and laminating etc

The ULTRA range is suitable for food packaging, achieving low odour characteristics, all the inks are formulated using Nestle compliant raw materials and Swiss Ordinance SR 817.023.21 of the FDA on articles and materials Annex 6-Listed.These inks conform to the BCF “Acrylate Preference Criteria” and do not contain ITX and Benzophenone or their derivatives.
