Printing directly onto food
We produce a range of fast drying, odour-free, self-disinfecting inks for direct food printing, designed and approved to meet individual regulations for a wide variety of countries currently including Spain, Ireland, France, UK, Germany and Halal safe fluids for a selection of middle-eastern states. They are available in a continually expanding range colours that ensure legibility and exceptional contrast and are ideal as egg printing ink, meat stamp ink, confectionary, bread and much more.
Flexible plastics and film based packaging
A wide range of inks suitable for food packaging bags, cups, pouches, trays, shrink wrap, PET and films designed to be fast-drying, abrasion resistant and remain legible when flexed. Our products include DOD and CIJ inks designed for use in non-contact & thermal transfer printers, with different viscosities and properties to meet the task at hand, perfect for high volume manufacturing environments.
Food & Drinks Cans
Designed for soups, vegetables, sauces and drinks in aluminium and tin-free steel cans, our range of metal adhesion inks provide consistently clear coding. We produce a range of “off-the-shelf” inks designed for use with most printer brands and models in this sector, further to this you will find an expansive range of thermochromic inks (these change colour when cans have been steam sterilised).
Glass Bottle Inks
As a global provider to many companies in this industry, you will find our inks to be highly effective, possess outstanding contrast and have superior adhesion on wet glass compared to most other brands. Our range is extensive with everything from white inks for darker backgrounds to removable inks for returnable bottles to exceptional invisible inks (nude) for traceability (only visible under UV) in a very diverse spectrum of colours.
Corrugated Cases and cartons
With inks that which have excellent adhesion on even the most laminated of surfaces, our range provide excellent contrast and flexibility of application. We develop and produce fluids designed for high-resolution, large-character, small-character and micro-pigment printers as well as inks for more traditional labellers.
