Zeller+Gmelin completes successful Uvaflex colour series
Zeller+Gmelin GmbH & Co. KG recently added new products to its colour series Uvaflex FCM Y81. In addition to its newly developed gloss varnish, these also include five different types of black for various applications. They complete the current FCM generation introduced to the market by the Eislingen-based printing ink manufacturer at Labelexpo 2017. Like the entire series, the new products have typical features such as low migration potential and good printing properties. This is due to the use of new raw materials and an innovative technology that significantly reduces migration-critical components. As all currently relevant legal requirements can be fulfilled in this way, the ink series represents a practical solution, especially for food or cosmetic packaging.
The new gloss varnish YL-7G106 rounds off the Uvaflex FCM Y81 colour series with a varnish that ensures safe handling during both printing and curing. It is bisphenol-A free, meets Nestlé's guidance note and has high abrasion resistance. The varnish can easily be overprinted with standard thermal transfer ribbons.
Zeller+Gmelin has developed a whole range of colour types for the black sector, each suitable for different applications. These include a process set black (Y81-S1400), matt black (Y81-X40302), a brilliant black (Y81-X40101) and a backside black (Y81-X40200), which cannot be overprinted. A fifth type of black, Y81-X40301, is designed for surface printing for lid applications. This product offers increased scratch resistance.
The new FCM-Y81 series can be used universally on paper and film, so that different applications such as self-adhesive labels, shrink sleeves, in-mould labels, wrap-around labels, flexible packaging or folding boxes can be covered.
