Kirchheim, near Munich − Ink experts hubergroup and pigment specialists Heubach have joined forces in a strategic partnership for water-based inks. The collaboration brings together the wealth of experience of both partners.
As part of the collaboration, Heubach, which has been manufacturing pigments for over 200 years, is producing water-based pigment preparations developed jointly with hubergroup offering excellent color strength and gloss and outstanding shock stability.
hubergroup, with its extensive know-how in ink development, combines these basic concentrates with other specially designed components to form a new water-based flexo printing ink system that perfectly meets the modern requirements of the packaging industry for an extremely wide range of applications.
The result is the new HYDRO-X GA/MGA product range, a modular user system for the production of packaging inks offering maximum quality and economy. hubergroup is offering the new HYDRO-X system in two versions: GA for GMP-compliant production and the premium variant MGA for maximum reliability in terms of migration, for packaging that comes into indirect contact with food - with all the associated market benefits. It represents the ideal starting point for a wide range of ink formulations using just a few system components.
