DÜSSELDORF, GERMANY – Sun Chemical will introduce brand owners and converters to the fourth edition of its low migration guide entitled, “Designing Packaging with Certainty - A Best Practice Guide”, during Interpack 2014 at Stand C10/Hall 7a.
The newest edition of the low migration best practice guide has been expanded from previous editions to include low migration printing in the narrow web market and the UV flexo print process. It also amends the legislation section by covering the newest European and key national regulations. The guide provides a more current product selection and recommendation status.
Jonathan Sexton, European Product Manager Energy Curing, Sun Chemical said: “With the increase in the number of food packaging migration alerts in recent times, , our updated low migration best practice guide can be a great support to the packaging development workflow in the production of safe packaging for food and sensitive applications, such as tobacco and pharmaceuticals. While market awareness about migration issues has been increasing, Sun Chemical has promoted the use of low migration offset printing technology for more than 25 years and we can be a very supportive partner with brand owners on this issue.”
In 2004, Sun Chemical introduced the first edition of “Print for Packaging—A Printing Low Migration Best Practice Guide,” which has proved to be useful and popular for converters and end users alike. Approximately 5,000 copies have been shipped to date. The guide’s second and third editions were published in 2008 and 2011 respectively.
The fourth edition Best Practice Guide represents a summary of the key challenges faced by the packaging development supply chain and has been prepared by Sun Chemical using in-house knowledge, and after discussion with many industry experts in the printing and packaging industries.
The guide is laid out in a logical sequence to help readers understand the topic of how to design, produce, and store packaging safely with respect to migration of unwanted contaminants, and provides practical ways to minimise the risks. Sun Chemical addresses the most important questions from the viewpoint of an inks and coatings manufacturer and as a key stakeholder in the production of safe packaging through good manufacturing practice.
