WEILBURGER Graphics as exhibitor at the ninth IST UV-Days

WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, will be exhibiting at the biannual UV-Days of IST METZ GmbH in Nürtingen from May 13th – 16th this year.

The company will be presenting its latest range of SENOLITH® UV and SENOLITH® UV LED lacquer series as well as a groundbreaking new UV lacquer under the new SENOLITH® UV FP PLUS product class, which is no longer based on “classic” photoinitiators. The UV lacquer technology optimized by WEILBURGER Graphics for this PLUS lacquer series and being used for the first time in this new product class dispenses with the use of low-molecular photoinitiators such as benzophenone or 4-methylbenzphenon, which minimize the migration of fission products. The use of low molecular weight compounds < 1000 Dalton is dispended with. The UV radiation initiates a self-crosslinking process which leads to a high crosslinking density of the polymer matrix.

 

Thanks to this new crosslinking technology, the new SENOLITH® UV GLOSS LACQUER INLINE FP NDC PLUS 360430 is particularly low migration and thus ideally suited for use in the food industry.

The SENOLITH® UV FP PLUS lacquers can be processed inline as well as offline with all common standard UV lamp systems.

 

All classical advantages of UV lacquer systems:

  • Immediate curing
  • Immediate further processing possible (inline)
  • No powder dusting in sheetfed offset
  • 100 % systems (solvent free, no VOC emissions)[read more]
 

TroTEMPTATION®-X – Ground breaking new film quality from TroFilms GmbH

TroFilms GmbH, based in Georgensgmünd in Germany, is launching a completely new film quality on the market under the product name TroTEMPTATION®-X with immediate effect. TroTEMPTATION®-X impresses with its appearance, special feel and the very high processing quality that is typical for TroFilms products.

Through a comprehensive research and development process, the company has succeeded in optimising the complex combination of the new production process and the coating materials used in it. This is done in such a way that an ultra-matt film quality with an extremely soft feel and a very high and uniform degree of mattness can be produced without the use of matting agents. Production tolerances can almost no longer be measured due to continuous process optimization. TroTEMPTATION®-X offers very high scratch and abrasion resistance, very good tear resistance, high resistance to sweat and fingerprints and - like almost all film qualities from TroFilms GmbH - can be overcoated with radically curing UV varnishes, hot-foil embossed and bonded (pre-tests are recommended for all further processing processes). In addition, the company has provided this film quality with a specially modifie... [read more]
