WEILBURGER Graphics launches new, low-migration UV lacquer line

WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, has been succeeded a breakthrough in the production of low-migration UV lacquers.

The company is now launching an UV lacquer, which is no longer based on “classical photoinitiator”, under the new product class SENOLITH® UV FP PLUS. The UV lacquer technology used for the first time in this new product class dispenses without the use of low-molecular photoinitiator, e.g. benzophenone or 4-methylbenzphenon, which minimize the migration of fission products. The use of low-molecular compounds < 1000 Dalton is omitted here. The UV irradiation initiates a self-crosslinking process which results in to a high crosslinking density of the polymer matrix.

The new SENOLITH® UV GLOSS LACQUER INLINE FP NDC PLUS 360430 is particularly low migration due to this new crosslinking technology. 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 such as:

  • Immediately curing
  • Immediately further processing possible (inline)
  • No powder application in sheetfed offset
  • 100 % systems (solvent-free, no VOC-emissions)
  • Very high gloss, higher mechanical and chemical resistance of the lacquer film
  • No skin formation
  • High production speeds
  • Optimal stacking properties

WEILBURGER Graphics launches new film laminating adhesive

WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, has developed a new, self-cross-linking film laminating adhesive for use in the indirect food packaging. In contrast to the previous two-component adhesives, this new generation of self-cross-linking film laminating adhesive guaranteed initial and final adhesive even without the addition of hardener. The adhesive is embossing-proof and creasing able and can be optionally processed for the application with special films. Another advantage of the new SENOBOND® WB FILM LAMINATING ADHESIVE FP NDC 375224 is the common chemical basis of the new adhesive with the already established SENOBOND® WB FILM LAMINATING ADHESIVE 375207. Thus, the expensive wash cycle can be omitted when converting the adhesive plant to packaging which are not suitable for food packaging which again saves time and money.
