UV Curable , Low Migration topcoats specially designed to work on Flexographic applications. The coatings have low migration properties due to their ow migration photointiators and meticulously selected materials when used with low migration inks. Typically these coatings have outstanding flow and leveling properties as well as excellent curing capability features. They create an even, smooth surface with a gloss finish and high scuff resistance, with superior flexibility for scoring and folding.

These coatings are designed to be applied through various application systems including flexo and roller coater unit offset water fount on flexo presses.
To get the optimal gloss the recommended application is app 2-3 Gr/m2
Mix well before use, making sure that equipment is clean in order to avoid contamination from other materials
This coating is designed to be cured at with 1-120 Watt/cm2 UV lamps. Greater press speed and curing capability may be achieved with additional UV lamps. Substrate may also have an effect on cure speed. Always test coating for compatibility with ink systems, substrates and for sufficient cure before general use.
Appliance and other equipment must be cleaned with Low Migration approved cleaning products.
UV Products must be stored tightly closed, away from sunlight, avoiding temperatures higher than 50°C. UV Products are packaged leaving sufficient air space to prevent accidental polymerization of the product.
NORMAL STORAGE DURATION: 1 year

Consumer’s care and safety are one of our first target and for this reason food should not be contaminated by any external substance. Within this frame we keep in mind that all the components of our inks must not migrate inside food-packaging. Our low migration ink and coating series have all law requirements to be used in printing for non-food contact surface.
Framework Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 related to materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs provides the basis for the assurance of a high level of protection of human health and of consumers’ interests in relation to food packaging, whether printed or not. The manufacturer of the final packaging has the responsibility for the compliance of the material and article with the legal requirements laid down in Article 3: Materials and articles must be manufactured in compliance with good manufacturing practice so that, under their normal or foreseeable conditions of use, they do not transfer their constituents to foodstuffs in quantities which could:
CEPE is the European Council of producers and importers of paints, printing inks and artists colours whereas EuPIA is the European Printing Ink Group of CEPE. The printing industry voluntarily came up with the Exclusion List for specific substances many years ago. The raw materials used by Frimpeks for the formulation of our printing inks/varnishes meet the guidelines of the CEPE / EuPIA Exclusion SWISS ORDINANCE ON MATERIALS AND ARTICLES IN CONTACT WITH FOOD (SR 817.023.21) article 26g, Annex 1 (list 1 and 2) and 6; Nestlé guidance note on packaging inks and varnishes – august 2016..
CONEG stands for Coalition of North-Eastern Governors in the USA. One of their legislations, adopted by 18 states as of 1998, requires reductions in the amount of the four heavy metals mercury, lead, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium in packaging and packaging compo- nents sold or distributed in their member states. For Frimpeks printing inks/coatings, the limits for heavy metals as listed in the CONEG-Regulation (USA) are met. The Euro Norm 71.3 refers to the max level of heavy metals in children’s toys. For Frimpeks printing inks/coatings, the limits for heavy metals as listed in the DIN EN 71-3 are met. Heavy metals are no part of our formulations.
Substances mentioned in the directive 2002/95/EC (RoHS) are not intentionally used in our formulations printing inks/coatings.
In our products no substances are used which meet the criteria of SVHC-substances (substances of very high concern). SVHC-substances are substances which are classified as CMR 1 & 2, PBT (PBT pollutants are chemicals that are toxic, persist in the environment and bioaccumulate in food chains), vPvB (Substances that are potentially very persistent and very bioaccumulative) and endocrine disruptors (artificial hormones).
The substances listed in the guide line 67/548/EEC (amended by the directive 2006/121/EC) and in the guide line 76/769/EEC are not part of the formulation of our printing inks/coatings. Furthermore, we confirm that our printing inks/coatings are in accordance with the EC regulation 1895/2005 (repeals the guide line 2002/16/EC).
Enhanced Statement of composition (ESoC) is available on request to support with migration testing and compliance with Plastics Regulation (EU) No 10/2011, the Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21 Annex 1 or 6 or listed on the ‘Provisional List of Additives used in Plastics’ or listed as a food additive in Regulation (EC) No 1333/2008 and Regulation (EC) 1334/2008.
