Water-based inks are nontoxic, odourless, and acceptable for use with food. This choice gives up a wide range of opportunities for businesses that package goods including food, cosmetics, medicines, and even toys for kids.
Since no additional material is required to avoid ink contamination, food packaging made with water-based inks has a lower environmental impact.
Water is the primary solvent used by water-based inks to convey pigment, according to their definition. They mostly consist of acrylic resins or hybrid polyurethane-acrylic resin mixtures.
The Global Water-based ink packaging market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
Siegwerk unveils next-gen sustainable water-based inks. Siegwerk’s new sustainable water-based ink range has excellent ink performance and colour strengths, providing comparable levels of performance and properties to current water-based technologies.
User tests have revealed improved dot shape, comparable dot gain, high resolubility, and ease of cleaning on press, implying that it can be easily swapped out for current products without the need for new equipment, processes, or colour matches.
UniNature can also achieve high printing speeds on presses, on both coated and uncoated papers. The new inks and coatings series can be used in a variety of paper and board applications, such as corrugated board boxes, trays and displays, fast food packaging, sacks and bags, and cups and wraps.
It supports a wide range of printing applications while meeting the most stringent market and regulatory requirements.
UniNature inks are designed for use with Siegwerk’s Unibase coloured bases and are available from Siegwerk as ready-to-use inks.
UniNature extenders and Unibase colorbases, on the other hand, are more frequently supplied to customers to be mixed on demand in order to dispense equipment directly to the customer.
By combining best-in-class ink performance, high product safety, and extensive sustainability know-how with a holistic understanding of packaging, we can provide a unique value proposition.
