Food packaging compliance

A full panel of compliant acrylate systems for UV and LED curable printing inks and varnishes

 

 

 

In order to answer to the challenging indirect food contact applications, we are actively working to find the best solutions to keep the formulators at the highest level of performance.

 

 

To that purpose, we are proposing a dedicated offer of monomers and oligomers:

Acrylate oligomer for superior adhesion UV LED EB curable printings inks

Our Y and LM monomer range

The development of this range is based on three fundamental pillars:

  • Thorough selection of raw materials
  • Strict process control
  • Analytical quality control process linked to tight specifications

 

 

The following table is highlighting our range of superior quality monomers under “LM*” and “Y*” references.

                          Range

 

          Viscosity (Pa.s @25°C)

    

              Performance

Industrial Y LM
SR9020 SR9020Y   90 Good pigment wetting
SR454 SR454Y SR455LM 65 Good diluency
SR494   SR494LM 180 Good reactivity
SR399 SR399Y   10600 Excellent scratch resistance
CN3715   CN3715LM 74 Excellent surface cure

* In all cases it is essential that the end-user establishes the suitability of the selected monomers in each formulated ink/varnish systems intended for indirect food contact application.

Our fully compliant oligomer selection

The following table provides a selection of Sartomer’s oligomers* which have been fully assessed according to the current regulatory standards which apply to the Food Packaging sector, including Swiss Ordinance, Nestlé Guidance Note on Packaging Inks and EuPIA guidelines.
