High performance solutions for the UV/EB/LED curable printing inks

Sartomer has developed a full range of specialty acrylates to offer solutions for the complete set of UV printing technologies:

 

 

  • Inkjet
  • Offset
  • Flexo
  • Screen
  • OPV

 

A pioneer in the development of specialty acrylates for UV LED curing systems

We believe UV-LED technology to be the future of UV printing, for it is a lower energy-consuming option than traditional Hg-doped lamps. UV-LED lamps offer a narrow but intense spectral emission, which requires highly functional reactive material, available in our product range.

A strong expertise and anticipation of evolving regulations and directives:

  • A full and personalized support to address REACH market transition
  • Compliance with most influential brand owner’s requirements (BPA free, organotin free, PETIA free solutions)
  • Low migration LM and Y range of products for food packaging applications, being
    guaranteed to be compliant with the Swiss list and Nestlé guidance notes, with no risk
    of contamination and a very low potential for migration.
