AstroNova introduce a breakthrough new food friendly, heat sealable, flexible packaging material that can be digitally printed!
This Breakthrough FOOD-SAFE FLEXIBLE PACKAGING PRINTING SOLUTION has been designed to work perfectly with TrojanLabel presses by AstroNova. The digital, narrow-format solution can be used in either a standalone printing mode. Or in-line with standard packaging equipment for a complete “print and pack” process. The combination of the unique ink and lamination offers a food friendly packaging solution. Because it allows users to seal in both horizontal and vertical form fill and seal machines. Whilst, using low temperatures for high speed sealing.
Going digital will easily allow flexible packaging printers to produce short- to mid-level packaging runs on demand. This feature includes the ability to print barcodes and variable data, with the precise registration that is expected from TrojanLabel presses. Therefore, this printing solution can easily be expanded to include a wide array of product packaging. Also offering the ability to produce the exact number of custom printed packages needed.
The unique, ultra-thin, white gloss PET film was specifically developed to be receptive to AstroNova’s water-based inkjet inks. The inner transparent sealing layer of the film protects food products from coming into contact with the outer layer. The water-based inks used are food friendly, odourless, and free of reactive chemicals, making them safer than other inks available on the market today, and are in compliance with international standards.
