BoFood MH Mixing system
This series meets all three requirements on food packaging in terms of ink.
- International Patent Application -
This series meets all three requirements on food packaging when it comes to ink. These are:
- Low odour
- Swelling reduced
- Migration harmless
BoFood MH inks are migration harmless. This means that, in contrast to traditional low migration systems, they exhibit absorption properties and therefore a physical drying. Typographically they are therefore clearly superior to the classical low migration systems. And yet they fulfil all legal requirements in terms of food safety as the absorbing and therefore potential migrating components are foodstuffs or food additives themselves. This enables the usage of BoFood MH ink for the production of primary food packaging, also.
The requirement for low odour calls for binding agents, which do not comply with the common demands for abrasion resistance. Therefore dispersion varnishing is strictly necessary for all printing jobs with BoFood MH.
The principal application is mainly the printing of primary packaging for flavour sensitive filling.
Thanks to these properties all requirements for total migration (< 60 ppm) as well as the specific migration (< 10 ppb) for non-evaluated substances can be fulfilled, product wise. A barrier coating in order to comply with the legal demands of the regulation 1935/2004 EG is not necessary for the ink.
|Mineral oil free||yes|
|Primary food packaging||appropriate|
Conformity with 1935/2004 EG
The confirmation of an independent institute in regard to conformity of printing with BoFood MH inks is available.
The BoFood MH mixing system consists of 12 basic inks plus black and transparent white.
