The AR HYG Series 460 not only meets the stringent regulatory requirements imposed on applications involving short-term, direct contact with foodstuffs, but also the demands for high-quality printing solutions. The series has been developed using a water-based formulation with environmental considerations in mind. Since it avoids the use of organic solvents, it is also suitable for printing on compostable substrates (DIN EN 13432).
The ink series has been certified by ISEGA for the use in food contact materials (FCM) and complies with the Swiss Food Contact Materials Ordinance (SR 817.023.21), the current EU Framework Regulation 1935/2004, as well as the recently adopted German Printing Inks Ordinance. It also meets the requirements for various organic certifications, such as “OK compost”.
With AR HYG, ARCOLOR can now supply an ink system with a high degree of tinting strength and clarity that complies with both the requirements for color fastness specified in EN 646:2019-02, and the limits recommended by the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) for the concentration of primary aromatic amines (PaA). The new series sets itself apart thanks to its low drying temperature, tack adhesiveness, and minimal odor levels.
