Low Migration EPPI Coatings
In the food sector, 50% of all buying decisions are made spontaneously at the point of sale.
Frequently, the packaging draws the consumers' attention and literally whets their appetite for the contents. One way to achieve this is to finish the packaging with a special coating.
Our WESSCO® Low Migration matt, high-gloss and special effect coatings are solvent-free and cure under UV light. Developed specially for food applications, they give the desired surface finish to paper, cardboard and plastic foils for sensitive packaging – and ensure compliance with legal requirements and guidelines (GMP).
As implied by their name, WESSCO® Low Migration coatings minimise migration. This means that through careful formulation of our coatings, we can reduce the transfer of substances from the coating film to the contents of the packaging. In addition, these coatings do not contain benzophenone, 4-methyl benzophenone or bisphenol A.
Schmid Rhyner Low Migration coatings have one special property that we can only explain with a little "technospeak". A very important component of WESSCO® LM coatings is known as polymeric photoinitiators. These consist of molecules that are heavier than conventional photoinitiators. Due to their size, they are far less likely to migrate to the packaged food. That is why they are the perfect choice when it comes to finishing and protecting sensitive packaging in the food sector. For special applications, we can also offer our WESSCO® EPPI® Low Migration technology.
The components of these coatings are selected with extreme care – after all, we also have a great deal of expertise when it comes to finishing food packaging.
