WEILBURGER Graphics launches new, low-migration UV lacquer line

 

Gerhardshofen, March 15th 2018 – WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, has been succeeded a breakthrough in the production of low-migration UV lacquers.

The use of low-molecular compounds < 1000 Dalton is omitted here. The UV irradiation initiates a self-crosslinking process which results in to a high crosslinking density of the polymer matrix.

WEILBURGER Graphics launches new film laminating adhesive

 

Gerhardshofen, February 16th 2018 – WEILBURGER Graphics GmbH, based in Gerhardshofen, Franconia, has developed a new, self-cross-linking film laminating adhesive for use in the indirect food packaging. In contrast to the previous two-component adhesives, this new generation of self-cross-linking film laminating adhesive guaranteed initial and final adhesive even without the addition of hardener. The adhesive is embossing-proof and creasing able and can be optionally processed for the application with special films. Another advantage of the new SENOBOND® WB FILM LAMINATING ADHESIVE FP NDC 375224 is the common chemical basis of the new adhesive with the already established SENOBOND® WB FILM LAMINATING ADHESIVE 375207. Thus, the expensive wash cycle can be omitted when converting the adhesive plant to packaging which are not suitable for food packaging which again saves time and money.
