In the area of water-based fluids, ACTDigi® Jettable offers packages of primers, inks and overprint varnishes for inkjet printing.
Inkjet printing is a complex technology and also requires complex consumables. This, combined with the requirements of the packaging printing industry in terms of fluid robustness and regulatory compliance, creates a very challenging task that is completely different from the traditional consumables business. For example, unlike analog printing, a new inkjet fluid is not immediately tested at the customer’s installation. Instead, developers are tasked with replicating a variety of applications in-house and developing a robust ink. Proper droplet formation is critical; thus, it is extremely valuable for the developer to observe how the fluid behaves during jetting. This observation provides information on how to properly adjust a formulation. At ACTEGA, we rely on dedicated teams in R&D and technical services as well as state-of-the-art equipment. The focus is on close cooperation with our system partners. We place high expectations on our technologies. Thus, in the area of inks, we do not only consider printability and drying behavior, but also look at the optical appearance and, if required, chemical and physical resistances of our products. We currently have a portfolio of water-based prototype fluids that meet indirect food contact regulations. All fluids work well on a wide range of substrates, from film to paper and board. Our packages of primers, inks and overprint varnishes help us to meet market requirements and achieve the intended properties of the printed product.
