WESSCO® Low Migration Coatings

UV coatings for food packaging

This is a portfolio of low migration UV coatings, including both standard and specialty products. Coatings have been developed for the use on food packaging in the indirect contact to dry and fat-including foodstuffs without the use of a functional or absolute barrier. They are compliant with legal requirements and meet the overall and specific migration limits. In order to fulfil customer requirements, we also offer customized coating solutions.

Use of high reactive raw materials

A very important fact about WESSCO® Low Migration Coatings is the use of high molecular weight and/or polymerizable photoinitiators. Thus, these are much less likely to migrate into the packaged food. In addition, coatings build on higher acrylic monomers for a strong crosslinking. They do not contain benzophenone, 4-methylbenzophenone or bisphenol A intentionally. This makes WESSCO® Low Migration Coatings the perfect choice when it comes to enhancing and protecting sensitive food packaging.
