ACTEGA RHENANIA – EXPERTS FOR PIGMENTED PRODUCT SOLUTIONS – ALSO FOR DIRECT FOOD CONTACT

Coatings and adhesives for food packages ensure a longer shelf life of the filling by protecting it from influences of oxygen and UV-rays as well as damages caused by transport.

Besides the protective function, packaging needs to meet various design aspects. As confirmed by several studies, colors affect the psyche by arousing emotions – if perceived consciously or intuitively. This effect plays a major role in the packaging industry. Brand Owners use the power of colors and design for consequent implementation of their marketing strategy.

To exclude undesired impact on health and environment, the manucacturers of pigmented product solutions for food packaging face various challenges. The coatings and adhesives have to comply exactly with the customer‘s and brand owner‘s specifications in regards to the demanded color shades and to the respective legal requirements for food contact.
