TAKING RESPONSIBILITY SERIOUSLY

The safest way to apply UV coatings on food packaging is to provide a barrier. However, if there is no barrier available, just suitable UV coatings come into question corresponding to applicable food packaging regulations. In contrast to dedicated water-based coatings, UV coatings can be used for the indirect food contact only. FoodClass® by ACTEGA relies on those raw materials that can be well integrated into the coating, are low-migration and suitable for food packaging.

For FoodClass, we count on high-molecular photoinitiators. However, we also evaluate all other components of the coating, such as binders, monomers and additives.
