hubergroup Print Solutions restructures its UV poly/tin offset portfolio

Ink Solutions

Everything from a single source – with this aim in mind, the international ink specialist hubergroup Print Solutions has revised and strengthened its UV offset portfolio for non absorbent substrates. The portfolio includes printing inks, varnishes, and fountain solution additives that are optimally matched to each other and thus enable a smooth printing process. Thanks to intensive development work, the globally available food and non food ink series NewV poly (MGA) and NewV tin (MGA) as well as the varnish series NewV lac (MGA) are now also formulated to be sensorially neutral and PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) free.

‘Our customers are our focus, so it was important to us to provide printers with a well matched and globally available portfolio with the best printing performance,’ said Roland Schröder, product manager UV-offset explaining the new positioning as a complete range, which does not only include inks but also varnishes and fountain solution additives.

Beyond that, there are some changes in the UV offset portfolio: for example, the ink and varnish series are now formulated PTFE free. In addition, the NewV lac series is now free of benzophenone, a substance that is considered controversial due to its potential carcinogenic effects. Last but not least, there is a new NewV tin LED series for metal packaging, which includes UV inks and varnishes for LED drying.

According to hubergroup, the common feature of all products is very good reactivity and adhesion. Roland Schröder sums up: ‘With this repositioning, we have designed our portfolio future oriented. At the same time, however, it was important to us that printers can continue to rely on a stable printing process with high quality printing results. Our international service staff is therefore available for our customers with expertise at all times and accompany the complete project handling from the idea to implementation and continuous further support.’

Tools such as the company's own HDCC colour management system, which guarantees customers the same colour all over the world, round off the service offering.
