Siegwerk unveils Sicura Litho Pack Eco, a new sustainable UV offset ink series for non-food paper and board applications. The new product range is formulated with high bio-renewable content, providing an environmentally friendly alternative to standard UV inks.

The formulation of the new Sicura Litho Pack Eco series consists of more than 40 per cent of renewable and vegetable-based components. Further, the series is free of TMPTA, Benzophenone as well as CMR CAT. 1 and CMR Cat. 2 components. It is a low odour ink series, and is suitable for all non-food packaging applications. The product range contains four colour process inks according to ISO, Pantone colours, base inks, special colours as well as flexo OPV.

“With Sicura Litho Pack Eco we deliver once again on our commitment to drive the change toward a circular economy by supporting the development of circular packaging with innovative and eco-friendly inks and coatings,” said Mustafa Guler, vice-president BU Sheetfed EMEA at Siegwerk. “With 40 per cent bio-renewable content, it is not only comparable to certain conventional oil-based inks, but it also represents a new eco-friendly alternative for UV offset printing. Its formulation is particularly designed for recycling and therefore for not impacting the recyclability of paper and board substrates at all.”
