Toyo Inks launches GMP-compliant inks for food packaging
Toyo Printing Inks, Inc. launched the LP-9000 Toyo Life PremiumFood LO/LM, a new series of sheetfed offset inks with low odour and low migration characteristics.
The LP-9000 LO/LM product is suitable for use in printed packages for the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutical, and other sensitive applications. This new low-migration offset series has been specially formulated for printing on the non-food contact surface of paper and cardboard media.
The new inks were engineered and manufactured in accordance with EuPIA (European Printing Ink Association) guidelines and the GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices).
With the announcement, Toyo Printing Inks delivers on this commitment to increased food safety and to protecting human and environmental health with the introduction of a new low-migration ink system.
The LP-9000 LO/LM ink series is composed of raw materials from plant and renewable sources, which do not contain any drying agents. Instead, drying is achieved purely by substrate penetration without releasing any hexanal while drying, resulting in reduced odour intensity.
