Expert of UV Inks and Lacquers
As a result of more than 150 years of research, experience and technological development, the name of Zeller+Gmelin is now more and more associated with high quality and reliability on the increasingly demanding printing ink market.
Zeller+Gmelin is one of the world's leading suppliers of radiation-curing printing inks and varnishes. For applications, whether it’s labels, moulded articles, metal printing, commercials, packaging and food packaging (low-migration inks and coatings), we offer a complete range of high quality and advanced printing inks and coatings, which have been proven in practice!
We offer high quality UV and water based Flexo inks as well as UV and LED UV Offset and UV Letterpress inks for printing self-adhesive labels, flexible packagings, shrink-sleeve labels and carton board. Our printing inks are also available in EB offset technology for printing flexible packaging materials.
Lacquers and adhesives
For UV varnishing of packaging materials and labels, we offer a wide range of primers, overprint lacquers of various designs and special varnishes, as well as UV-curing laminating and cold foil adhesives for narrow-web (flexo and offset) applications, in standard low migration versions.
Due to the constantly tightening regulations, it is of the utmost importance to choose the right inks and varnishes. With formulation on the basis of latest raw materials and as a result of successful developments at Zeller+Gmelin, a wide range of new-generation, low-migration FCM inks are available for printing food packaging.
Zeller+Gmelin uses its own analytical laboratory that has been established specifically for development of low-migration inks, quality control of raw materials, and internal assessment of test samples. The analysis of migration-related ink properties is carried out with gas chromatograph (GC-MS), liquid chromatograph (HPLC-MS), and the related mass spectrometry.
Naturally, the low-migration ink series produced by Zeller+Gmelin are also tested and assessed by independent institutes.
This double verification provides the highest possible product safety to printing houses, customers, and end-users. It is proven by the results of numerous analyses that, by professional use of the inks, the specified migration limit of 10 ppb may be reached, and even exceeded (migration test – using 95% ethyl alcohol).
