UVALUX® LED U581 FCM – LED offset for food packaging

At Labelexpo Europe 2019, Zeller+Gmelin presented the new UVALUX® LED U581 FCM, the first FCM LED process colours for sheet-fed and web offset printing. The new series combines the advantage of low heat input to the substrate through LED technology with high migration resistance and excellent drying of the well-known standard UV applications. The ink series is suitable for LED systems in the wavelength ranges 385 and 395 nm.
