Comexi Group collaborates with BASF and Wikoff Color Corporation to develop more sustainable presses (n91/2012)

The aims of innovation and the development of more sustainable printing unite companies who will be exhibiting the fruits of their collaboration at Drupa

Girona, 9th May 2012.- Comexi Group, a specialist in the manufacture of machinery for the flexible packaging converting industry, is working with BASF and Wikoff Color Corporation in the development of its latest innovations. The three companies, recognised in their sectors as leaders in innovation and sustainable development, will be presenting the products deriving from their respective collaborations at Drupa.

During the graphic arts trade fair, Comexi Group and BASF will be demonstrating the sector’s move towards solvent-free printing with the COMEXI FLEXO F2. The company’s new press will be adapting the latest water-based inks technology with BASF resins to flexographic printing, thus offering enhanced sustainability and reduced cost, yet maintaining a high level of print quality and printability. BASF will also present its solutions for water-based printing inks, adhesives for lamination and biodegradable packaging materials.

At Drupa, Comexi and Wikoff Color Corporation will exhibit a new printing technology that uses solvent-free, low-migration inks for food-grade packaging and perfectly compatible with the innovative offset printing system with a central drum using EB offset inks.  The Wikoff inks offer excellent print properties and stable performance in food-grade packaging applications, with outstanding adherence on both paper and cardboard as well as various plastic films.

All the Comexi Group novelties will be on show in Hall 10 C62 of the Drupa Trade Fair.
