Now here’s an important supply chain solution – our new Water Based Flexographic (WBF) High Humidity Coating – aimed at benefiting production environments at a time of significant increased demands.

As high humidity is a factor in post-print processes, or lithographic presses equipped with water based coating units, it was important for us to utilise our technical expertise and develop a coating solution that could withstand challenging environments such as those present in the paper and corrugated printing industries.
Used in combination with an appropriate CO? laser marking system, the high humidity coating is designed to be heat, moisture scuff and rub resistant, providing a stable image density that does not deteriorate. It can be used for case coding applications in a variety of applications including food & beverage and e-commerce on either brown or white paper and board substrates and is also suitable for non-direct food contact packaging applications.

Sustainability is also key here, with the coating delivering some important benefits, including the elimination of label backing waste and/or hazardous ink disposal from supply chains by removing the need for consumables in production/manufacturing environments.
As an alternative to print & apply labelling and high resolution inkjet printing of shipping data onto boxes (e.g. GS1 compliant barcodes, variable price/weight information, variable contents/ingredients data), our impressive WBF High Humidity Coating addresses the challenges faced by brand owners and retailers seeking novel solutions to their mandatory shipping data needs.
