MEK-FREE

THERMOCHROMIC PACKAGING

Although MEK is not classified as an ozone-depleting compound or substance of very high concern (SVHC), local regulations or preferences may limit the use of inks containing MEK. The Zanasi MEK-Free range allows for a reliable solution for a wide variety of surfaces.

Thermochromic ink formulated for use on materials subjected to sterilisation with the aim of providing indications for quality control through the ink’s colour change. The sterilisation process must take place at a minimum temperature of 121°C for 45 minutes or more in order for the colour change from green to blue to happen, which means that the thermal treatment has been carried out in the phase of hermetic packaging.

Applications: food containers and cases, bags, plastic films made of LDPE, PS, BOPP.

Applications: preserves in tin-free aluminium containers, soup, single dose packages, products in coated material bags (plastic-aluminium), cans, lids and jars.
