• Molecule - The Future of Ink is Here
    The Future of Chemistry

Flexible packaging includes bags, envelopes, pouches, sachets, and wraps made materials such as film, foil, or paper sheeting which are sealed to keep foods contained and fresh. Industrial inkjet is just beginning to have products for this market. IT is critical the the inkjet inks are carefully formulated to meet the appropriately stringent regulations of the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) and EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) as well as other non-government bodies such the Nessles Protocol. Recent advances in low viscocity UV Curable technologies are making UV curable ink continue to be a go to technology for food packaging. Hybrid inks with water or other food safe solvents when integrated into the UV inks allow for low viscocity while also having the benefit of high molecular weight monomers which meet the low migration standards. Molecule is dedicated to understanding the regulatory landscape and developing state of the art technologies.
