Safe printing – safe packaging

WEILBURGER products for the food industry

A major feature of the revised product catalogue is a new identification number system which allows the user during the ordering process to identify every range and every product suitable for food packaging by means of a simple numeric code.

Tinted varnishes for increased safety in the press room

To make the use of water-based coatings for the food industry even safer in production, we tint them with dyes that are also specially suitable for food packaging.

This means that the coatings of the water-based product class SENOLITH® WB FP PLUS can be easily distinguished from other varnishes, even by production staff in the pressroom.

Any confusion with varnishes that are not suitable for food packaging can thus be ruled out. The concentration of the dyes used has been adjusted by us in such a way that the apparent greenish hue in the container, which serves to visually distinguish the coatings, does not affect the print result in any way or even lead to colour distortions here.

The slight coloration does not alter the print image.

In general, the raw material components used meet the requirements of the European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances (EINECS), the EuPIA raw material exclusion policy for printing inks and related products, and REACH Regulation 1907/2006.

Since also in the area of foodstuff conformity there are many uncertainties amongst brand owners, designers, printers and finishers with regards to the current legal status and the particular requirements for printed products that will be in direct or indirect contact to food, we offer within our seminar range also special trainings about this subject. These trainings can take place at our premises in Gerhardshofen (Germany) or based on demand in international locations as well. 

Product safety has the highest priority at Weilburger and this is reflected throughout the entire production chain:

  • Evaluation and approval of raw materials for food contact
  • Substitution of raw materials with critical components, particularly when the classification becomes stricter
  • Storage and delivery of raw materials and finished pro-ducts according to law
  • Passing information within the production chain regarding our products’ conformity with the numerous existing regulations (i.e. the current EU regulations, the Swiss Commodities ordinance, the European Toys norm, European Cosmetics norm, European Biocides norm, etc.), conforming work between raw material suppliers and finishers, and the issuing of SoC (Statement of Composition) amongst others
  • Identification of our finished products according to GHS (Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals) standards
  • Creating and regularly updating our safety data sheets
  • Supervising and assuring the legal conformity of our products for food contact materials through regular laboratory tests and commissioning external migration tests

Weilburger is again leading the way by setting a good example and enables its customers to ensure absolute safety in the production of food-safe packaging by means of comprehensive information, clear cataloguing and a carefully thought-out product range that also takes into account forthcoming legal requirements.
