KIC Krones UV-curable inks

Brilliant colours for digital decoration: With UV-curable inks you can bring individual designs to life – and turn packaging into artwork.

The technology

Unlike classic labels, digital direct printing makes it possible to apply labels specifically to reliefs and structures. With the Krones multicroma range, KIC Krones offers the necessary colour for this, covering a colour spectrum from white and CMYK to special colours.

  • Special ink-jet inks complying with European regulations, adapted to suit the individual processes
  • Harmless materials, suitable for indirect food contact
  • Process stability and UV curing within seconds
  • High scratch resistance and low migration

The inks

Krones multicroma UV-curable inks have been specifically modified to suit the demands of digital decoration technology. What does this mean exactly? That they …

  • provide excellent coverage and span a wide colour spectrum.
  • achieve high mechanical resistance, adhesion or scratch resistance.
  • meet specific process requirements, such as the ability of printed glass bottles to resist pasteurisation.
  • also reliably adhere to the container in the presence of moisture and other stresses.

The correct product for each step: In addition to the UV-curable inks, the multicroma series offers perfectly matched consumables for the entire decoration process.

Decoration of other materials

Transparent, safe, sustainable

We place great importance on safety and sustainability both with regard to the products and their packaging:

  • PET bottles printed with multicroma UV-curable inks can be removed, processed and recycled to form new food packaging in conventional recycling washing processes.
  • The UV-curable inks receive a unique ID per RFID tag. This method prevents any mix-ups occurring during refilling right from the outset. The printed best before date and the tracking of the fill level simplify stock keeping and make the consumption in your production process transparent.
