FASTMATCH™ – VALUE-ADDED SOLUTION
Siegwerk Environmental Inks has worked to not only provide a technology
-forward product o;ering, but also a value-added service o;ering.
FastMatch is a highly re;ned approach to existing color matching
technology. It utilizes the industry-dependent X-Rite Color Master™
web-based software in combination with proprietary sets of optimized
ink calibrations internally developed by Siegwerk Environmental Inks
FastMatch specialists. With new technology and advanced proo;ng
methods, Siegwerk Environmental Inks has found truly innovative ways
to improve the accuracy of ink calibration sets, allowing FastMatch to
deliver industry leading results to converters.
So how does FastMatch help you? FastMatch helps to reduce downtime.
Less downtime translates into less waste and quicker turnover time between jobs. FastMatch allows a converter to have the same color matching
expertise as if an in-plant technician were onsite. If an ink comes in out of
speci;cation press-side, a rapid and consistent option is available to allow
for the press to be up and running in less time. Siegwerk Environmental
Inks FastMatch specialists work with the converter to properly train the
appropriate personnel on the use of the software.
LOW MIGRATION PRODUCTS –
MARKET LEADING INK SOLUTION
The potential for migration with conventional UV inks and coatings is
a well-known problem. While global reactions and subsequent policies
have varied in terms of restrictions and degree of implementation,the
consensus opinion is that printing food and pharmaceutical packaging
or labels with con ventional UV inks and coatings is an objectionable
practice. Packaging and labels for foodstu; and pharmaceutical packaging
must therefore be printed using low migration systems.
In response to these issues coupled with the demand for the high
quality graphics achievable with UV ink technologies, Siegwerk
Environmental Inks has successfully developed a full line of low
migration (LM) UV inks and coatings suitable for use on food and
pharmaceutical packaging. Siegwerk Environmental Inks o;ers a full
line of LM ;exographic, letterpress, and o;set inks and overprint
varnishes. Siegwerk Environmental Inks will partner with converters
to aid in the process of identifying, evaluating, and qualifying packages
or label designs that can be successfully converted with compliance
to food packaging regulations and restrictions.
Below are a sampling of the LM UV inks and coatings available from
Siegwerk Environmental Inks:
- Sicura™ PLAST LM (Low Migration) is a UV o;set/UV letterpress
ink solution speci;cally developed to achieve outstanding adhesion on
a wide range of synthetic substrates
- Sicura™ Flex 39-10 LM (Low Migration) is a UV ;exographic ink
solution exhibiting excellent printability, color intensity, gloss, ;ow,

terms of migration such as outlined in the Swiss Ordinance enacted
