The new series iray is designed as a one-stop portfolio for UV flexo printing

The new series iray, which replaces Hubergroup’s NewV flex series, is designed as a one-stop portfolio for UV flexo printing. The comprehensive, high-performance system features UV flexo inks for food as well as non-food applications and also includes perfectly matched varnishes, primers, and adhesives.

Iray reflects Hubergroup’s strategic approach to meaningfully simplify printers' workflow by consolidating an assortment of UV flexo printing offerings under a single ink system. The newest addition are UV-curable inks and varnishes designed exclusively for food packaging applications. Backed by intensive research and thoughtfully selected raw materials, the inks match Hubergroup's stringent MGA (low-migration and low-odour) guidelines, which have long been synonymous with safe application on food packaging.

The fast-curing iray products with properties like high scratch resistance, excellent adhesion, low odour, and high ink yields perform well and cover multiple applications. Rigorous laboratory tests have ensured that iray inks and varnishes are deinkable on both film and paper substrates, thus ensuring their environmental compatibility. In addition, the PMV department of the Technical University of Darmstadt, Germany, certified that the products are well-deinkable on paper using INGEDE method 11. 

The trained team of Hubergroup’s service staff is adding to the ease-of-use experience by supporting customers with a smooth implementation of the new UV flexo system and being available for on-site support at any time later.

“At Hubergroup, we prioritise the development of safe and sustainable packaging. Our product development team in Germany has innovated iray – a smartly tailored, broadly inclusive, perfectly matched system for UV flexo printing,“ said Suresh Kalra, managing director, India and president, Asia at Hubergroup.
