Hubergroup displayed its portfolio of safe and sustainable inks

Hubergroup’s MGA portfolio includes, among others, the sheet-fed series MGA Natura, which is designed for safe printing on the outside of food packaging, as well as the direct food contact series MGA Contact, which allows safe and vivid printing on the inside of the paper and cardboard food packaging.

The newcomer series MGA Food News and MGA Evolution, on the other hand, are aimed at web offset printers who want to establish a new business with the printing of food packaging. These first are low-migration and low-odour coldset and heatset inks to produce food-compliant paper packaging in large quantities using four-colour printing. Food manufacturers can thus make their packaging more colourful, for example, by reproducing their products' true-to-life on it.

When it comes to non-food packaging, Hubergroup also presented its ink series Rapida Eco and Eco-Perfect-Dry which both combine fast and sustainable printing. Rapida Eco is one of the fastest vegetable-based inks for sheet-fed printing available on the market. Eco-Perfect-Dry is convinced through the combination of fast setting with high resistance, mechanical stress, and eco-friendliness.
