Henkel and HP Indigo expand their digital printing cooperation for flexible packaging

New solutions for excellent results in digital printing for flexible laminates

Individualization and personalization of packaging is a progressive trend with a strong impact also on flexible laminate solutions. This development brings with it an increased industry interest in digital printing technologies: They are ideal for individually designed packages and smaller job sizes. Expanding the portfolio for its customers with specific fast-curing adhesives and leveraging on its best-in-class expertise, Henkel is delighted to bring its alliance with HP Indigo to the next level.

Henkel now extends its offering for digital printing with Loctite Liofol LA 2760 / 5028. This two-component solvent-based polyurethane adhesive system is optimized for retort pouches and withstands sterilization, boiling as well as pasteurization. And it is the perfect fit for HP Indigo’s Pack Ready coating solution: With the chemical crosslinking of the ink and primer, the processing properties and packaging characteristics are greatly improved. This combination makes high performance in digital printing possible for additional food package types, particularly for retort pouches from PET, AI, OPA and CPP laminates. Further, Loctite Liofol LA 2760 / 5028 shows a very fast decay of primary aromatic amines (PAA), further improving the packaging’s food safety properties.

Discover more applications at Interpack 2017

Henkel and HP will present more examples of product innovations and system solutions at Interpack from May 4th until May 10th. Visitors can discover Henkel’s adhesive solutions and learn more about Henkel’s collaboration with HP Indigo in hall 7, booth C10. HP Indigo will display a sample of a stand up pouch produced with its Pack Ready coating solution and Henkel’s Loctite Liofol LA 2760 / 5028 at its stand in hall 13.

For the lamination of flexible packaging the adhesive and printing ink need to be compatible to deliver excellent results.
