Virtual presentation of EB Solutions for sustainable and recyclable flexible packaging

The Green Packaging Showroom presented the benefits using electron beam (EB) printing technologies.

The Green Packaging Showroom, an event organised by Comexi and companies of the flexible packaging industry, was joined by approximately 1,000 people. The event presented the technological advantages of printing with offset or flexo electron beam curable inks, and its use in a wide range of flexible packaging applications.

Felip Ferrer, the offset brand manager of Comexi’s printing business unit, commented: “In partnership with SP Group, Elif, Chemosvit, Amcor, Vishal Containers, ESI, Sun Chemical, INX International, Dow, ExxonMobil, and Toray, we have shown brand owners the benefits that can be obtained using EB printing technologies.”

During the event, various partners showcased their solutions, and presented examples of flexible packaging, sustainable trends and solutions. The advantages of EB flexo and EB offset printing technologies were also disclosed at the event, and issues related to print quality and energy reduction of the printing process were addressed. These issues include EB inks, EB curing, packaging recyclability through the use of thinner films, mono-materials and reduction of layers, as well as global scale reduction of the carbon footprint.
