Sirane announces ‘world first’ ovenable packaging printed with water-based inks

Sirane has released a range of ovenable films and pouches printed with water-based inks in a reported first for the packaging industry.

Said to be compliant with EU and FDA packaging regulations, the materials have been printed and laminated with water-based inks and adhesives, and have reportedly been tested by Smithers for ovenable food safety performance at up to 220°C (430°F).

The packaging is decorated using Sirane’s Amethyst print technology, which results in high print definition, enhanced image clarity, and greater densities with no plate costs, according to the company. It also utilises a water-based ink system – thought to reduce the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emitted during production.

Furthermore, the water-based adhesives are apparently free of substances that can cause the release of aromatic amines in solvent-based alternatives, reducing exposure to carcinogens.
