MENTOR, OH | The Fasson Roll North America div. of Avery Dennison Corp. worked with ink and inkjet systems manufacturers to secure UL recognition on press inks and inkjet systems.
Avery Dennison worked with ACTEGA WIT, formerly Water Ink Technologies, Flint Group Narrow Web, and Environmental Inks and Coatings to secure pre-approved file adoptions for flexo UV and water-based inks in a variety of high-performance pigments. Avery Dennison partnered with Jetrion Integrated Solutions, manufacturer of industrial inkjet digital printing systems, to gain UL recognition for the Jetrion 4000 series of inkjet systems.
The UL recognition reportedly offers narrow web converters improved speed-to-market capabilities and better overall cost-effectiveness.
Tom Hammer, product manager for Flint Group Narrow Web, explains, “Converters know up front that the inks selected for these applications have already gone through and passed a series of very difficult tests by UL, and thus, they can be confident in using these inks for their UL applications. They are assured that when they submit their own labels with these inks, they will get positive results from UL….”
