ACTEGA Introduces Sustainable Silver Coatings That Deliver Sterling Results
- Five WESSCO® POLAR UV silver coatings offer a range of sustainability and premium quality benefits
The WESSCO® POLAR UV Silver coatings are well-suited to a range of paper-based print and packaging applications including food and other sensitive packaging types, thanks to properties such as low migration and compliance with Swiss Ordinance and Nestlé requirements. Customers also benefit from reduced lead times and improved cost efficiency due to the avoidance of time-consuming material ordering and extended delivery periods. The high costs associated with metallized or TransMet boards are also eliminated.
Andreas Käfferlein concludes, “The efficiencies and environmental benefits of the WESSCO® POLAR range strongly support ACTEGA’s company-wide goal to support advances towards more sustainable print production. With this new range, we can offer yet more coatings that will support our customers’, and their customers’, sustainability objectives, while delivering the high quality required by these companies and brands. It’s a truly exciting addition to the ACTEGA product portfolio and we’re looking forward to seeing the many creative applications that our customers will produce as a result.”
