The new IROCART LMQ (low-migration-quality) package-printing ink is designed to prevent or dramatically limit the migration of chemicals in the ink formula within the barriers of a food package. The co. notes that, under strict testing, packaging printed with the new ink shows no ink oil in the packaged contents. It adds that process colors and a mixing system are available together with suitable fount additives and a specially developed water-based coating, which can be used for conventional offset printing on a wide range of substrates.
