Inks for digital printing
Customized inkjet inks for labels & packaging
Siegwerk is one of the leading global providers of inkjet printing inks and coatings for labels and packaging applications.
Digital printing for packages
The requirements in packaging printing are continuously evolving. In this context, digital printing and especially inkjet printing has gained traction and credibility over the last few years as a variable and viable printing method for a wide range of industrial and commercial printing applications. Today, inkjet printing is one of the most widely used digital printing processes for primary or secondary packaging, enabling businesses to respond faster and more successfully to customer requirements.
Safety and conformity in inkjet ink development
For Siegwerk, product safety and conformity are also top priorities in the development of inkjet inks. Our migration optimized UV inkjet solutions are among the best on the market today. By using a proprietary technology based on reactive monomers and polymeric photoinitiators, we always ensure that our inkjet inks comply with all relevant regulations and guidelines, enabling the lowest migration risk possible. Furthermore, all used ingredients not only follow diligent raw material introduction processes, but also are continuously measured and evaluated by dedicated experts to ensure the highest level of quality.
Today, we do not only offer the development of perfectly tuned solutions of inks and complementary primers or OPVs, but also develop any CMYK, CI or other desired spot color solution on demand – always meeting the individual needs.
Providing the first drop of a customized ink is usually the last step in our deliberations as we define our work by supporting customers in achieving their individual goals. Whether this means to enable sustainable packaging design through innovative ink solutions, to comply with regulatory and product safety requirements or develop reliable application-driven solutions and processes, we are there to support our customers and partners with innovative inkjet ink solutions.

Siegwerk’s Inkjet solutions for industrial packaging
Siegwerk focusses on developing ink systems for piezo drop-on-demand inkjet.
Our offering includes customized UV and water-based inkjet inks, primers and overprint varnishes (OPVs) for a wide spectrum of substrates from labels, paper and tissue through corrugated board and folding cartons to flexible film packaging.
Whether water-based or UV inkjet is the best technology depends on the application. Water-based inkjet is particularly suitable for thin or porous substrates and is predestined for applications with high demands on product safety and conformity. All our water-based inkjet ink solutions also have a content of bio-renewable raw materials of >50%, generally making them an ideal candidate for sustainable packaging in the sense of a Circular Economy. UV inks are particularly suitable for thicker substrates and application with high demands on brilliance and gloss as well as ink film fastness.
