hubergroup Print Solutions with UV innovations at the IST UV Days 2023

From 4-6 July, 2023, hubergroup Print Solutions will be presenting its broad portfolio of UV inks and varnishes for offset printing at the eleventh IST UV Days in Nürtingen, Germany. On this occasion, the international printing ink specialist will also showcase some innovations: for example, the company will be presenting its recently restructured portfolio for non-absorbent substrates, which is now formulated to be sensorially neutral and PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene)-free.

In addition, hubergroup will be holding a session called “LED rocks Coldset” together with printing press manufacturer, Koenig & Bauer; UV equipment supplier, IST Metz GmbH and publishing house, Aarauer Zeitung / CH Media on July 4. This round-table format will focus on NewV news, hubergroup’s LED UV ink series for newspaper presses. 

On the first day of the IST UV Days, hubergroup will accordingly spotlight energy-curing web offset printing. Thanks to the further development of the UV LED lamp technology, high-quality, commercial-like print products can now also be produced on rotary presses. Together with Koenig & Bauer, Aarauer Zeitung / CH Media and IST Metz GmbH, the ink specialist will be presenting the results achieved on coldset presses within this partnership. Visitors to the in-house exhibition can thus gather impressions, examine samples and listen to first hand experiences. 

At its stand, hubergroup will also be presenting its broad portfolio for UV sheetfed offset printing. This includes UV inks and varnishes as well as fountain solution additives that are perfectly matched and suitable for a wide range of food and non-food applications. The NewV poly (MGA) and NewV tin (MGA) ink series and the NewV lac (MGA) varnish series have recently been formulated PTFE-free to meet the requirements of major brand owners and to be prepared for future specifications in global markets. In addition, the NewV lac range no longer contains benzophenone, which is a controversial substance due to its potential carcinogenic effects. Last but not least, there is a new series for the metal packaging segment called NewV tin LED, which comprises UV inks and varnishes for LED drying.  

Roland Schröder, UV Offset Product Manager at hubergroup, sums up: ‘We have a number of innovations in store for you and are therefore very pleased to be back at the IST UV Days. I cordially invite you all to visit us at our stand to discuss your requirements and our extensive products as well as services.’
