SIRANE is now offering ovenable films and pouches printed with environmentally-friendly water-based inks in what the company believes is a world’s first.
We offer a wide range of custom-printed ovenable/microwaveable bags and films – including self-seal and heat-seal cooking bags, stand-up pouches and more.
And now we can offer customers a way to reduce their environmental impact by printing using water-based inks which have been certified for high temperature use.
Peter Ralten, commercial and business development director, said: “Consumer demand for ovenable convenience is growing rapidly and it is essential food cooked in plastic packaging, a very popular way of cooking, is safe. It is great that we have been able the reduce the environmental impact of these products.”
“The NPD team and factory have been working non-stop to get this product out into the market. These ovenable printed films and pouches are truly a great step forward taking the environment, health and safety into consideration.
These are the first materials printed and laminated with water-based inks and adhesives successfully tested by Smithers for ovenable food safety performance up to 220°C (430°F). They are compliant with EU and FDA packaging regulations.
“We believe this is a world first as a laminate, printed with water-based inks and using water-based adhesives, which has been approved for oven use,” added Peter.
