Dielle BIO 8770
The low migration and extremely low odour series
for food packaging
Consumer’s care and safety are one of our first target and for this reason food should not be contaminated by any external substance.
Within this frame we keep in mind that all the components of our inks must not migrate inside food-packaging. Our ink series Dielle BIO 8770 has all law requirements to be used in printing for non-food contact surface.
As partner of important printing producer for food packaging, we produced a mineral oil free series based on natural renewable raw materials, completely dedicated to print on food packaging support. This series is low-odour, low-migration and with no heavy metal based driers.
Migration could happen in three different ways:
1) Direct migration.
2) Set-off migration due to paper stacking.
3) Gaseous migration.
Framework Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 related to materials and articles intended to come into contact with foodstuffs provides the basis for the assurance of a high level of protection of human health and of consumers’ interests in relation to food packaging, whether printed or not. The manufacturer of the final packaging has the responsibility for the compliance of the material and article with the legal requirements laid down in Article 3:
Materials and articles must be manufactured in compliance with good manufacturing practice so that, under their normal or foreseeable conditions of use, they do not transfer their constituents to foodstuffs in quantities which could:
- endanger human health;
- bring about an unacceptable change in the composition of the food;
- bring about a deterioration in the organoleptic characteristics thereof.
The 8770 series comply with the regulations below
- EC Regulation n. 1935/2004
- EC Regulation n. 2023/2006
- Swiss Ordinance 817.023.21
- The series comply with the requirements for printing inks for food packaging
- Low migration and extremely low odour
- Low selling
- Suited for printing work corresponding to ISO 12647-2
- Good performance in the stack
- Ideally suited for gloss coated papers and board

*The assessment of the colour properties was made under standardised printing conditions. In individual cases, under special conditions, as in printing with very high ink densities, the classification of certain properties may be different
Dielle BIO 8770 is an high quality series with no particular printing problems. Inks penetrative setting, the absence of driers, antioxidant and additives makes this series to be overvarnished for facilitating drying. Overvarnishing makes this series rub resistant.
Offset printing ink for food packaging
Extreme good press stability, excellent rub resistance, perfect dot gain. Very high press density. To be overvarnished to achive a good drying. Drying doesn’t cause lowering level of press density. Waiting time before printing is in general longer that other standard ink, depending on the quality of support and specific conditions could be tested. Please contact us for further technical collaboration in printing.
Dielle BIO 8770 series is semifresh: good properties at normal pressroom temperature for 16-24 hours.
keep drying to avoid contamination.
Take away from heating sources
Fount solution should be added slowly in particolar when ink has low covering effects.
Aspect: viscous liquid
Viscosity: 250±10 Poise
Specific pound: 1.1±0.1 g/cm³
Dielle BIO 8770 series comply with EUPIA guide lines on food packaging inks.
Never add driers to the inks or fountain solution.
The nip volume of the anilox roller should not be less than 13 cm3.
We recommend testing the suitability of the substrate for the printing of food packaging
If there is a need for tack reduction, for example when printing on sensitive substrates, use only special REDUXPASTE BIO 7128
Heating of printed packaging in the oven has to be carefully considered due to the potential appearance of temperature peaks. In contrast, microwave heating of packaging without acceptor laminate is not-critical. Generally the heating of packaging to temperature exceeding 200°C must be avoided.
Odour and migration tests
Odour tests have been performed as follow:
Method C UNI 10192
Method E UNI 10192 (Robinson test)
Migration tests have been executed based on standard DIN EN 14338 on 180 g/m2 paper.
The test revealed that the migration of substances fell below the 60 ppm limit (EC 10/2011 PIM) by a factor of more than 10 (Referring EU convention whereupon 6dm2 packaging surface correlates with 1 Kg food)
