Product description

FEATURES: VarniFlex FoodGrade is a colorless, self-crosslinking, 1-component aqueous dispersion overprint varnish, partially bio-based (45%) for carbon footprint reduction, and widely certified for food contact, according to European Regulation EU 10/2011. Food contact varnish with gloss finish, formulated with modified acrylic copolymers, free of Bisphenol A (BPA free), APEO, formaldehyde, phthalates, heavy metals, etc.

VarniFlex FoodGrade BioHybrid as a self-crosslinking OPV achieves its best performance for printed food packaging with a short drying time at 80°C. Ideal balance of physicochemical performance in its category: 

  • High resistance to moisture and grease.
  • Excellent transfer, wetting and leveling.
  • Excellent adhesion, resistance to dry and wet rubbing, and compatibility with water-based and solvent-based printing inks.
  • Good resistance to tack-blocking, with good static and dynamic COF coefficients of friction.
  • OTR barrier function (depending on substrate).
  • Excellent gloss finish.
  • Low Voc. Non-hazardous goods for use and transport by road, sea or air.
