Tissue World Magazine

Follmann, the printing ink experts for table decoration products will be presenting its water-based printing inks for table decoration products and its comprehensive services for the first time at Tissue World in Milan, the world’s largest trade fair for the tissue industry. The company will be located in Hall 3, Stand C630.

Whether for napkins, tablecloths or placemats – Follmann’s brilliant water-based printing inks not only meet the regulatory requirements associated with short-term, direct food contact applications, but also meet the highest demands for high-quality printing results. Printing inks are winning over users worldwide thanks to their environmental compatibility (e.g. VOC-free), their brilliant colours, excellent adhesion and fast drying speed. Produced as a ready-to-print (one-component) ink system, the printing inks can be processed easily and safely. In addition, even at high printing speeds using chambered doctor blade systems, there is no foam formation and they meet primary aromatic amine requirements.

But Follmann not only scores with its premium products – its perfect service is just as impressive. “We offer our customers on-site analyses, colourimetry and process optimisation as required, and advise them on the implementation and financing of dosing systems,” explains Oliver Steinitz, Sales Manager at Follmann. “We also show them solutions for the reuse of residual inks and the potential savings which can be achieved by means of recycling.”

Tissue World is the ideal platform for Follmann to showcase its water-based inks to a broad, international audience of professionals, thus boosting its global growth. “We invite all trade fair visitors to come to our stand to find out more about our products and our services,” says Steinitz.
