Domino and Futamura Collaborate to Produce Sustainable Laser Coding for Compostable Film Food Packaging
By Neo PR
Domino Printing Sciences (Domino) is pleased to reveal its D-Series CO2 laser coders as an additive-free solution for food manufacturers utilizing NatureFlex™ compostable cellulose films.
Domino has collaborated with global packaging film producer, Futamura, to assess the suitability of laser coding for NatureFlex compostable film products. Following initial suitability testing, Domino’s D-Series CO2 laser was used to code the NatureFlex compostable film and achieved a clean, crisp, white code. There was no impact on film integrity or chemical composition and moisture barrier properties were unaffected.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer Futamura’s food packaging customers an additive-free laser coding solution for their product packaging,” says Dr. Stefan Stadler, Team Lead at the Domino Laser Academy. “We predict that in the coming years, requests for compostable solutions will become more prominent – and we are ready and willing to work with any brand exploring these new materials to help find the right coding solution for their individual requirements.”
