Compostable Chips

WHY THEY ARE SO IMPORTANT

It is a consolidated trend in constant growth. The market (both the consumers and the packaging manufacturers) strongly requires sustainable, eco-friendly products. Since its beginnings, MIFAR has been particularly interested in these subjects and aware that the sector players need certified and effective solutions, without compromises.

Like the new Compostable Chips: a specific range of chips designed for printing on biodegradable materials. MIFAR’s Compostable Chips are predispersed in a cellulose nitrate solution and they are suitable for ink producers who print on biodegradable bases, used on a large scale.

MIFAR AND BASF TOGETHER TO GIVE YOU THE BEST

MIFAR has always been looking for the best quality possible by giving its customers excellent products, an efficient customer support and by choosing the highest partnerships. This is why the new Compostable Chips have been developed in collaboration with BASF. The name of this legend in chemistry certainly needs no introduction, but it is essential to point out that the innovative BASF pigments, with which the chips are made, have absolutely remarkable features proved by the most influential and strict certifications in the world.

WHY THEY ARE SO UNIQUE     

The word “Compostable” cannot be used without full awareness: the European Standard EN13432 exactly defines the features that all the compostable materials must have. MIFAR’s Compostable Chips are TUV AUSTRIA certified, in full compliance with EN13432. This means that MIFAR is the only chips producer able to guarantee the use of Vincotte certified Pigments according to EN13432 , which do not contain heavy metals and other forbidden substances. Therefore, MIFAR’s Compostable Chips are classified as innovative, combining environmental respect and outstanding performances. Sure enough, the numerous print tests carried out in offset have provided great results in terms of brilliance and chromatic power.
