Published on 2014-04-24. Author : SpecialChem

ACTEGA Rhenania will be represented at this year's interpack trade fair, held in Düsseldorf from May 8, 2014 to May 14, 2014, together with its sister companies ACTEGA DS, ACTEGA Terra and ECKART, in Hall 11, Booth A12. The focus will be on the presentation of the following trade fair themes: BPA-free, sterilization-resistant baking systems (pigmented, food-safe), PVC and BPA-free hot seal coatings for aluminum and plastic foils, PVC and BPA-free adhesive coatings for closures, heat seal coatings for printing equipment, laminating adhesives (solvent-borne, high-performance PU adhesives), and aqueous universal printing primers for printing presses.

In addition, R&D, service laboratory and marketing department at ACTEGA Rhenania have made it their aim to demonstrate clearly their great experience and expertise in the area of color variety coupled with food safety compliance in relation to the specific coating and adhesive systems. The object is to provide the packaging developer with ideas as to how the myriad types of food packaging (aluminum, tin, foil, etc.) can be improved (or be better coated and laminated) in terms of color/color effect. Interestingly, color variety and food safety compliance are not at odds here.

Customers and interested parties from the specialist fields (coating of aluminum foil, tin, plastic foil and paper) will acquire at the booth of ACTEGA Rhenania a comprehensive overview of these new products and developments for these constantly expanding markets. ACTEGA Rhenania maintains supply relations and partnerships with the top addresses of the converting industry and has committed itself long-term to the company strategy of providing tailored customer solutions.


ACTEGA is a division of the internationally active specialty chemical company ALTANA. ACTEGA Coatings & Sealants develops and produces coatings and sealants, printing inks and adhesives for flexible and rigid packaging and for the graphic arts industry. These products not only lend an attractive appearance to materials such as paper, paper board, plastic and metal, but also provide clearly defined chemical and physical properties to the materials' surface.

Graphic Arts: The main customers for the products ACTEGA develops, manufactures and markets are in the packaging industry. ACTEGA is the market leader in overprint varnishes and is the technological leader in the rapidly expanding sector of water-based sealants for flexible packaging. ACTEGA products not only ensure that the packaging will look appealing, but also that the contents will remain fresh longer.

Converting Specialties: ACTEGA is already the world's leading vendor of sealants for closures and glass containers; ACTEGA is also the technological leader when it comes to water-based sealants for cans. These products are used to make seals between the contact surfaces, such as glass on metal (bottle closures) or metal on metal (can lids). They ensure that the contents and other substances such as CO2 remain inside the packaging while “locking out” all contaminants.
