Scodix Makes Food Packaging Enhancement More Accessible than Ever with PolySense 550 Release

Scodix announced the release of PolySense™ 550, a new polymer for digital enhancement developed for the food packaging industry. Compatible with the entire Scodix Ultra portfolio, the polymer is already being used by Italian folding carton producer, Packly, to great effect. 

“The new Scodix PolySense 550 polymer broadens the Scodix portfolio while presenting customers with the ability to further differentiate themselves from the competition – which is crucial on the packed supermarket shelves,” said Guy Alon, VP of R&D, Scodix. “The value of adding digital enhancements to food packaging with the assurance that the printing procedure is safe for consumers according to food packaging standards is a big step forward for Scodix Ultra users.”

Scodix PolySense 550 food packaging compliance refers to indirect contact for low migration. Scodix reportedly capitalized on its four years of experience in manufacturing low migration Scodix PolySense™ for the Scodix E106 press. This development was reportedly validated by the world renowned SQTS Labs in Zurich Switzerland and was tested and approved according to Swiss Ordinance. 

“Scodix PolySense 550 augments existing Scodix applications with the ability to apply it to food-grade packaging. It is a Packly company priority to guarantee 100 percent safe packaging in the food sector, as well as the other sectors we operate in,” said Giuseppe Prioriello, CEO and founder, Packly. “With no set-up, no waste and the fast time-to-market, food packaging digital enhancement has just broadened the possibilities for the industry dramatically.” 

Scodix applications that can use Scodix PolySense 550 include Scodix Sense™, Scodix Foil™, Scodix VDE™, Scodix Cast&Cure™ and Scodix Glitter™. Types of substrates applicable include offset, HP Indigo ElectroInk and Lamination.
