Adhesive labels – Production. Testing. Application. l Basic course 13.06 – 14.06.2022

Modern self-adhesive labels consist of a multilayer combination of coated and uncoated base papers, plastic films, pressure-sensitive adhesives and printing stocks. The diverse possibilities in the composition of this composite lead to end products with diverse property profiles.

Learn about the interaction of the individual components as well as the testing of such material composites using a variety of measuring methods in the basic course “Adhesive labels – Production. Testing. Application.”

Part 1: Production and processing

  • Production and properties of pressure sensitive laminates, papers for labels, plastic films.
  • Further processing: die cutting, printing and finishing

Part 2: Material testing

  • Test methods for pressure sensitive laminates, labels and labelings
  • Relevant measurement methods for assessing the material properties of pressure sensitive laminates, e.g. FINAT methods, surface and optical properties

Part 3: Topics relevant to the industry

  • Research projects PTS
  • Sustainability and Recycling
  • Current challenges of the label industry

Recycled & Fiber-Based l 29.-31.03.2022

In the course of avoiding plastic, the desire of users as well as end consumers for fiber-based packaging is increasing. Due to legal requirements such as the Single Use Plastics Directive of the EU as well as the German Packaging Act, paper and cardboard packaging are booming.

Learn within 3 days from our experts in the fields of Materials Testing & Analytics, Recycling & Digitization and Functional Surfaces:

  • the various regulatory and technological requirements for recyclability,
  • the biodegradability of fiber-based packaging,
  • the food safety, eco-labeling and misleading requirements placed on packaging,
  • the technological possibilities of finishing paper and board to achieve required packaging properties, such as barriers (gas, grease, moisture, migration), forming and printability

Paper & Board for Food Contact

New regulations for paper and board in food contact have been in force in Europe and Germany in this year 2021. Do you ask yourself, what future impact does the German Printing Ink Regulation have on Paper & Board Food Contact Materials? And does the Council of Europe Resolution on Paper and Board (2021) fill the gap of missing EU legislation?

Answers and insightful information will be provided by Katharina Adler from the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft (BMEL)) as well as Matthias Henker representing the European Printing Ink Association (EUPIA) in their presentations. Christa Hametner from AGES (Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety) will introduce details regarding the Council of Europe Resolution on Paper and Board (2021).

More Topics, Questions & Answers:

At the conference further questions will be asked regarding the topics like European Single Use Plastics Directive, regulations in other countries, remarkable substances and viruses as well as bacteria. Answers will be provided by recognised speakers in interesting presentations on these topics, which you will find in the programme!

Paper, cardboard and paperboard in contact with food

Food comes into contact with many materials before it is consumed. These so-called food contact materials (FCMs) should be sufficiently inert so that their components do not affect consumer health or food quality.

In the online workshop “Introduction to Conformity Work and Quality Assurance for Paper, Board and Cardboard for Food Contact”, our experts will provide you with insights into legal requirements as well as practical examples for your company’s processes for fiber-based materials.

  • Regulations on food contact materials in Europe
  • Requirements for paper in Germany
  • Practical implementation of the requirements
