Printing Competence Centre

Through numerous comprehensive tests and trials, the Centre produces the very best possible print quality with optimised ink consumption for a variety of Mondi's sack kraft paper, speciality kraft paper and containerboard grades.

Its work is especially important in view of high consumer demand, where attractive point-of-purchase packaging design and fine print give a competitive edge.

For bag applications, the Centre uses a unique ink system called MUIS (Mondi Universal Ink Series), developed by Mondi Bags, to function as a reference standard for ink suppliers and customers. From a range of 15 standard colours, we can create any shade by blending two or three inks.

The Centre can perform these tests (on printed paper):

  • ink rub resistance
  • humidity resistance
  • dynamic friction of printed and / or unprinted paper – slip angle
  • light fastness
  • colour matching: difference ΔE and colour strength difference measured against Pantone or any other printed reference
  • ink viscosity and pH
  • print unevenness – mottling (DOMAS)
  • fibre morphology
  • specific formation
  • standard paper testing – paper strength, porosity, roughness, optical properties etc.
