UPM Biomedicals is excited to announce its collaboration with bioconvergence company CELLINK. The partnership brings together UPM’s expertise for producing non-animal derived, nanocellulose biomaterials with CELLINK’s years of experience in method development for 3D bioprinting, offering new groundbreaking solutions to this growing life sciences market. Advances in 3D printing in the past decade have been outstanding, and the technology is becoming more widely used for various cutting-edge applications. 3D bioprinting is already important in areas such as cancer research, where tumour models can be printed to test their response to different treatments. More recently scientists have been exploring the use of this technology in a clinical setting, with the possibility of printing tissues or organs that can then be transplanted into patients. Using non-animal derived raw materials, such as UPM’s nanofibrillar cellulose, for bio-ink formulations makes transplants into humans much more effective, reducing the possibility of an immune response or rejection.
Designed for both graphic applications and luxury packaging.
Raw materials, functionality and printing techniques are fundamental factors when choosing a type of packaging. With more than 80% of purchasing decisions made at the point of sale, product presentation is key to brand recognition.
This is why Lecta has created a versatile range of SBS graphic paperboard with a silk finish: Diva Art (1-side coated) and Diva Art Duo (2-side coated), for creative, sustainable projects.
Both stand out for their excellent machining characteristics, providing for high on-machine performance throughout production. With consistent smoothness and whiteness, and rich color reproduction, this unique range is suitable for most finishing processes such as screen printing, stamping, flocking or dry embossing.
Diva Art and Diva Art Duo were developed for offset, flexo and digital printing, and they offer excellent finishing and handling performance. Their outstanding print quality for both text and color images make them ideal for creative graphics, communications and packaging projects, including book covers, folders, labels, postcards and greeting cards, or packaging for cosmetics, perfumes and premium beverages.
One of the main concerns of consumers is sustainability, and Lecta is firmly committed to developing innovative, environmentally friendly materials. By using Diva Art and Diva Art Duo for their packaging needs, consumers are making a conscious choice of a natural, renewable and recyclable product.
