EGP partnership certificate to RKW Finland

publication date: 2018/09/27

In the picture: Tapio Alanko from Marvaco awarding Markus Seppälä, Ari Hiltunen, Juha Lähdetkallio and Jani Viikilä from RKW Finland with the EGP certificate.

RKW Finland Ltd, a Finnish manufacturer of high-quality packaging films, received the EGP partnership certificate in September 2018. The company received the certificate as a recognition for its successful implementation of a greener and more flexible flexography process. The certificate was awarded by Marvaco, the pioneer in EGP technology.

RKW Finland has successfully adopted EGP (Expanded Gamut Printing) in collaboration with Marvaco and Siegwerk Finland. The certificate is awarded for the high quality and outstanding process efficiency of the prints, and it is proof that the packaging printing done with the EGP technology has been excellent, batch after batch.

The introduction of expanded color gamut to packaging printing, implemented by Marvaco Ltd. and it’s American strategic partner company, CSW Graphics Inc., has advanced to the stage of awarding partnership certificates to printing companies. In the certification, the printing companies’ use of the EGP technology is tested and evaluated based on various packaging jobs implemented with process inks. This modern printing process allows brand owners to improve both the quality and the greenness of their packages.

The EGP technology enables high-quality, efficient and more ecological printing without manually mixed inks. Predictable and precise brand colors are achieved through digitally assisted ink mixing. The color gamut is enriched with additional OGV (Orange, Green, Violet) inks, which more than doubles the number of color shades compared to the Pantone+ color series and allows clean implementation of even the brightest shades. With EGP’s digital color mixing, the brand colors that have been restricted by the CMYK method in the past can be implemented in a more extensive, more controlled and more precise manner, batch after batch.

The other advantages of the EGP technology include the co-printing of different motives at the same time. Brand owners in Finland and elsewhere in the world are moving on towards EGP.
