Printing ink set off testing with food simulant E (Tenax); analysis with GC-MS

Printing ink set-off can occur on the reverse side of printed labels, lids, cups and packaging film, either in a stack, or in the reel after printing. This creates a potential that low molecular weight substances could be transferred to the unprinted surface of the packaging that makes contact with the packed contents.
