What is Eco-friendly ink


The printing industry is growing by leaps and bounds. As we move towards a more eco-friendly environment, several changes and advancements are being made. One of those changes is the development of usage of eco-friendly inks. By switching to eco-friendly ink, we still get the high printing quality without the harmful additives found in traditional inks.

By using traditional printing cleaners, inks and additives, we are contributing a constant population that is emitted from printing businesses. Not to mention many of these chemical and petroleum based solutions are harmful to the health of those using them. By choosing more eco-friendly versions, businesses can not only save money but also protect themselves, their employees and environment. Many printers are switching to eco-friendly inks.

At Khang Viet, environment responsibility is the key factor of our sustainability and developing. The primary targets are developing new products of toluene-free inking system, water based printing ink on plastic substrates and vegetables-oil based Offset printing system. There are environmental ink systems available:

 Toluene-free Gravure ink
 Toluene-free and MEK-free Gravure ink
 Water based surface Gravure ink
 Environmental friendly water based Flexo ink for paper
 Soy based and UV Offset ink

The printing industry is standing up and taking notice when it comes to printing with inks that are safe for our environment and safe for us all. While eco-friendly might slightly higher in some cases than traditional ink, companies save money in long run when it comes to cleanup and disposal costs. So eco-friendly should be taken into consideration when you want to provide quality and make a different to the world we live in.
