We have Eco solvent inks, these inks appeared in 2000 as an alternative due to the intense smell and high toxicity previously offered by solvent inks, thus these inks have a pleasant composition, friendly to the planet, They do not release volatile organic compounds towards the atmosphere, do not represent any danger to people's health, therefore, they do not need security measures beyond those normally established for the handling of non-toxic chemical substances. They also help the economy and the useful life of the printing equipment, since being a less aggressive product, the printing heads can double their operating time and also without high costs for cleaning and maintenance that are observed with other types of inks. (see more in the "Supplies and raw materials" section)
Eco-solvent ink printers are ideal for office and indoor use as, as stated before, they do not need ventilation. The outdoor shelf life of plastics printed with eco-solvent inks range from 18 months to three years, as opposed to five years for solvent inks. In previous years the intensity of the ink was lower than what we know today from companies such as Sinocolor or Galaxy did not have coverage on the investigations with these inks. Thus, advances have been made, such as opaque white and metallic eco-solvent inks.
The inks have a high thermal resistance, which provides them with fast drying and greater handling by personnel. For lamination it is necessary to wait 24 hours so that the paint adheres to the material and the bubble effect does not occur.
Not to be used: On non-absorbent substrates
Type of printers: piezoelectric heads, which work by means of a roll of paper and also with a hybrid configuration from 50cm to 5 meters.
