Discover the Evolution of Water-based Inks for Laminated Flexible Packaging Applications

In the flexible packaging converting industry, the move to water-based inks is becoming more and more a reality.

In most regions of the world, converters are requested to minimize or stop the emission of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the environment, with national or local authorities implementing related regulations and controls in places like China, India, Australia, New Zealand and many countries in Europe, Latin America and North America.

Safety is also a major consideration. In all regions, the use of less flammable products helps reduce fire risk and insurance costs.
