Title:Reducing Ink and Solvent Use in Enclosed Flexographic Inking Systems
Author(s):Monteleone, Doreen
Subject(s):Printing ink -- Environmental aspects
Flexography -- Environmental aspects
Solvents -- Environmental aspects
Abstract:The objective of the flexographic printing process is to transfer solid color, or pigment, while suspended in a volatile liquid carrier, such as water or solvent, to a substrate. The challenge of the flexo process is to do so consistently and efficiently for as long as needed. The focus of this fact sheet is to explain the coinciding environmental benefits of moving from an open to an enclosed ink delivery and metering system.
