Toyo Ink has launched the Elex-one series of electron beam (EB) curable flexo inks which are volatile organic compounds (VOC) free, making it an ideal solution for food-safe flexible and carton packaging applications.
EB flexo inks do not evaporate or volatise on the printing press, so the ink does not change in consistency during processing. Since ink curing does not occur on the plate, stable print quality can be achieved even over long runs. Free of solvents or photoinitiators, these inks are further non-hazardous and can be used for food packaging materials and sanitary products.
The VOC-free solution provides all these, while maintaining high print quality and performance results required of EB flexo inks.
