Environmental impact of UV inks and varnish
Toyo Ink Europe is a leading manufacturer of low energy curing inks and varnishes which are driving a positive environmental change in the printing industry.
Our inks and varnishes are free of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and are cured using UV or LED light. We are maximizing the use of renewable or recycled source materials wherever possible and reasonable. All our inks and varnishes are made from non-mutagenic, non-carcinogenic and non-reprotoxic raw materials.
Low energy inks and varnishes also consume less energy in the printing process, eliminating the need for traditional drying systems.
Due to the fact that these inks and varnishes do not dry unless put under UV-light, they are 100% reusable when wet and thus require less cleaning cycles (less VOC’s and creation of waste).
Toyo Ink Europe invests in renewable raw materials as much as possible in the formulation of its low energy inks and varnishes.
The specially developed low energy inks and varnishes of Toyo Ink Europe also show very good de-inking characteristics, which is important for recycling.
Toyo Ink Europe is committed to develop, continuously improve, produce printing inks and varnishes with the lowest ecological impact for present and future generations.
