Approximately 30 printing managers from Berlin, including many company directors, obtained information on sustainable ink systems like the new sheetfed offset printing ink PURe, without hazard labeling, on March 5, 2019. In commercial printing, it is especially PURe that offers print companies completely new possibilities, in order to orient itself towards the growing sustainability awareness of the market, customers and society. PURe has much to offer here, for one thing, because of its pure recipe based on renewable raw- materials without photoinitiators and also because it is free of potentially toxic metal dryers. It also offers fast printing production without additional energy-consuming drying systems.
The Berlin-based printing experts wanted to know more about the experiences of the first PURe customers in the Benelux countries, Switzerland and in Germany. Other questions involved de-inking, the absence of hazard labels and the necessary drying systems.
