gift box printing

  Ink is the most common in our lives, the traditional ink includes the main components (resin, color) and auxiliary components (filler, diluent, diluent, anti-crust agent, anti-printing agent, slip agent, additional additives) composition. However, the pigments and additives in traditional ink contain large amounts of heavy metals such as lead and mercury, as well as the aromatic hydrocarbon solvents commonly used in ink, which can leach into the air as the ink dries out. These gases are extremely toxic and can cause great harm to human health. However, as people become more environmentally conscious, the demand for eco-friendly ink has increased. Here are three eco-friendly inks commonly used in gift boxes to replace traditional ink.

UV ink

  UV ink is a type of ink that can be dried and cured by UV light of different wavelength and box energy under UV irradiation. UV ink, because it does not use solvents, cures and dries extremely quickly, and its contamination is nearly zero during printing. As a result, it is also a highly environmentally friendly ink.. In addition, UV ink, with its bright color and extremely excellent wear resistance, can effectively improve the visual appearance of the box and its service life.

Water-based ink

Water-based ink is also commonly referred to as "ink painting".It is made mainly from water-soluble resins, organic pigments, solvents and related auxiliaries by composite grinding. As the water-based ink is used as a dissolving carrier, nearly no volatile gas is produced and no environmental impact is expected.  As a result, water-based ink is commonly used as a strict packaging ink for children's products, food, medicine and additional requirements.

Soybean ink

  Soybean oil is common in our lives, soluble in nature after decomposition, non-toxic and harmless.. Not only is soy ink extremely environmentally friendly compared to traditional ink, its bright color, shine, stability, dryness resistance and additional properties are also extremely excellent.. While large-scale use of soy ink has begun in the United States, Japan and other countries, China has been relatively late to the game.  However, soy ink will slowly develop in the domestic market as awareness of environmental protection gradually increases.

  The trend of using eco-friendly ink when customizing packaging boxes is becoming more evident as the country promotes environmental protection. Compared with conventional inks that can volatile harmful gases, eco-friendly inks will considerably reduce ink pollution to the environment.
