Water-based printing inks

Water-based printing inks for paper packaging and board packaging

Whether food packaging, paper carrier bags or tea bag tags - our water-based ink systems are suitable for gravure and flexo printing on coated and uncoated papers. The environmentally friendly formulated inks are smoothly integrateable into production processes and make an important contribution to sustainability.
