Flexographic inks are used in printing packaging materials, including cartons, corrugated containers, paper and plastic bags, food containers, newspapers, catalogs and more. Flexography printing method continues to grow in popularity because of its simplicity and environmental friendliness. The most important part of the process is the application of the ink. Flexographic inks consist of colorants, which may be pigments and soluble dyes along with a binder and various solvents. Both Solvent based and water based inks commonly contain various types alcohol as the primary solvent or drier. Alcohol rapidly dries through evaporation and contributes to VOC emissions. The inks may also contain glycol ether and/or ammonia which facilitate drying. As each year passes, more water ink technology has come to fruition to meet the challenges. Each passing month brings more technology to ink makers, further enabling them to meet the demands of their customers. Changes in substrate coatings and new resins and slip additives for films have also contributed to producing substrates that are more receptive to water inks. These include replacements for very popular products now specified that are not very receptive to the water technology. Water-based inks are now a viable option for flexographic printers. Waterbased inks provide an alternative to these solvents and a means of eliminating both pollution and many of the regulatory constraints on the printer. The most important element in a decision to switch to water-based inks is a commitment from management. If management sincerely wants water to work, it will make the necessary changes and provide adequate training of personnel to make it happen. Flexo inks are used primarily in furniture laminates, construction materials and carton box packaging. India is the fastest growing print industry after China and Japan.
