Water-based Inks – The Future of flexible Packaging.
Climate change, population growth and rising pollution levels are putting considerable strain on our planet and resources. In response, more sustainable solutions are required from all areas of business. That’s why BASF is joining forces with pioneers from across the value chain to PRETHINK INK: Together with like-minded partners, we want to tackle today’s and tomorrow’s challenges for packaging. We are convinced that water-based inks are the future of flexible packaging.
Over the past many years water-based inks for flexpack have been trialled, but not often accepted by the market. These last few years the discussion on sustainability has intensified and the need for improved technology has grown to control and reduce the amounts of solvents.
Today the print quality of prints made with WB inks can match the ones printed with SB inks. This is the result of a combination of improved resin technology (new insights and use of new raw materials), formulation knowledge (adhesion promotion, use of optimal additive package), innovations in machine design (mainly drying capacity) and printing process (speed, increased viscosity stability of ink).
