One step ahead
During the development of our special
inks we often wondered if it was compulsory for inks to have
certain and in part critical ingredients. We did some research and
asked and received seemingly definite answers:
"We have always done it this way."
"We have to produce it cheaply."
"Nobody is interested in such a small print anyway."
"Generally you can't achieve strong colour strengths and constant
qualities with natural materials.
And extremely blinkered manufacturers even asked for studies, which
would exclude renewable resources for inks. This more than ever
piqued our curiosity. We experimented, tested and finally found
a process to make the versatile inks environmentally friendly and
safe. This is especially good for all people who manufacture or
transport, print and use inks for marking on a daily basis. Our
developments were sponsored by the Deutsche
Bundesstiftung Umwelt (DBU).
One small step for printing,
one giant leap for safety and the environment!
We were impressed by the amazing possibilities of alternative raw
materials so we put the ink chemical system to the test and scrutinised
The results are impressive:
Under the GrüneTinte®
brand many products and preparations for industrial inkjet applications
have been developed from renewable resources.
