Water-based Coating

All our facilities are capable of printing using soy ink. Soy ink is a ink made from soybeans. As opposed to traditional petroleum-based ink, soy-based ink is better because it is A) more environmentally friendly B) available in brighter colors C) improves the life span of the printers D) makes it easier to recycle paper and E) more economic in the long run.

Soy ink is a helpful component in paper recycling because it can be removed more easily than regular ink from paper during the de-inking process. This allows the recycled paper to have less damage to its paper fibers and have a brighter appearance. The waste that is left from the soy ink during the de-inking process is not hazardous and it can be treated easily through the development on modern processes.
