Natural-based Inks Provide a New Path to the Sustainability of Your Packaging


We're committed to improving the sustainability of your packaging.

It’s now possible to approach clean packaging with natural and renewable ink ingredients. In partnership with
INX International Ink Co.® and Sun Chemical®, the development of Natural-based Inks provides a new path to the sustainability of your packaging. Natural-based Inks reduce regulatory risk and provide measurable, reportable CO2 savings.

Natural-based Inks:

  • Aqueous flexographic and gravure inks developed specifically for use on all packaging including food and certified safe in the US, Europe, and Asia
  • Better on-press performance without compromising color or application performance
  • Reduced regulatory risk by using fewer chemicals than standard flexographic inks and do not contain nanomaterials, fluorochemicals, fanal pigments, heavy metals or PTFE
  • Resins used in the inks typically contain between 50% and 90% natural content depending upon the application and intended use. On average this achieves a 25% to 30% lower CO2 footprint when compared to standard aqueous inks*
  • Natural, renewable components in the inks are not derived from food crops and are non-allergenic
  • Available globally through INX International and Sun Chemical®
  • *Based on EUPIA dry ink baseline for aqueous based inks of 3.092kg CO2/kg dry ink
