INX International Ink Co. (inxinternational.com) has come out with INXhrc natural-based inks, which offer numerous advantages that reduce regulatory risk for brand owners and printers and improve production efficiencies for printers and converters.
The natural-based water, solvent and conventional offset inks use fewer chemicals compared to traditional inks. INXhrc inks do not contain allergens, nanomaterials, flurochemicals, fanal pigments, heavy metals, latex or PTFE.
HAVI, an innovator in packaging for leading foodservice brands, presented an opportunity to align on the mutual recognition of the many benefits that could be derived from natural-based inks. Working together with INX, they developed the right formula for the market; an innovation in more sustainable packaging.
Acknowledging a 25 to 30 percent lower CO2 footprint than conventional inks and reduced regulatory risk for brand owners and printers, the global company’s endorsement of INXhrc represents another aspect of the clean food movement and the principle of simplifying materials and chemistries for safer, more environmentally friendly packaging.
