Doneck ‘Green life ink’ for Caps Cases

UK based Caps Cases is now using water-based printing inks which are formulated with renewable resources and tailored to post-print, from the Doneck Network. Apart from the excellent printing results, this product innovation is characterised by outstanding running properties in the printing unit, machine stability and easy cleaning behaviour.

The project, which was managed by Stephen Walsh (Doneck UK) and Wayne Booker (Caps Cases), was accompanied intensively by Doneck UK’s application technology laboratory as well as the R+D laboratory at Doneck Euroflex S.A.’s headquarters in Luxembourg.

“The conversion to the new Doneck inks was outstanding and the team performed professionally. The ongoing service and support from the British ink laboratory is fantastic,” said Wayne Booker.

“The advantages to our customers are quite obvious; the use of the innovative ink system reduces the respective carbon footprint for the customer’s factory, enhancing its own environmental balance, adds Stephen Walsh.

Commenting on this move, Edgar Becker, Managing Director Sales, Doneck, said, “This allows us to offer our customers a sustainable, water-based, extensively field-tested ink system with excellent colour performance for corrugated printing. Our customers are able to manufacture products for the circular economy.”

Doneck has sustainable inks, blends and varnishes for the following paper applications: post-print corrugated cardboard (WKH), paper sacks and paper packaging (WPN), pastry bags (WSN), envelopes (WXN) and gloss varnishes (WUR).
