Today's global industry is developing at an alarming rate, and the industrial pollution it produces is also startling. Have Poisonous products, industrial waste water, waste gas, solid waste, etc. are gradually engulfing our homes. Environmental protection has become deeply rooted in people's hearts. People realize the importance of environmental protection for sustainable development.
As one of the leaders in packaging and printing, Goofy is committed to contributing to environmental protection. Our expertise lies in finding the most practical and reliable environmental solutions for you. Our commitment to sustainable development is the foundation of our success. Goofy is an industry leader in innovation and sustainable development. We take social responsibility as a core value and strive to persist throughout the company. From raw materials, working environment, and ecological footprint, we are committed to conducting business with ethics and integrity.
We can work hard to ensure the 100% environmental quality of our products and reduce the environmental pollution of printing.
1. We choose environmental protection ink
1)We use water based ink
This ink uses water and ethanol as solvents, has extremely low VOC emissions, and does not harm human health. It is the only ink approved by the American Food and Drug Association among all printing inks. In addition, it also has the characteristics of non-combustibility, bright colors, non-corrosive plates, good adhesion, and strong water resistance. It should be noted that water-based Shan ink is generally alkaline. Therefore, waste water such as cleaning ink tanks, ink rollers, and printing plates should be added after precipitation of acidic substances, otherwise it will cause water pollution.
2)Water-based UV ink
Water-based Uv ink was born in this background, it uses ethanol
And water and other diluents. This ink has the good environmental protection characteristics of the above two inks.
3)New environmentally friendly ink
For example, vegetable oil ink, currently the most used is soybean oil. American Soybean Oil Association Standards
The regulations stipulate that the content of soybean oil in sheet offset printing inks is more than 20%, and the content of soybean oil in rotary offset printing inks is more than 7%. Japan's Osaka Printing Ink Company also recently launched a new type of environmentally friendly ink, a sheet-fed offset printing ink, 100% vegetable oil ink based on soybean oil, which meets environmental protection requirements.
2.Develop and use pollution-free film and developer
Since current laser imagesetters are still everywhere, the use of silver-containing films has become an inevitable problem. Wastewater contains silver ions during fusing, which can cause damage to the environment. The hazards of the developer should not be ignored. The developer contains hydroquinone and other harmful drugs. Long-term contact can cause hair loss, redness of the skin, and serious eye diseases.
We develop dry film imaging technology, using a special film to solve the above problems.
It has no traditional film exposure and development process, and can be imaged without any chemicals, so it is called "green film".
3. Use CTP and digital proofing
Computer-to-plate technology directly outputs graphic information after RIP to the printing plate through the computer.In addition, the film as an intermediate link is removed, which reduces the output, development, fixing and steps such as printing, greatly reducing waste liquids containing silver and hydroquinone, which are harmful to humans and the environment.
Emissions also reduce the harm of ultraviolet light to the human body and the pollution of the air, which brings the gospel to environmental protection. This technology has undoubtedly greatly accelerated.The pace of printing towards environmental protection.
4. Vigorously promote flexographic printing
Flexible printing due to its good printing quality, a wide range of substrates, low input and high efficiency,An important reason for the advantages of good environmental performance is that it uses water-based inks and does not contain toxic organic substances, which is in line with the green development trend of modern packaging printing. The biggest feature of water-based ink is that it significantly reduces VOC emissions, thereby reducing atmospheric pollution and improving the working environment of the printing shop. Because of its environmental protection characteristics, it is especially suitable for packaging and printing of food, beverages, pharmaceuticals and other items.
In short, because flexible printing uses environmentally friendly green materials, to achieve green printing, our factory vigorously promotes flexographic printing.
5. Vigorously develop the digital printing market
Since digital printing is directly from the computer to the printed matter, no film or printing plate is needed, eliminating
Many intermediate steps of traditional printing are avoided, and the use of toxic chemicals such as developing solutions is avoided. Digital printing uses a new imaging technology, which can largely avoid a series of problems caused by the volatilization of organic solvents in the process of image and text transfer in traditional printing. The main imaging principles of digital printing are as follows.
6. Inkjet printing
Inject the ink from the fine nozzle to the substrate at a certain speed, and finally pass the ink
The interaction with the substrate realizes the reproduction of the ink image. According to the inkjet method, it is divided into continuous inkjet and on-demand inkjet. Is an environmentally friendly printing process.
7.Environmentally friendly coating
Post-printing glazing is the same as laminating, which can protect the cover and improve the gloss of printed products. Environmentally friendly varnishes are not harmful to the human body. At present, they have been packaged in cigarette labels, wine labels, food packaging bags and other products. It is widely used.
In addition to the above several main approaches, as long as we have an intention in production practice
People will also find more ways to improve the printing process and achieve green printing.
Because green printing is not only related to the long-term interests of the printing industry itself, but also to the coordinated development of the entire society. In order to achieve sustainable development of the printing industry, formulate a reasonable plan according to its actual situation
