Why Hongsam Developed Water Based Latex Ink
Nov 30,2023

It can be directly said that the market benchmar of Hongsam environmentally friendly water-based latex ink is UV ink and eco-solvent ink. The most important point is the environmental protection characteristics. Customers who have been exposed to UV or eco-solvent printing know that UV ink will be more irritating. Smell, even the printed picture will continue to emit a pungent smell. This pungent smell is volatile organic compounds VOC. The smell will irritate the eyes and nasal cavity, and if exposed to the ink for a long time, the smell will enter the human body through breathing and dissolve in the blood, and cannot be eliminated from the body, slowly causing eye irritation, blood damage, central nervous system damage, and kidney damage. Therefore, all packaging bottles of UV ink produced by regular factories have warnings on the degree of harm to the human body. Not only ink, but also LED purple light, which can cause irreparable damage to the human body, especially the eyes. Therefore, this has also resulted in workers being unwilling to work, making it difficult to recruit workers, and unable to effectively accumulate factory-related talents. More importantly, it is in opposition to the national policy of green production and environmentally friendly production.

Why develop Environmentally Friendly Water-based Latex Ink?

Environmentally friendly water-based latex ink is environmentally friendly. There is no odor either during the printing process or in the finished product. It effectively improves the environmental quality of the product and caters to market needs; improves the production environment and reduces labor risks; there are no flammable consumables, reducing production fire risks . It has the advantages of adapting to the diversity of printing media and image durability, and is especially suitable for industries with extremely high environmental requirements such as decoration, wallpapers and murals. It is a functional ink that represents the future direction of inkjet printing.

In the UK, latex inkjet printing is popular. The share of latex inkjet printers increased from 26.34% in 2017 to 34.41% in 2019, an increase of nearly 10%. This growth is echoed by the results of a market survey, which stated that the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of latex printing volume from 2016 to 2021 was 10.3%, while the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of solvent printing volume was -23%.

ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION Environmental Protection Leads the Future

Water-based latex ink printing technology does not add any low-volatile solvents to the ink and uses environmentally friendly water-based resin pigments to ensure no odor and VOC emissions; the drying and curing process does not require UV curing and no ozone pollution, thereby improving the safety of the working environment. It protects the health of operators; at the same time, it does not pollute the atmospheric environment and reduces resource consumption.

HONGSAM LATEX INK Fills the Gaps and Deficiencies in the Market (If you need samples, please contact us)

In addition to its outstanding performance in the advertising and printing industries, Hongsam digital environmentally friendly water-based latex ink has many special textile fabrics in textiles, which also make up for some shortcomings and market gaps. In order to meet the functionality of fabrics, many processes such as blending, special weaving, compounding, and coating are used, such as down jacket fabrics, sun protection fabrics, fly-woven fabrics for shoes, etc. These fabrics are difficult or even impossible to use digital printing technology. Digital printing dispersion, coating, acidic, and reactive processes do not work well on these materials. The latex solution can solve this problem well with its powerful functionality.

Case 1: Leather shoe material application case

Leather shoe materials involve problems such as bending and gluing. In the past, some customers used ultra-fiber shoe materials using UV printing technology. There were problems with bending and cracking, patterns falling off, and problems with degumming when the uppers and soles were glued together. After understanding Hongsam water-based latex printing solution, the above problems can be completely solved. Currently, this process has been adopted by well-known domestic sports brand shoe manufacturers and put into mass production. In the future, you will definitely see many shoes made using latex printing technology in the shoe material market.

Case 2: HDPE Nonwoven Paper Application Case

HDPE nonwoven paper using UV printing has also been a common process in the market in the past two years. It can be seen that HDPE nonwoven paper bags printed using UV have some problems in terms of color fastness, pungent odor, and bending and friction. After rubbing and rubbing, patterns appear. Powdered exfoliation. This is a sample using the latex printing process. It can be seen that the latex-printed DuPont paper has no damage to the pattern after being kneaded, washed, and rubbed. At present, latex printing HDPE nonwoven paper technology has been generally recognized by target customer groups at home and abroad.
