Sustainability has surely been a word in the business industry right now. Each brand, including Limited77, is working hard to make its products as green friendly as possible. As for irreparable global warming began to appear on our planet, countries, companies, and consumers began to do more reliable work. Almost all brands across the spectrum are improving in response to the requirements of a more environmentally friendly production.
Although the printing industry keeps growing, there is a significant change. Print professionals, entrepreneurs, and customers are getting better aware of the environment, which therefore becomes their printing habit.
This sense of environmental responsibility also applies to the type of ink used for printing. While traditional inks often emit Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), the print works can be detrimental to health and ozone-depleting, while environmentally friendly inks do nothing. There are various different kinds of environmentally-friendly inks, one of the most common is UV ink:
UV ink - This curable screen-printing ink type is a 100% solid system. This means it contains no solvent that evaporates during the curing step. Curing occurs as a result of the interaction of the ink components with a strong ultraviolet (UV) light. Known as a photomechanical process, ink is hardly absorbed into the paper stock. UV allows green printers to use non-toxic ink as opposed to solvent-based ink. Since there is no solvent, UV inks can be successfully applied to both flexible and rigid substrates. As a result, more equipment manufacturers are launching inkjet printers that use UV inks. Because of being UV inks, they are actually weather-resistant, making them ideal for long-term outdoor use, unlike some vinyl and laminate.
All our iPhone, Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel phone compact case products and inks in Limited77 company are produced sustainably, and we are working to reduce VOCs while working to reduce our waste. Each case type is evaluated individually so we can figure out how to complete it in the most environmentally friendly way.
In the past, consumers were impressed by good-looking products, not paying much attention to the impact on our environment. Today, they are much more conscious and want packaging practices that do not leak harmful chemicals into their bodies and do not pollute the planet by sitting in a dump or in our oceans. They take great pride in having a product that will not harm the environment in any way. In fact, a study by Fairtrade International with 5,000 participants across Europe found that most purchasers take into account a brand's sustainable practices when making decisions.
In a worldwide economy, we all need to include 3Rs (Reduction, Reuse, and Recycle) for all residual inks and adhesives that are on the shelves. That's why ink and adhesive formulators, suppliers, manufacturers, and citizens, are now taking on an important role in managing the environment by reducing VOCs, streamlining processes, and making packaging safe for everyone. Limited77 supports these associations and partnerships on a global scale that will be key to the journey to create a 100% sustainable printing and packaging industry.
