Dissolvable drying assumes a basic job in drying dissolvable based inks during the time spent assembling of bundling material. It is completed at the converter’s end. The dissolvable drying strategy is fundamental to dodge the movement of held dissolvable in the last bundling material into the item, as the last might be hurtful for human wellbeing and furthermore sway the organoleptic properties of the item. Dissolvable based inks are basically utilized for printing items that are to be utilized outside because of their capacity to hold fast to non-retentive materials. Dissolvable based inks are blur evidence, scratch safe, and water verification; thusly, these are reasonable for open air printing applications. Utilization of inorganic solvents and lethal metals, for example, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, lead, and mercury in printing inks effectsly affects nature.
Solvent-based inks take lesser time to dry compared to other organic solvent-based and water-based inks. This, in turn, increases their usage among end-users. Discouraging the use of such inorganic solvents is likely to have a negative impact on the global solvent-based ink market. Implementation of various government regulations that limit the use of solvent-based products such as inks, rise in concerns over shifting consumer preferences toward ‘greener’ alternatives, and the effects of global warming are the major factors restraining the solvent-based inks market.
Various solvent-based ink manufacturers such as Dow Chemicals are focusing on developing low VOC versions of traditional solvents inks. These products possess properties and application characteristics similar to that of conventional solvent-based inks. Furthermore, bio-solvents are developed using renewable raw materials as feedstock, with reduced VOC emissions as compared to traditional solvent-based inks.
The global solvent-based inks market has been segmented based on printing technology, application, and region. Based on printing technology, the global solvent-based inks market has been classified into lithographic, gravure, flexographic, screen-printing, letterpress, and digital. The lithographic segment held leading share of the global solvent based-inks market in 2018. It is widely used across the globe to print large-volume applications such as pamphlets, brochures, newsletters, business cards, catalogs, postcards, full-color books folders, leaflets, company profiles, stationery, and company brochures.
