Natural-based UV and LED Inks for Rigid Plastic and Foam-Based Containers

INXhrc RC is a high-performance ink system formulated to replace petrochemically derived ingredients with clean, renewable, and sustainable ingredients without sacrificing machine, processing, and end-use product performance. The UV and LED curable inks are Nestle compliant and designed for printing on non-porous rigid plastic such as dairy containers, cups and most other decorative plastic and foam-based packaging.

  • A 17 to 30 percent increase in bio-renewable content compared to standard petroleum based UV inks.
  • The natural, renewable components in the inks are not derived from food crops and are non-allergenic
  • Free of nanomaterials, fluorochemicals, fanal pigments, heavy metals, or PTFE
