Cork Industries launches sustainable UV coatings

August 13, 2013

Benefits include reduced odor before, during and after curing.

Cork Industries, Inc. has announced the development and introduction of Green20, one of a series of eco-friendly, UV coating products where conventional petrochemical-based materials are being replaced by renewable bio-resourced materials. Benefits of Green20, the company says, include a lower safer HMIS 1, 1, 1, B rating, and a significantly reduced odor before, during, and after curing, reducing air quality concerns and liability, and appealing to pressroom and print end users.

Touted as being competitively priced, high gloss Green20 excels for in-line coating over heatset, UV, hybrid, and offline on primed conventional inks printed on a wide variety of substrates. It is 100% reactive, solvent-free, zero-VOC, fast curing and energy saving. Non-flammable, it is being safely shipped & stored in round, stackable, non-returnable, recyclable totes.
