Gravure Ink


Gravure Ink

We produced and sold the Gravure Ink for the first time in Korea and have strived to develop and stabilize new products since establishment.
We have proudly led Korea’s Gravure Ink industry with the advanced technology of TOYO INK, Japan and our localized technology.
Gravure ink is widely applied from soft packages to heavy packages, to construction materials in each industry.

More people are interested in protecting the global environment and Gravure Ink is required to be sensitive to the stability of environmental sanitation.

AQUAECOL SERIES (Water-based Laminates/Universal)

Many people are interested in the ecology of production and consumption related to global environmental production and effective use of resources.
Gravure printing uses a large amount of organic solvents and is restricted by hydrocarbon emission, fire safety laws and occupational safety and health laws, and chemical material control laws.
These restrictions will be strengthened and the society will demand reduced use of organic solvents.
We have developed [JW250 AQUAECOL] and [JW252 AQUAECOL], the water-based laminate ink, for less contaminating gravure printing.
These products are great for laminates and printing and leave less solvent residues after printing for a better work environment.

  • Characteristics
    1. The ink delivers high performance.
      • Widely applied to non-boil and boil ・retort products in laminate printing ( two-solution ink for boil ・retort products )
      • The ink is stable on various laminates, including films coated with treated OPP, treated PED, treated NY, or PVDC.
      • It is highly concentrated, so it delivers volume even when water-based boards is used.
      • Suitable for quality printing with less cratering and clogging.
    2. Great stability and sanitation.
      • Ensures sanitary work environment with no solvent residues.
      • The base ink is not a hazardous material, so it is stable and not restricted by the fire safety laws.
