You like it or hate it: the smell of a freshly printed book or newspaper. Where does the odour come from? Learn more about Haltermann Carless sustainable printing ink distillates.
You like it or hate it: the smell of a freshly printed book or newspaper. Most of this smell is due to a certain type of molecules in the printing ink solvent, so called aromatics. These molecules are potentially harmful to human health, the environment and complicate recycling of paper products. The trend goes towards a reduction in aromatics and even for mineral oil free printing ink solvents. Always a step ahead, Haltermann Carless offered these ink solvents even before the trend was born. Reading a book is still a pleasure – even without the aromatics and their odour.
Haltermann Carless offers printing ink distillates with very low aromatic contents. We will further reduce aromatics by treatment of our raw material in the new hydrogenation plant in 2020. As early as 2015, Haltermann Carless offered printing inks distillated based on renewable sources.
