Our UV inks and varnishes are free of harmful volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and are cured using Ultra Violet light.

All our UV inks and varnishes are made from non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-carcinogenic and non-reproductive toxic raw materials, which are safe in all probable end-of-life scenarios.
UV inks and varnishes also consume less energy in the printing process, eliminating the need for traditional drying systems.
Due to the fact that UV inks and varnishes do not dry without UV-light, they are 100% recyclable when they are wet and you do not need cleaning procedures (no need of VOC’s and no creation of waste).
TOYO INK Europe invests in renewable raw materials as much as possible in the formulation of the UV inks and varnishes.
The specially developed UV inks and varnishes of TOYO INK Europe also show very good de-inking characteristics, which is important for paper recycling. Therefore, carefully formulated UV inks and varnishes can be recycled when printed on substrates that can be recycled.
TOYO INK Europe is committed to develop, continuously improve, produce and sell UV printing inks and varnishes with the lowest ecological impact for present and future generations.
