Drying performance at the highest level: HUBERGROUP revolutionizes with eco-perfect-dry

With the help of extensive research work, the international printing ink manufacturer hubergroup has succeeded in launching a particularly fast drying and environmentally friendly ink series: ECO-PERFECT-DRY. The Cradle to Cradle silver certified sheetfed offset inks, which enable the print product to be processed quickly, are ideal for commercial printing.

For the development of the globally available ink series, hubergroup carried out extensive tests in order to optimize the drying process. For this purpose, the ink specialist cooperated with the German company Onlineprinters to examine the processes in practice. Bernd Groh, Global Product and Portfolio Manager Sheetfed/UV at hubergroup, explains: “It was important for us to exactly understand the interaction between the drying parameters and the drying performance – that’s why we speak of drying kinetics. Thanks to this knowledge, ECO-PERFECT-DRY has a unique drying speed which helps printers speed up processes.”

Additionally, hubergroup paid particular importance to the eco-friendliness of the product. Consequently, ECO-PERFECT-DRY is not only cobalt- and mineral oil-free, but also has an optimised CO2 balance. Therefore, the Cradle to Cradle silver certified printing ink is ideal for environmentally conscious companies.
