What do you Know about Eco-solvent Ink?

Category : Blog

As the name suggests, Eco-solvent ink is environmentally safe. It comes from ether extracts taken from refined mineral oil, by contrast, have relatively low VOC content and are even usable in the studio and office environments as long as there is adequate ventilation. They have a little odor so they can normally be used with indoor graphics and signage.

Solvent ink is not eco-friendly because it has a high content of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which require ventilation and extraction to protect the printer operators, and many of them retain a distinctive lingering smell on the PVC or other substrates, which makes the images unsuited to indoor use where people will be near enough the signs to notice the smell.

Solvent ink: Regular cleanings are mandatory to keep this printer running well. Letting a solvent printer sit around for a few days without maintenance will most likely result in the printer needing a new print head.

Here are a few pointers to help you understand the difference between solvent and eco-solvent prints.

New sublistar eco-solvent inks are based on non-aggressive solvents, which means they don’t produce the same level of harmful volatile organic compounds in the print room as traditional solvent inks. What they do share with the traditional solvent inks, however, is the ability to print on a wide range of coated and uncoated substrates. This makes them the ideal system for outdoor sign applications, as the ink is waterproof, abrasion resistant and long-lasting.

If you’re printing for outdoor applications, you need an ink that can withstand the elements – rain, wind and sun can make outdoor signage look faded and tatty far too quickly if you’ve used the wrong inks or substrate. Eco-solvents offer a solution. These are all subjected to the company’s own stringent durability testing. A panel of three tests includes assessment for abrasion resistance, chemical resistance and outdoor durability. All our eco-solvent inks are highly durable in comparison to latex inks, which require lamination to extend their lifespan.


One of the great advantages of using an eco-solvent ink system is that it can offer a wider colour gamut than latex. As well as the standard CMYK, eco-solvent inks are available in light cyan, light magenta, light black, orange, green, violet, white and even silver or metallic. Typically, you can expect brighter colours and a glossier finish than with latex inks. The reason for this is that eco-solvent inks interact directly with the substrate, so when printed onto a glossy surface the glossy property is retained. In contrast, latex inks lie on top of whatever surface they’re printed onto, giving a matt finish.
