Plastic corrugated packaging typically is printed via screen print or digital print. As most in the industry know, both are slow and expensive printing processes.
With BCM’s EekoPlast inks, you can print directly onto plastic corrugated with your current corrugated press. No additional machinery or processes are required. EekoPlast inks adhere well onto plastic corrugated and have excellent rub resistance. EekoPlast inks clean up similarly to other water-based inks.
As an added benefit, BCM’s EekoPlast inks are environmentally correct. They are produced from paper residue, contain no heavy metals, have little to no volatile organic compounds and are shipped in reground plastic buckets, reused 55 gallon drums or returnable totes. EekoPlast inks save three gallons of petroleum and 60 pounds of carbon dioxide per 450-pound drum of ink. EekoPlast also is a viable alternative to soy or other vegetable commodity-based inks.
