Flexography -Reply



Hervé Logé,

Per your recent post here are some information sources to review:

- Look at the U.S. EPA's  Design for the Environment (DfE) Flexography Project at:  http://www.epa.gov/opptintr/dfe/flexography/flexography.html

- Printer's Environmental Assistance Center:  
http://www.pneac.org/sheets/flexo/flexo.html

- Printco Industries in the U.S.A  makes doctor blades and may be able to help you on your question.  Their address is:

I am looking for studies on estimations (in percentage of reduction of VOC
 emitted) of P2 measures in flexography, namely what is the percentage of
 VOC reduction due to the use of doctor blades in comparison with printing
 without doctor blades. Same question about : use of high solids inks, use
 of enclosed doctor blades chamber, use of anilox roll with reduced
 volumes, automated ink mixing system, automated viscosity control system,
 etc...
 
 Thank you for your help,
