Re: Metals in Printing Ink

The metals were phased out in the '80s.  By 1986, my local client was using inks that were free of RCRA metals.  Earlier than that, Borden decided its solution to surface impoundments for waste from manufacturing same was to replace the metals in the inks and avoid the metal contamination problem.

I have a question regarding the color inserts in newspapers (I believe it's a flexographic process). Does anyone know if they still use metal inks in printing these? Does anyone know when they were phased out if they were? I have looked on the print-tech archives, and didnt' see it answered, and posted a question, but it didn't seem to get a response.

Anyone have any suggestions?
