Characteristics and Advantages of Soybean Ink (Part 2)

⑤Good inking property
Compared with heatset soy based printing ink or waterless offset printing ink, the drying speed of soybean oil ink is slower. However, from the practical results, the transferability of the ink is good, the ink in the field is good, and the dot color of the bright tone is uniform. After the ordinary offset ink reaches the paper, the solvent penetrates fast, and the ink film will break off in the part near the paper surface, while the 4 color soy printing ink has a slow penetration and the peeling surface of the ink is more Close to the side of the blanket, it means that the thick ink film is transferred to the paper surface, so the amount of ink transfer is increased.
⑥Excellent laser resistance
When the printed matter needs laser resistance, soy ink is the best choice. Its boiling point is much higher than the volatile components of petroleum. When the ink is heated by a laser printer or copier, it will not volatilize and stick to the paper, nor will it pollute the parts of the printer.
Vegetable ink is not a non-renewable resource like petroleum-based ink. For example, soybean oil contained in soybean ink is a sustainable and biodegradable rich resource. It can continuously provide raw materials for ink production and has good environmental protection. The use of vegetable oils (such as soybean oil) to replace some petroleum-based mineral oils to make inks can promote the industrial use of vegetable oils in various countries and expand the application of vegetable oils.
⑧Comprehensive printing costs are low.
The study found that soy oil based offset printing ink is easier to deink than traditional ink, and the paper fiber damage is less, and the quality of the recycled paper is good. Using this feature of plant inks, waste paper recycling has fewer waste materials and lower recovery costs; the waste plant ink residues after deinking treatment are easier to degrade, which is conducive to sewage treatment and controls the quality of discharged water. Soy ink has a wide range of colors, rich and bright colors
Li, a small amount of ink can show the effect that a large amount of traditional ink can show. In addition, because the traditional ink contains organic compounds, in order to avoid environmental pollution caused by rabbits, its disposal has become a problem that plagues ink manufacturers and printing plants. However, soybean ink can be backfilled and mixed in new ink, which is not only beneficial to environmental protection, but also reduces production costs.

Conducive to energy security
The oil that traditional inks rely on is a non-renewable resource. With the large amount of use, it is increasingly depleted. The energy crisis has become the first problem facing humanity. Many industries have turned their attention to renewable plant resources, such as biodiesel. The soybean oil in vegetable inks is natural, can be infinitely regenerated, and can be biodegraded. It has unparalleled advantages from traditional inks in terms of resource utilization and environmental protection.
