The new sustainable ink option is formulated with 20-30% plant-derived materials, allowing brand owners and printers to benefit from reduced regulatory risk and measurable and reportable CO2 savings.
BSR-Bio is an advancement of the original BSR formulation that has enjoyed much success in North America on Barberán Jetmaster digital printers. The Jetmaster manufactured by Barberán S.A. was developed to bring inkjet advantages to the market for not only corrugated boxes, but point-of-purchase display as well. It is available together with SAKATA INX BSR and BSR-Bio digital ink solutions globally.
SAKATA’s proprietary advanced technology for nano-pigment dispersion enables its inkjet inks to have high-performance jetting properties at very fast print speed, with high reliability for inkjet print heads. BSR-Bio consists of standard CMYK colors with Orange + Green or Orange + Violet as an option when wider color gamut is required. It is extremely low odor and has high durability and good flexibility to reduce cracking problems.
Barberán S.A. has manufactured numerous types of inkjet printers in the market to bring valuable solutions for short-run, on-demand printing. It is now expanding its digital printing possibility with the BSR-Bio UV ink, which is intended for environmental sustainability.
