Lincoln Printing offers customers the environmentally sound option of using inks made from soybean oil rather than petroleum-based products. Soy ink is naturally low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), chemical compounds that can cause air pollution.
Soybeans are a low-cost, renewal source of soybean oil, and growing soybeans actually has a beneficial effect on the environment. The waste generated from soy ink is more easily and cost-effectively treated than petroleum-based ink waste.
The use of soy ink has many other benefits, including the production of rich, vibrant colors, rub-off resistance, lithographic stability, and heat resistance when used in laser-based reproduction.
