We use only natural inks, free from any chemicals.
Most printers use plastisol ink consisting of chemicals derived from petroleum. Although being more simple to use, plastisol inks contain PVC and phthalates, two dangerous chemicals very damaging to the environment and have been linked to numerous medical disorders. The plastisol inks also require the use of harmful solvents in the printing process and various ozone-depleting chemicals that contribute to the greenhouse effect.
Our inks do not contain PVC or phthalates and don’t need solvents to clean the screens down after they’ve been used. Only water is used throughout the process – from printing to cleaning.
Our inks do not contain any chemicals known to contribute to the greenhouse effect and ozone depletion, unlike many products commonly used in other types of inks such as chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), Hydrochlorofluorocarbon (HCFC), aromatic hydrocarbons or other volatile solvents. They don’t contain lead or any heavy metals. In fact, Permaset Aqua inks do not contain any toxic chemicals at all ! Not even mineral turpentine like other water based inks on the market.
Our ink is approved by the highest industry standards for environmentally certified and health safety.
