An investigation of methods to reduce solvent emissions, for the printing of flexible packaging substrates
Fedele, Vince (1994) An investigation of methods to reduce solvent emissions, for the printing of flexible packaging substrates. Research Master thesis, Victoria University of Technology.
The flexographic and gravure printing houses are the major suppliers of flexible packaging substrates, which are principally based on solventbased ink systems. The Environment Protection Authority (E.P.A) has issued a Code of Practice, in 1990, that targets the Victorian flexographic and gravure industry, with guidelines that suggest an 80% reduction in solvent emissions by the year 2000. This thesis investigates the technologies available to the flexographic and gravure industries to comply with this Code of Practice.
