Printing inks are colored liquids and pastes, formulated to transfer and reproduce an image from a printing surface. Printing inks deliver message, provide protection, and ensure a decorative image to substrate. Moreover, these inks consist of dispersions of insoluble colorants and solutions of dyes in a varnish or vehicle. These inks are also distinguished by multiple processes such as lithography, rotogravure, flexography, and digital printingthe newest process with the highest growth potential. Printing inks industry is essentially based on reputation of quality products and technical service of the company.
