Environmentally friendly

Reduced IPA dosage or even eliminating alcohol helps lower VOC emissions, making the printing process more environmentally friendly and compliant with regulations.

FOGRA- & food grade-compliant

ECO3 pressroom supplies meet industry standards for quality and consistency in the printing process, helping to achieve accurate and predictable printing results while minimizing wastage.

Achieve maximum plate productivity

Our fountain solutions contain additives specifically developed to get maximum productivity out of our plates.

We reduced paper build-up by over 70%, thus contributing to increase the useful life of the blankets and also of the plates. We significantly reduced the number and length of interventions such as blanket washing or the use of cleaning products, as well as the printed material’s drying time, powder residue in the equipment, and reworking. Last but not least, it brought stability and safety for all of our operational team, representing an enormous gain in productivity!

Scumming refers to an undesirable condition when ink adheres to the non-image areas of a printing plate and then gets transferred to the paper or printing substrate. This can be a complex issue to troubleshoot, and as this video shows, ECO3 pressroom chemicals can save the day.
