SCRIPTANE® PW Range for offset inks

Scriptane PW 24/27H, 25/28H, 25/33H, 26/29H, 28/32H, 30/35H

Picture Range Scriptane

Products in the SCRIPTANE® PW range, manufactured and marketed by the Special Fluids business line, are made from different grades of distillates with a very low aromatic content, well below that of the most commonly available products. They are used as solvents in the formulation of offset inks. Offset printing, also known as offset lithography, is the most widely used printing process in the world today. The many applications include catalogues, magazines, books, advertising flyers, newspapers, food packaging, cardboard boxes and paper.

The Total Ecosolutions Advantage

SCRIPTANE® PW products used as solvents for offset inks were compared to standard products used for the same purpose (mostly petroleum distillates with an aromatic content of around 10 to 30%). The different grades in the SCRIPTANE® PW range have a very low aromatic content. Their polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) content in particular is well below that measured in competing products containing aromatics.

The Environmental Performance

Compared to the market standard:

Between 60 and 535 lower PAH content (expressed in benzo(a)pyrene equivalent)

The health performance of SCRIPTANE® PW products and standard market products was evaluated by analyzing their “priority” PAH content, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the World Health Organization (WHO) classification.
