Solvent Lamination and Surface Ink


Toyo Ink has developed an almost universal system. Flexiversal is a solvent-based printing ink system formulated for excellent print quality, multiple film versatility and high-performance properties. It is designed to run as a lamination ink and surface ink after a wax compound addition.
