Ink Companies and Disclosing Proprietary Information on Formulations

Brand owners and converters are seeking more information on what is in the finished ink, and ink companies are trying to be as transparent as possible.

David Savastano, Editor ink world :
Meeting regulatory mandates is a major issue for the ink industry. Brand owners and converters want to know what is on the inks they are using, and  ink manufacturers note that customers and CPG companies are asking for disclosure of proprietary information on ink formulations. These requests have to be handled judiciously.

George Fuchs, NAPIM’s director of regulatory affairs and technology, said that requests for detailed compositional data are becoming an increasingly common issue in the US.

“In other geographic regions outside the US, it is either a requirement or a common industry practice,” Fuchs added. “Within the US, this type of disclosure of compositional information generally occurs only under a legally binding, non-disclosure agreement between supplier and customer.”
