Typically speaking water-based ink could be considered if your application is to run at slower printing speed and on an absorbent substrate. The water-based ink that consists of
much less organic solvent could provide printers with less VOC emission issues to worry about. At 3R we had a customer that ran solely on water-based ink as VOC emission permits are required in the region. As the sales orders fluctuate from month to month, the VOC emission permit may be insufficient or excessive depending on the order quantity of that month. To avoid this issue, this customer went 100% water based.
