SAKATA INX Introduces Eco-Friendly UV Inkjet Ink For Corrugated Packaging


BSR-Bio is an advancement of the original BSR formulation. The new sustainable ink option is formulated with 20-30% plant-derived materials, allowing brand owners and printers to benefit from reduced regulatory risk and measurable, reportable CO2 savings.

The Jetmaster, manufactured by Barberán S.A., was developed to bring inkjet advantages to the market for not only corrugated boxes, but point-of-purchase display as well. It is available together with SAKATA INX BSR and BSR-Bio digital ink solutions globally.

SAKATA’s proprietary advanced technology for nano-pigment dispersion enables their inkjet inks to have high performance jetting properties at very fast print speed, with high reliability for inkjet print heads. BSR-Bio consists of standard CMYK colours with Orange and Green or Orange and Violet as an option when wider colour gamut is required. It has extremely low odour and has high durability and good flexibility to reduce cracking problems.

Barberán S.A. has manufactured numerous types of inkjet printers in the market to bring valuable solutions for short-run, on-demand printing. Now they are expanding its digital printing possibility with the BSR-Bio UV ink, which is intended for environmental sustainability.

Eladio Lerga, who is responsible for the Jetmaster, commented, ‘We have been a good partner with SAKATA INX for years, and have created successful projects together. Corrugated packaging is one of the most suitable applications for the circular economy concept, and I am excited about the environmental impact BSR-Bio brings to the market.’

Yoshiaki Ueno, Director – CTO, SAKATA INX said, ‘BSR-Bio is a marketable product formulated based on SAKATA INX core technologies and long-term experience with a wide variety of materials. The market needs for sustainable product solutions will continue to grow based on societal needs to protect the planet and develop a circular economy. BSR-Bio is a strategic product for a circular economy as it is part of our Botanical ink® product line. It meets many environmental requirements including waste and greenhouse gas reductions.’
