EPEA paves the way for safe color on cans



Beverage brand owners who are committed to true sustainability can now go one step further by using ink solutions on their products that are truly safe for human health and the environment.

The new INX AP EcoCan 2-piece inks for beverage cans are the first ink series to receive a Gold level Material Health Certificate. To achieve this, EPEA guided the international inks producer through the development and certification process. Our experts reviewed formulations and raw materials. EPEA Project Manager Wolfgang Schönknecht explains: “For a Material Health Certification on Gold level, products only use positively defined ingredients with no health or ecological risks in the product context.”

This is good news for metal decorators as the AP EcoCan 2-piece metal ink system gives them an ink to achieve a Gold level Material Health Certificate themselves.
