The complete elimination of ingredients that are hazardous to health and environment guarantees safe print products with a wide range of applications.
Thanks to its purity, PURe® can even be used in food packaging printing and is therefore always the right choice. PURe® turns print media into a multi-sensory experience: look and feel, brilliance, vibrancy, and odourlessness inspire in all dimensions.

meets the highest demands.
We strive for minimal negative environmental and social impacts in the production of raw materials for our printing inks.
Using only environmentally friendly and GMO-free raw materials means to especially avoid soy oil, which is widely used in eco-inks. In this way, PURe® helps prevent the deforestation of tropical rainforests for irrigation-intensive plantations, which is common in soy oil production, and preserve biodiversity. We also avoid microplastics to protect the environment and ecosystems.
All PURe binding agents are based entirely on renewable raw materials that are not cultivated in monocultures. The base materials of the resins used in our inks are natural substances without chemical modification.
Almost completely deinkable
PURe® is well deinkable* even on critical substrates and thereby significantly increases the recyclability of print products. PURe® thus makes an important contribution to the circular economy.
The PURe purity guarantee: Pure® does not emit any odour, the formula is 100% free from metal driers, antioxidants and, from 2022 on, even from microplastics.
makes no compromises.
Free from metal driers and photoinitiators
PURe® is free from potentially toxic metal driers and photoinitiators and therefore is not hazardous to health.
PURe® is odourless. For the printer as well as the end user and reader of print products, this means that also potential headaches can be avoided. Due to its purity, PURe® is even suitable for food packaging.
A novel drying mechanism has been developed for PURe®. Our inks require no drying agents and therefore contain no heavy metals. This protects the employees in the printing houses.
PURe® does not contain mineral oil, microplastics, toxic ingredients, or genetically modified organisms. Because of this, PURe® protects against health damages, especially when used in contact-intensive print products such as children’s books and food packaging.
Exceeds legal standards
With its unparalleled pure composition, PURe® by far exceeds the legal requirements for printing inks.
indulges the senses.
Brilliant colour effect
The excellent PURe print quality equals the brilliance of UV inks − for print products that inspire, convince, and sell.
The exceptional vibrancy of PURe inks enhances the look and feel of every print product. PURe coatings and PURe metallic inks, which do not require hazard labelling, also create iridescent or glossy effects.
With PURe®, a three-dimensional effect can be achieved, especially on uncoated substrates.
No odour emissions
Media printed with PURe inks are free of unpleasant odours. Therefore, PURe® is perfectly suited for usage in the food and cosmetics sectors.

speeds up processes.
The PURe ink system can be used without ink change for both commercial and food packaging printing. PURe® does not emit unpleasant odours during the drying process and is therefore suitable for all paper grades. With PURe®, you can also print on aluminium and sheet metal.
Since the PURe formula does not contain any substances that are hazardous to environment or health, PURe® does not require any hazard labelling.
The unique drying properties of PURe® shorten downtimes during further processing and thus also decrease delivery times.
Thanks to its outstanding colour and process qualities, the PURe ink system opens a wide range of design possibilities. It is a source of inspiration for printers, brand owners, and advertising agencies.
New ink technology
PURe® is a novel ink system, setting new standards for printing inks by using primarily environmentally friendly raw materials to create print products of the highest quality.
Purest ink system
PURe® dispenses with unsustainable raw materials and ingredients that are potentially harmful to humans or nature to an extent that is unparalleled in the market.
PURe printing inks are not limited to conventional offset printing, but also show their strengths in waterless offset printing. Further developments like printing on aerosol cans are already in use.
Thanks to its novel drying system, PURe® achieves the short drying times of radiation-curing offset inks, but without the energy-intensive drying process. PURe® dries generally much faster than oil-based inks, so that printed products can be further processed after very short downtimes.
