The issue surrounding a low VOC ink for this type of application hinges on the use of the final product. SGIA is working with the state to gather more detailed information on the product under development. Unfortunately, the screen printing industry cannot meet the requirements as listed in the surface coating standards. These requirements were not developed with graphic arts processes in mind. As we consider the industry a part of the graphics arts industry, we encourage and work with states to develop standards the accurately reflect the technologies available to the screen industry. I will keep the listserv updated on activities in this area.
