I echo Marcie's comments below. We have reviewed a few screen
printers that use UV inks. at least one only uses UV
inks for the same type of applications mentioned in the
original question. At first I was concerned about safety
and the other issues raised below and in the original
question. But in the more modern plants with trained
personnel, I feel that the inks are safe and result in
VERY little waste. One concern came up over the toxicity of
a specific component in some of these inks for labels that
are put on consumer products. I can dig up specifics
on this if anyone is interested. We could not find any
toxicity information on the specific component in question
that would raise a red flag.
