taurus-inkAvient Corporation has announced the launch of Zodiac™ Taurus™ non-PVC inks, the third offering in the Zodiac™ brand collection of eco-conscious screen-printing inks. The Zodiac™ portfolio now includes non-PVC inks, silicone inks, and water-based inks.

Eco-conscious Options for Textile Printing

Zodiac™ Taurus™ non-PVC inks can create the sustainable garments that consumers seek, while providing the durability and feel expected by brand owners and printers. At the same time, there are no performance tradeoffs with traditional plastisol ink. Comprised of a combination of bases, additives, pigments, ready-for-use (RFU) colors, and special-effect inks, the Zodiac™ Taurus™ family of non-PVC ink solutions also deliver the convenience and printability of traditional plastisol ink systems.

We are thrilled to introduce the next addition to our Zodiac™ line of eco-conscious inks,” said Tito Echiburu, general manager of Avient Specialty Inks. “The entire range was developed to offer our customers an easy way to convert to non-PVC technology.”
