Profile:

  • The Center For Ink Technology's mission is to educate students in the formulation, manufacture, and evaluation of printing inks and to do research in the formulation, manufacture, and evaluation of new printing inks and the relationship of the properties of inks to performance on the printing press and to print quality. Pollution prevention through the development of printing inks, which are non-polluting and safe, is emphasized in our education and research. The Center can develop inks for all printing processes (including nonimpact methods). The faculty associated with the Center have extensive industrial experience and can provide practical insight into ink/paper interactions. Seminars and short courses are planned for the industrial and government community in the areas of ink technology and pollution prevention.
