We use clay coated news and clay coated Kraft paperboard grades, in all calipers, which are made from 100% recycled content with a minimum of 85% post-consumer fiber content or de-inked recycled fiber content.
To support forestry efforts, Supreme Graphics offers Forest Stewardship Council®(FSC®) certified paperboard stock to our customers. Customers that choose this option can display the FSC logos on their cartons and share their environmental commitment with the world.
Clean air is important to Supreme Graphics. While the industry standard is over 500 grams per liter of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), 100% of our solvents have 100 grams per liter or less of VOCs!
Supreme Graphics uses soy and other vegetable-based inks which are less harmful to the environment than their petroleum-based counterparts. Soy and vegetable products are used in ink for their oils, which act as the vehicle for the ink pigments.
Water Base Coatings
Water base or aqueous coatings fulfill a variety of needs for the printing, and packaging industries. They can be used to provide gloss, abrasion resistance, controlled COF and many other functional properties. These coatings are also "green" or environmentally friendly as the VOC content is generally very low or negligible in quantity. In addition, water base coated paper can be recycled very easily. The materials are non-yellowing and possess no residual odor.
