Alcohol-free Printing house


All use of isopropanol at United Press printing is now out, with this we achieve both environmental and quality gains.

United Press Printing is in the Swan labeling processes and one of the criteria for the Swan labeling is that the use of isopropanol (alcohol) is reduced.

United Press Printing, however, has gone much further than that, and has cut out all use of alcohol in the printing process, making it one of the few printers in the Baltic States that have done it so far.

This change has been received very well by the staff in the production, as it provides a tremendous improvement of air quality. Removal of isopropyl alcohol in the print production requires a high degree of control over the process.
