Technical Abstract: The current United States market for news inks is greater than 500 million pounds, for sheetfed inks is greater than 100 million pounds, and for heatset inks greater than 400 million pounds. The worldwide market for these inks is estimated to be at least twice that of the domestic market. Because of this significant potential market, we formulated news, sheetfed, and heatset web offset inks using 100% vegetable oil based vehicles. Physical properties and performance of these inks meet or exceed the industry standards.
