Mid West Displays slashes its solvent ink use

Mid West Displays will stop using solvent inks in the manufacturer of its core product ranges after 30 April 2019. The move requires major changes to the way the Shrewsbury-based company makes its bestselling LED lightpocket range, up to now screenprinted but as of the end of the month to be digitally printed using water-based inks. The change will reduce the company’s solvent-ink use by 95%.
Clive Towe, who runs MWD, said: “Changing the way we print our frames represents a significant change for the business but we feel it is an effort worth making to support the environment.”
