Coldset Printing Partners
Ecological printing with the highest quality
Coldset Printing Partners invests in the latest technology, namely the waterless printing process. This offers a number of advantages:
- No moisture on the paper and no moisture additives. It is thus less polluting to the work environment and to the final product.
- Much less paper loss at start-up
- Less paper breaks due to the stable printing process (without water) and, consequently, less paper losses.
- Better inks in terms of tack (stickiness), resulting in less ink loss in the production process and thus a better working environment.
- This also means less maintenance and therefore less need for maintenance products.
- In the long run: Inks will be water-soluble and have a much lower concentration of petroleum-containing components.
- Therefore, a lacquer installation at final disposal (for print jobs with maximum printing quality) does not require any drying installation, so there is no gas consumption and no VOC’s.
- Higher print quality
- Higher screen ruling possible
- Larger colour space
- Higher ink densities
- Sharper print image (due to lower dot gain, the image remains clear)
- Higher dynamic range (in light / dark tones)
- Better registry (due to lack of paper stretching from water with conventional offset)
- More stable production process due to less process variables

Coldset Printing Partners has been in possession of the FSC® label since January 2009.
The FSC standard (issued by the Forest Stewardship Council) balances social, economic and environmental interests. Forest management in accordance with this standard, and the associated wood and paper production, relieves forests for present and future generations. The conditions to meet the requirements for an FSC certificate are therefore extremely strict. The goal is to establish a chain of custody, with closely tracking the wood from chopping to the finished product. A specific FSC check is ensured at each step of the production process and at each company involved. Every year, the FSC audit needs to be renewed. A guarantee of responsible forest management. bosbeheer.
