This document sets out of some guidance for the safe use and handling of printing inks and related products that contain cellulose nitrate (commonly called nitrocellulose or NC).
Printing inks (and related products) based on nitrocellulose represent a very common and versatile solvent ink type in rotogravure and flexographic printing of packagings. Nitrocellulose, as a basic binder plymer, is essential for a number of required properties in packaging (pigment wetting, heat seal, resistance, solvent release, etc.).
