Solvent inks are solvent-based inks that are applied to a variety of surfaces such as mesh, PVC, self-adhesive film or paper. Solvent inks are particularly suitable for outdoor printing because the ink's formulation is durable, waterproof, scratch-resistant and UV-resistant without the need for additional protective layers. In addition, they are quite inexpensive, so that they are mostly used for large format printing of PVC banners up to 5 m wide. ECO solvent inks contain less harmful solvents, but the printing machine must still have very good ventilation/suction.
