Although, the water based inks exhibit several superior properties, due to which it is widely adopted in various industries. Water based inks is highly restricted in alkaline environments, such inks cannot wet and print smoothly on difficult substrates owing to high surface energy of water molecules. Additionally, water based inks cannot wet and print smoothly on complex substrates because of the water component's high surface energy. These are the couple of factors majorly hampering the growth of the global water based inks market. The above mentioned factors hamper the growth of the water-based inks market.
  • Take large amount of time to be cured when compared with non-water based printing inks
Water-based printing inks take considerably large amount of time to be cured when compared with non-water based printing inks. The water-based printing inks printed on a surface, certain temperature must be reached and held to completely dry the solvent used for printing. Though the printer can print the desired image quality and image onto a wide range of substrates, they cannot be done simultaneously, reducing the speed of the printer. This creates an obstacle to used water-based printing inks, thereby restraining the growth of the market.
