Printers that use UV ink are better for the environment, according to an industry commentator.

The products allow for machines to print more copies in less time and contain less of the harmful chemicals found in regular printer ink, office supplies commentator myofficeportal has said.

Harmful chemicals known as VOC's are known to evaporate into the air during the printing process, an accumulation of which could cause adverse effects on the environment, the website added.

Whereas UV inks are free of these, old-fashioned printer inks can contain as much as 60 or 70 per cent of these ingredients, which also increases waste due to loss of the ink itself.

"Unlike traditional printer inks, you will be able to use 100 percent of the UV ink for your printing purposes. This is without sacrificing the quality of the print output. You can also use the printer ink for a wide array of purposes – whether for business documents or for outdoor purposes," the site added.
