“As part of Clariant’s commitment to sustainability, we have also developed polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE)-free and renewable-based solutions for the printing industry,” commented Ray Gonzales, Head of Marketing Coatings & Adhesives, Business Unit Adsorbents and Additives. “We see the future of printing inks as a blend of vibrancy and sustainability, where creative expression coexists with environmental responsibility.”
