Printing Inks for Toys

Toys must be colourful and appealing, but the ink must also offer outstanding resistance to chemicals and mechanical strain.

Marabu inks have been developed especially for this demanding application: free of heavy metals in line with DIN EN 71, part 3, they meet manufacturer specifications and legal requirements.
