Vegra products

Environmental protection in the pressroom

Our fountain solution concentrates, and cleaning agents are VOC-free, corrosion-tested by FOGRA and approved by the press manufacturers. VEGRA’s fountain solution concentrates ensure printing without alcohol, offering environmentally friendly alternatives in the pressroom.

In addition, VEGRA provides water-based dispersion coatings that are approved for direct contact with food and have been tested and approved by ISEGA.

Our printing auxiliaries help enhance the printing process, such as optimisation of ink-water balance or rub resistance. We strive to always offer innovative products that ensure high printing quality and are environmentally friendly at the same time.

VEGRA Recycling Concept

The VEGRA recycling concept for Rapid Washes represents an ecological way to optimise costs, improve the eco-balance and actively protect the environment. Through this concept, VEGRA adds a significant contribution to the careful and responsible use of our resources. Our recycled Rapid Wash products display all the properties of the original product, such as effectiveness and corrosion protection.

VEGRA is a licensed recycler and not a waste disposal company. The waste generated during the recycling process is properly disposed of in accordance with the regulations of the authorities. The entire recycling process is accompanied by our quality control during the entire process from receipt of goods to release of the finished product.
