Standard Series

In 2006, Explorer Pressroom Solutions ® dedicated itself to designing chemistry that was not only effective and efficient, but mindful of the user’s health and the wellbeing of the environment. Our commitment to create safer chemistry became our standard, and the result of our commitment was the development of our Standard Series of products. These products contain less than 500 grams/liter 1 of VOCs, and most of them meet or exceed a range of environmental, health and safety requirements.


Sustainable Series

Did you know?

VOC emissions released into the ambient atmosphere effect ambient air quality. This is perhaps the single largest impact a printing operation has on the environment. 2


In 2007, Explorer Pressroom Solutions® began developing our Sustainable Series of products which contain less than 100 grams/liter of VOCs and continue in our standard for formulating pressroom chemistry that is more user and environmentally friendly. These products are designed to increase your pressroom’s sustainability by reducing your VOC and Hazardous Air Pollutant emissions, thereby minimizing your pressroom’s impact on ambient air quality, the atmosphere, and the environment.

Standard Series


Our Standard Series products were designed to meet the South Coast Air Quality Management District’s 2005 definition of Low VOC chemistry. These products contain less than 500 grams/liter of VOCs for standard lithographic applications, and less than 505 grams/liter of VOCs for UV applications. In addition to the lower VOC content of these products, many of them satisfy health and safety requirements established by California Proposition 65, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the National Toxicology Program (NTP), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and SARA 313. Our Standard Series products are perfect for pressrooms that may not need to have the lowest of VOCs, yet have a concern for using chemistry that is mindful of their staff’s health and well being.
