Ink developer NUtec Digital Ink has achieved Greenguard Gold accreditation for select products within its Amethyst UV-curable roll-to-roll and rigid ink ranges, certifying them for use in schools and healthcare facilities.
Greenguard certified products have been rigorously tested and according to NUtec are proven to meet some of the world’s most demanding chemical emissions standards intended to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure, leading to healthier interior environments.
The Greenguard Gold certification standard is the highest level achievable for health-based chemical emissions criteria, requiring lower total volatile organic compounds (VOC) emission levels, ensuring that products are acceptable for use in sensitive environments.
NUtec Digital Ink is proud that its Amethyst A20-RTR UV-curable inks for roll-to-roll printing and its Amethyst A20-RIG UV-curable inks for rigid media have recently been tested by UL Solutions, a global leader in applied safety science, and have been approved for Greenguard Gold status.
“Being listed on UL Solutions’ SPOT website, one of the largest sustainable product databases globally, means NUtec Digital Ink Greenguard Gold certified products may now be specified with confidence for use on furniture, walls, floors, building materials and interior décor items used in educational institutions and hospitals,” NUtec Digital Ink head of sales and marketing Darren Claassens said.
Referenced in numerous building standards and specifications around the world, UL Greenguard Gold certified product usage can also contribute to the achievement of points in established green building rating systems, demonstrating a company’s commitment to people and the environment.
