Mimaki sublimations inks get ECO passport

Mimaki Engineering has announced that its Sb54/310/410 and Sb320/420 sublimation inks have achieved the ECO PASSPORT certification from OEKO-TEX.

ECO PASSPORT is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products can be used in sustainable textile production. It authenticates the safety of chemicals used during the production of textile dyes, pigments and finishing agents.

OEKO-TEX is the first system proving the safety of textiles in Europe, and Nissenken is the exclusive certification authority in Japan. Certifications cover each stage of raw materials, product and company environment. The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX product certification has a history of over 20 years, boasting more than 150,000 recipients in the world. The ECO PASSPORT mechanism was established in 1992 by the OEKO-TEX international association headquartered in Switzerland and was the first certification process to validate the safety of textiles.

 

Safety certification of raw materials for the Mimaki inks was achieved through the Nissenken Quality Evaluation Centre. The certification validates OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 compliance, a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. This authentication is very strict and only applies to products that meet over 300 requirements of relevant harmful substances.

The ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX Certification Ink, relates to Mimaki’sSublimation ink “Sb54/310/410” (Certificate No. NEP 1605) and Sublimation ink “Sb320/420” (Certificate No. NEP 1606).
