Five inkjet inks from HP Scitex—used for sign and display printing—have been added to the official list of those that meet the chemical requirements of the Nordic Ecolabel (also known as Nordic Swan) for print service providers (PSPs). PSPs that have been granted Nordic Ecolabel licensing for the production of printed matter have demonstrated that they fulfill a number of environmental requirements that make them some of the least polluting PSPs in the Nordic region printing industry.
The Nordic Swan is an ecolabel used in the Nordic countries, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway. It was established in 1989 and is used mostly for groceries and cosmetic products. The newly approved inks include three UV-curable inks: HP Scitex XP222, HP Scitex TJ200 and HP Scitex FB221; HP Scitex WB300 water-based ink, and HP Scitex TJ100, a solvent ink.
