Switzerland-based large-format printer manufacturer swissQprint announces that its current range of UV inkjet inks are now GREENGUARD and GREENGUARD GOLD certified. That means printed products made with them are safe for use in schools and hospitals.
GREENGUARD certification ensures that products for indoor use comply with strict upper limits to chemical emissions for a healthier room atmosphere.
According to Underwriters Laboratories, “Products that have achieved GREENGUARD Certification are scientifically proven to meet some of the world’s most rigorous third-party chemical emissions standards, helping to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure.”
According to UL, GREENGUARD GOLD sets even stricter certification criteria with added emphasis on the safety of at-risk groups such as children and the elderly. This ensures products that are suitable for use in places such as schools and healthcare facilities. Both the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design building rating system (LEED) reference the GREENGUARD program.
