Fresh from gaining the Seiko SII ColorPainter M-64 wide format printer agency, DES is burnishing its environmental commitment with a ‘green’ refresh across its entire product portfolio.

“In this day and age, very customer is looking for the best environmental outcome and we, as a supplier, are focused on delivering the most sustainable, cost-effective solutions to meet that requirement,” said Ian Clare, Managing Director. “DES intends to be known as one of the country’s leaders in the supply of ecologically sustainable products.”

“Operating in a sustainable manner makes good business sense,” Ian Clare (pictured).

The message is backed up by Russell Cavenagh, Sales Director of DES, who points to the acceptance of Seiko Instruments’ SX ink into the Nordic Ecolabel product list. “The confirmation that the eco solvent SX ink meets the highest environmental standards, in addition to its wide colour gamut and outdoor durability, is a testament to the SI market leading technology.

“It is an example of how DES is seeking to deliver only the best envirnmental products to the industry.”
The SX ink, which is used in the SII ColorPainter M-64s, was approved as meeting the chemical requirements of Nordic Ecolabel for printing companies. The Nordic Ecolabel, also known as Nordic Swan, is a comprehensive Scandinavian Ecolabel that, for more than 25 years, sets the highest environmental standards for products and services.

The attainment of the Nordic Ecolabel requires an assessment of the ecological footprint of each product. Accordingly, the eco solvent SX ink from Seiko Instruments, by meeting the stringent Nordic Ecolabel criteria has been shown to be ecologically sustainable.

“It shows that the that eco solvent SX ink not only meets the highest environmental standards, but is also recognised for its wide colour gamut and outdoor durability. The listing is a testament to the SI market leading technology.
