Fujifilm Australia has announced fourteen of their Uvijet UV inks used in wide format printers are now UL Greenguard certified.

The criteria to obtain the accreditation are among the most stringent in the world and ensure products are scientifically proven to meet rigorous third-party chemical emission standards.

Marketing manager at Fujifilm Global Graphic Systems Mike Battersby said the certification reaffirms the company’s commitment to providing customers with low-emitting inks designed for health and safety.

“Fujifilm’s passion is about making environmentally friendly products that are ‘zero waste to landfill,’” said Battersby.

“We take great pride in seeing fourteen of our Uvijet inks recognised by UL (Underwriters Laboratories) for their low emissions – vital credentials for those who work with them.”

“We look forward to seeing other inks in the Uvijet range achieving the same accreditation when testing is complete.”

Local Fujifilm Graphic Systems Business Manager Warren Hinder said the accreditation is especially important to their Acuity and Inca customers.

“Brands are increasingly looking for providers of POP and signage that has the lowest possible environmental impact, now they can say that their inks are UL Greenguard certified,” he said.

Fujifilm Uvijet UV inks accredited by Greenguard to date are: Uvijet KA, KI, KN, KO, KV, LF, LL, OB, OL, OW, OZ, US, WH and Uvijet WI.
