Unimark secures Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certification

Unimark, the leader in heat transfer products for apparel, footwear, home fabrics, and other textile categories, announced that it has been granted the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certification.

This acclaimed international eco-label indicates that Unimark will voluntarily test its products to assure they are free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances known to be detrimental to human health.

“As concerns about textile safety grow in the industries we serve, we determined that the Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certification was the best method to reassure our customers that our products are safe,” says Steven Anderson, Global Sales and Marketing Manager for Unimark USA.

“Oeko-Tex is well regarded in our European markets and our US customers are expressing interest in certified products, now more than ever, and we're responding.”

The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 is a global certification that guarantees manufacturers, retailers, and consumers that textile products are tested to be free from harmful levels of more than 100 substances that can be dangerous to humans.

The International Oeko-Tex Association's 14 independent facilities test textiles for substances that are prohibited and regulated by law as well as for chemicals that are known to be potentially harmful to humans but are not yet regulated.

The Oeko-Tex restricted substances list (RSL) includes formaldehyde, heavy metals, pesticides, and carcinogenic dyestuffs.

Unimark secured Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Certification for its major product lines: the Easy Stretch Series of transfers for demanding stretch fabrics, the Comfort Series of stretch transfers for tagless labels in close-to-the-body items, and Tuff Text rugged transfers for sports uniforms.

Unimark was granted Product Class 2 certification for items that come into close contact with human skin, such as intimates, clothing and bedding, and the more stringent Product Class 1 certification for children's apparel, textile toys and bedding.

“Unimark's leadership in textile safety is commendable,” says Dr. Manfred Wentz, US Director of Oeko-Tex. “Their Oeko-Tex certified transfers not only make the textile items in which they are used more attractive and more comfortable but also safer for the people who wear them.”

Unimark will be displaying its Oeko-Tex certified products at Interfiliere 2008, September 6-8, 2008, in Paris. They will be located in Hall 2 Stand H 16.
