Sensient Imaging Technologies, a division of Sensient Technologies Corporation, has announced that its newly released ElvaJet Opal SC inks has been awarded the Eco Passport certificate by Oeko-Tex. Sensient, based in Switzerland, is a leader in developing first class digital sublimation inks and a pioneer of eco-friendly and sustainable technologies.

Mike Geraghty, president of Sensient’s Colours Group said, “With the latest sublimation technology, ElvaJet Opal SC achieving the Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex certification, Sensient re-affirms a longstanding commitment to developing sustainable products. The Eco Passport allows our customers to confirm compliance with sustainable textile manufacture.”

Simon Daplyn, marketing manager for Sensient’s Inks business said, “ElvaJet Opal SC is the first digital sublimation ink designed for industrial printers using Kyocera heads to achieve the Eco Passport, Clearly, this is quite an achievement and underlines our core innovation strategy to deliver eco-friendly products that offer a real value for our partners”.

With Eco Passport status, ElvaJet Opal SC is also considered compliant with the Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Programme, which accepts the Oeko-Tex as indication of conformance with the organisation’s Manufacturing Restricted Substances List (MRSL) in connection with the ZDHC Gateway Chemical Module.

Oeko-Tex, The International Association for Research and Testing in the Field of Textile and Leather Ecology, is a union of 18 independent textile research and test institutes providing tests and standards to ensure responsible and sustainable management within the textiles industry. Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers can show that their products can be used in a sustainable textile production. The Eco Passport issued for the ElvaJet Opal SC is without restrictions as all product test results are below the threshold limit set by the Eco Passport.

Therefore, this series of ink can be used for the production of human-ecological optimised textiles without further testing on the printed textile. The combined tests performed on the series showed that there is no harmful effect on the human and environmental health of the textiles printed with the ElvaJet Opal SC. This evaluation used the test methods and requirements of the Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex that are in force in January 2018. (GK)
