Mimaki, a pioneer in the development of digital printing and cutting products, has announced that its original Sb54/310/410 and Sb320/420 sublimation inks have achieved the ECO PASSPORT certification from OEKO-TEX. ECO PASSPORT is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products can be used in sustainable textile production.

ECO PASSPORT authenticates the safety of chemicals used during the production of textile dyes, pigments, and finishing agents. OEKO-TEX is the first system proving the safety of textiles in Europe, and Nissenken is the exclusive certification authority in Japan.

Certifications cover each stage of raw materials, product, and company environment. The STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX product certification history spans more than 20 years, and boasts more than 150,000 recipients in the world. The ECO PASSPORT mechanism was established in 1992 by the OEKO-TEX international association headquartered in Switzerland and was the first certification process to validate the safety of textiles.

Safety certification of raw materials for the Mimaki original dye sublimation inks was achieved through the Nissenken Quality Evaluation Centre. The certification validates OEKO-TEX STANDARD 100 compliance, a worldwide consistent, independent testing and certification system for raw, semi-finished, and finished textile products at all processing levels, as well as accessory materials used. This authentication is very strict and only applies to products that meet more than 300 requirements of relevant harmful substances.

The certification reinforces Mimaki’s market-leading approach to developing ink, inkjet systems and reducing overall environmental impact. This is especially the case with sublimation printing, as this environmentally conscious print system does not use chemicals such as emulsion and does not require steaming and washing processes after printing, further adding to reduced environmental footprint as compared to other textile printing systems such as screen printing.

Mimaki sublimation inks Sb54/310/410 are available for use in TS Series transfer sublimation printers. Sublimation inks Sb320/420 are available for use in TX Series direct-to- fabric printers. (GK)
