Sun Chemical’s digital textile ink range, SunTex, has bagged Oeko-Tex certification for its SunTex Sonata DTE ink series. The series can now be used in sustainable textile production when used with certified textile substrates. It will also enter into Oeko-Tex buying guide, which allows brands, retailers and others to source sustainable chemical products.

The Eco Passport by Oeko-Tex is a comprehensive verification and certification system for textile chemicals, colorants and auxiliaries and is fully integrated with the two Oeko-Tex certification systems for sustainable textile production and product safety.

"The Oeko-Tex Standard 100 certification is widely quoted in the textile industry. It certifies that interaction between the ink and fabric on the finished textile substrate, meets the Oeko-Tex 100 specification. When printers use SunTex Sonata DTE inks with a suitable textile fabric, they will have peace of mind that they are producing a sustainable product," said Daniel Coelho, sales manager, Europe SunTex at Sun Chemical.

"This certification shows that our SunTex ink range does not contain any volatile ingredients and demonstrates that the ink and ink manufacturing process will allow printers to achieve Oeko-Tex 100 print certification so long as they themselves print with these inks using typical dye-sublimation transfer print papers, fabrics and finishing processes," added Coelho.

Sun Chemical’s SunTex Sonata DTE ink series is a six colour dye sublimation transfer inkjet ink series, compatible with Epson DX 4-7 print heads. (RR)
