Roland DG Corporation received OEKO-TEX Standard 100, product class I certification, for its Texart SBL3 dye-sublimation inks. This Nissenken Quality Evaluation Center certification provides assurance that these inks, made for use with the company’s new Texart RT-640 dye-sublimation printer, are safe for inkjet printing on polyester fabric to create sublimated items, including products for babies and toddlers.
OEKO-TEX is an independent certification system for testing the safety of textile materials and chemicals at every stage of production, from raw materials to end products. OEKO-TEX Standard 100 is divided into four classes based on human ecological requirements, with class I (which ensures that printed textile items are safe for babies and toddlers) being the most difficult to achieve.
“Receiving OEKO-TEX certification is significant because it opens up a world of opportunities for our users looking to make and sell products for this market segment,” said Lily Hunter, Roland DGA’s Product Manager, Textiles and Consumables.
Roland’s Texart SBL3 ink and the RT-640 dye-sublimation printer were both launched in October 2014. This was followed by the introduction of Texart Transfer Paper in March. Roland’s new SBL3 inks are available in both four-colour (CMYK) and eight-colour (Light Cyan, Light Magenta, Orange and Violet) sets.
