Mimaki SS21 GREENGUARD GOLD

Mimaki has been awarded the Greenguard Gold Certification for its inks thereby making the inks entirely suitable for a wide range of applications, including those in schools, healthcare or similarly sensitive environments.

Greenguard Certification requires stringent emissions criteria to be met in addition to verification of numerous other technical requirements before certification can be awarded. After initial certification, on-going testing, documentation, and verification processes are required for demonstration of consistent product performance.

“In order to comply with the Greenguard requirements, a company needs to invest in extensive R&D efforts and ongoing commitment to develop the most technologically advanced, as well as the safest inks,” says Mimaki’s Mike Horsten. “The reach of Mimaki products is growing at a phenomenal rate. This certification offers us, our customers and the general public peace of mind and extra assurances that our print solutions are entirely suitable for a wide range of applications, including those in schools, healthcare or similarly sensitive environments.”

The Greenguard Gold Certification demands stricter certification criteria and considers safety factors to ensure that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as educational and medical facilities. Greenguard Certification is part of UL Environment, a business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories). As an ISO-IEC Guide 65:1996 accredited, third-party certifying body, the Greenguard Environmental Institute issues the Greenguard Certification to help manufacturers create - and help buyers identify - superior products and materials that have low chemical emissions, improving the quality of the air in environments in which the products are used.

Mimaki is distributed in the UK via the company's UK and Irish distributor Hybrid Services Ltd.
