Eurofins - an independent organisation for Volatile Organic Chemical (VOC) product emission testing – has awarded Mutoh and Grafityp an Indoor Air Comfort Certificate (IAC) for the Grafityp Ecological non-PVC self-adhesive film (GEF-ES) printed with Mutoh Universal Mild Solvent (UMS) inks.

Indoor Air Comfort Blue 1The product certificate guarantees full compliance with all regulations on VOC emissions into indoor air that exist in any EU Member state. Certification involved test chamber testing of printed film with maximum possible ink coverage, VOC measurement for some 200 VOCs after 3 and 28 days as well as an in-depth third party audit of the production sites.

Stephan Heintjens, Mutoh Belgium’s Product Development manager says: “Our UMS inks have been specifically formulated to offer a unique and innovative blend of high quality durable colour pigments, a new mix of resins and, last but not least, a new combination of milder and non-aggressive solvents.”

Several EU Member States require documentation of product emissions of VOCs, with CE marking of construction products and wall coverings including digitally printed self-adhesive non-PVC film is expected to follow soon.

Reinhard Oppl, Head of Eurofins’ Certification body says: “The Indoor Air Comfort product certification implies compliance with emission requirements of all applicable specifications issued by authorities in the EU Member States covering Belgian regulation, French regulation class A, German regulation AgBB, upcoming Lithianian regulation and E1 classification (recommended for production of home furniture and wooden floorings). After issuing the certificate, we are also following up with repeated audits to ensure continuous low emission values.”
