Fujifilm Uvijet UV inks get UL Greenguard certification

Fujifilm’s commitment to environmental responsibility has been recognised as fourteen inks in its Uvijet UV range have achieved UL Greenguard certification.

The criteria to obtain this widely-recognised accreditation are among the most stringent product emissions standards in the world. UL Greenguard Certified products are well established and scientifically proven to meet rigorous third-party chemical emissions standards, creating healthier indoor environments.

Fujifilm Uvijet UV inks for wide-format inkjet printers are low odour, low emission inks that produce vibrant, high quality imagery.

“There is increasing demand for healthier products and working environments across many industries, and regulations are changing as a result," commented Fujifilm marketing manager Mike Battersby. “We take great pride in seeing 14 of our Uvijet inks recognised by UL for their low emissions – vital credentials for those who work with them.”

He continued: “Our passion is about making environmentally friendly products that are ‘zero waste to landfill’. Our UK factory, based in Broadstairs, generates its own electric power in-house via 800 ground-mounted solar panels that also fuel our high efficiency manufacturing equipment."

"Running our business this way enables us to conserve and reuse heat energy, helping to reduce our internal carbon footprint and pass those same benefits on to our customers.

“The achievement of UL Greenguard certification  for the Uvijet UV inks listed below reaffirms our commitment to our policy on chemicals: that they will be designed for health, safety and the environment, offering customers total peace of mind that the inkjet inks they are using are certified as low-emitting. We look forward to seeing other inks in the Uvijet range achieving the same accreditation when testing is complete.”

Fujifilm Uvijet UV inks accredited to date include: Uvijet KA, Uvijet KI, Uvijet KN, Uvijet KO, Uvijet KV, Uvijet LF, Uvijet LL, Uvijet OB, Uvijet OL, Uvijet OW, Uvijet OZ, Uvijet US, Uvijet WH and Uvijet WI.
