Fujifilm Uvijet UV inks obtain UL GREENGUARD Certification

October 16, 2017

Fujifilm's commitment to environmental responsibility has been recognized as fourteen inks in its Uvijet UV range have achieved UL GREENGUARD certification. The criteria to obtain this widely-recognized 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 odor, 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,” explains Mike Battersby, Marketing Manager at FUJIFILM Global Graphic Systems. “We take great pride in seeing fourteen of our Uvijet inks recognised by UL for their low emissions - vital credentials for those who work with them.”

“Fujifilm's 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 allows us to conserve and reuse heat energy, helping to reduce our internal carbon footprint and pass those same benefits on to our customers.”

Battersby concludes: “The achivement of UL GREENGUARD Certification for the Uvijet UV inks listed below reaffirms Fujifilm's commitment to its 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.”
