Fourteen Fujifilm Uvijet UV inks earn UL Greenguard Certification

Fujifilm’s ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility has been recognized as 14 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 rigourous third-party chemical emissions standards, thus creating healthier indoor environments. Fujifilm’s Uvijet UV inks for wide-format inkjet printers are low-odour, low-emission inks that produce “vibrant, high quality imagery,” said the OEM.

“There’s increasing demand for healthier products and working environments across many industries, and regulations are changing as a result,” said Mike Battersby, Marketing Manager for Fujifilm Global Graphic Systems. “We take great pride in seeing 14 of our Uvijet inks recognized 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.’ The achievement of UL Greenguard Certification re-affirms Fujifilm’s commitment to its policy on chemicals: that they will be designed for health, safety and the environment.” Fujifilm added that indoor air quality (IAQ) is closely tied to health, and is therefore recognized as an important concern in homes, schools, healthcare environments and commercial spaces. Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) emissions from building materials and furnishings are a major source of indoor air pollution. Greenguard Certification has been widely adopted as a trusted standard for low-emitting products. In fact, more than 400 green building codes, standards, guidelines, procurements policies, and rating systems currently give credit for Greenguard Certified products.
