Agfa has announced that its Anuvia 1250/1551 and Anapurna1200/1501 UV LED inkjet inks sets, for sign and display printing, have received Greenguard Gold certification in recognition of their environmental friendliness.
The Greenguard Gold standard includes health-based criteria for more than 360 VOCs and also requires lower total VOC emission levels to ensure that the products are acceptable for use in sensitive indoor environments like schools and healthcare facilities.
The company says it Anuvia 1250 and 1551, as well as the Anapurna 1200 and 1501 inkjet ink sets obtained the highest level within the Greenguard Gold Certification, which makes them safe for use for prints that cover all walls of a room.
Sarah Lafleur, application product manager for Inkjet Ink at Agfa, says, “Obtaining the Greenguard Gold Certification for our wide-format UV LED inkjet inks underlines our commitment to offer printing systems that are safe and environmentally friendly.
“Print businesses investing in an Anapurna or Jeti wide-format printer from Agfa enjoy both operator safety and the opportunity to generate additional business as they can meet their customers’ requests for a certified solution for wall finish applications.”
The Anuvia and Anapurna UV LED four-colour and six-colour ink sets match with Agfa’s Jeti and Anapurna wide-format printing engines. Agfa says they excel in terms of wide colour gamut, versatility and low ink consumption.
