Christchurch-based Hi-Tec Ink has commenced sale of the Ametyst A50-RIG inks by NUtec Digital Ink, which has been recently awarded Gold status by GreenGuard.

NUtec has attained GreenGuard Gold status for its Amethyst A50-RIG range of UV-curable inks, adding to its growing list of accredited inks and further demonstrating the company’s commitment to environment.

GreenGuard certified products need to meet some of the world’s most demanding chemical emissions standards for interior use. 

The Gold certification standard is the highest level achievable and ensures that products are acceptable for use in sensitive environments such as hospitals and schools.

NUtec Digital Ink head of sales and marketing said, “PSPs searching for safer input alternatives need look no further as NUtec Digital Ink’s GreenGuard Gold environmental credentials ensure peace of mind when choosing sustainable printing inks.”

According to the company, the Amethyst A50-RIG UV-curable inks range, designed for rigid substrates, offers excellent media adhesion and is suitable for use without primer, on a large variety of materials, including polycarbonate, melamine, glass, wood, acrylic and ceramics.

The newly certified range is offered in various packaging configurations and was developed for conventional and LED UV lamp curing. The formulation is designed for compatibility across a broad range of print head types.

The new Amethyst A50-RIG inks, and other NUtec products, are available through Christchurch-based Hi-tec Ink in CMYK, lights, white and varnish options for a superior colour gamut, bright, vivid images and eye-catching prints.

Hi-Tec Ink managing director Les King commented, “This GreenGuard Gold Status has given our New Zealand print operators something to talk about. We now have total confidence that we are involved not only in saving the environment by choosing safer environmental inks, but also inks that are very user friendly for a vast lot of applications such as hospitals, childcare, schools, where only the best will do.”

Greenguard Gold certified Nutec Uv inks are supplied by Hi-Tec Ink for both New Zealand and Australian markets.
