New Tagless Printing Ink: the SB Eco Series
Eco-friendly and durable, the ink complies with strict industry standards
As many large retailers and well-known brands continue to restrict more chemicals via their Restricted Substance Lists (RSL), Inkcups aimed to create an ink that fully complies and passes several strict compliance tests. Designed to be eco-sustainable, the SB Eco Series is classified as a non-toxic ink with heavy metal-free pigments. This means the inks do not contain harsh chemicals such as aromatic hydrocarbons, azo dyes, cyclohexanone, formaldehyde, PAH and persistent organic pollutants.
The SB Eco Series adheres to and passes some of the strictest compliance regulations put out by major organizations and brands. These include:
- CLP/GHS (EC 1272/2008)
- EN 71-3
- Reach (EC 1907/2006)
- ISO DIS 6330
- Adidas RSL
- Nike RSL
- Puma RSL
Attaining ISO DIS 6330 compliance means the SB Eco Series inks meet domestic washing and drying procedures for textile testing. In this case, the inks maintained image fidelity after 25 home washes and 50 industrial washes, making it a durable ink that can last on apparel.
“We are very excited to bring to market the safest, cleanest ink that meets the most rigorous standards from many of the world’s popular brands, such as Adidas, Nike, and Puma. The SB Eco Series opens up a range of new opportunities for us and for our customers as many top companies are restricting more substances from pad printing inks,” said Ben Adner, CEO of Inkcups.
Fully compatible with a wide selection of Inkcups pad printers, the new tagless printing inks can adhere to a variety of materials including cotton, polyester, nylon, rayon, poly blends, leather and more. These inks can also adhere to non-apparel items such as polyurethane and rubber. The SB Eco Series also comes in a spectrum of 24 colors from lemon yellow to cool grey.
