The certification marks the inks’ compliance with the Oeko-Tex standard 100 and the Eco-passport certification system, which ensures that inks are not harmful to the skin.

The Sb ink is an aqueous sublimation ink, launched in 2012, and is optimised for the Mimaki TS500-1800 textile printer for dye sublimation transfer.

Mike Horsten, general manager, marketing of Mimaki EMEA, said the certification is a real benefit to garment manufacturers.

He added: “Our textile printing products have been received warmly by the marketplace, and we believe this certification will help us gain even more credibility among textile printers looking for a short-run digital solution.”
