The VOC certification offers 'additional reassurance' to end users of FB225 Scitex prints, says HP
HP has announced its HP FB225 Scitex ink for wide-format printing has successfully met AgBB regulations for indoor building products after Air Quality Sciences carried out health-related tests on the ink's VOC emissions.
"This is the first UV-curable ink ever that complies with both these indoor air emissions standards," explains Xavier Melisse, EMEA Scitex Supplies category manager, HP. "Prints produced with HP FB225 Scitex ink on low-emitting media have reduced odour and the fact that the inks used to produce them meet these standards offers additional reassurance about their suitability for indoor use.
"This opens new opportunities to HP Scitex FB7600 and upgraded HP Scitex FB7500 industrial press users."
"The fact that the inks have met these standards underlines the point that signs and displays produced with them are suitable for use even in a sensitive indoor environment such as a school or hospital," adds Stephen Goddard, environmental leadership programme manager, HP's Graphics Solutions Business.
The AgBB Committee's evaluations and criteria are considered 'an international standard for health-related VOC emissions', says HP. The same ink has also achieved Greenguard Children and Schools certification in the USA, in a programme concerning air quality.
