INX earns EcoLogo certification

January 22, 2013

Certified inks include four EcoTech process colors and 13 blending bases.

INX International Ink Company’s EcoTech TC II sheetfed inks have earned certification from the environmental standard EcoLogo Program. Certified inks include four EcoTech process colors and 13 blending bases. EcoLogo is a Government of Canada official certification mark and North America’s largest, most respected environmental standard. It is exclusively managed by TerraChoice, a leader in environmental certification.

The EcoLogo Program helps public and corporate purchasers and consumers find and trust environmentally preferred products across 80 categories. Its logo and certification assures that all environmental claims made by manufacturers are understandable as well as both accurate and reliable. Founded in 1988, EcoLogo awards products that demonstrate environmental leadership within their category. An ISO 14024 Type 1 program, it evaluates products against scientifically rigorous criteria to reflect the entire life cycle of the product.

Printers using EcoTech inks have an edge in the marketplace. These high performance inks are mineral oil and cobalt drier free, and offer fast start-ups and drying times and a quick return to color run after run. Besides dot sharpness and press stability, especially in light coverage situations, printers have experienced good gloss and rub resistance and can foil stamp in 48-72 hours.  EcoTech inks conform to ISO 2846-1 standards and are suitable for GRACoL G7 certification.
