Digistar HI-PRO has achieved ECO PASSPORT certification. This enables it to be used in the production of sustainable textiles and those required to achieve STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX.
ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX certification is a two-step process:
Screening and chemicals compliance with the Restricted Substance list STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX as well as those chemicals which are listed in: STeP OEKO-TEX Manufacturing Restricted List (MRSL); the list of Substances of Very High Concern detailed in the regulation of the European Union R.E.A.C.H. and ZDHC Manufacturing Restricted List.
Analytical verification testing for contaminants and impurities present in the chemical components performed by an OEKO-TEX member institute laboratory. Only by passing this process can you achieve ECO PASSPORT certification.
‘Kiian Digital, once again, demonstrates the dedication to develop its product portfolio with respect for the environment. The ECO PASSPORT enables customers to meet the criteria of sustainable textile production’, said Marco Girola, marketing specialist JK Group.
Certification programmes add value by ensuring transparency and ongoing review of restricted chemicals released in the textile production value chains.
‘This is a differential for those who choose the Kiian Digital brand. The certifications also increase the chances for printers to become partners for leading brands which are asking, as integral part of their supply agreement, about the compliance credentials of products used in their processes that minimise health and environmental risks,’ added Alessandra Borghi, Kiian Digital, sales director.
Digistar HI-Pro’s certification number is: 17EP00002.
