Roland Texart Receives OEKO-TEX Class I Certification


Roland’s dye-sublimation transfer technology achieved certification of OEKO-TEX Standard 100, product class I. The certification has been given for inkjet printing on polyester fabric with Texart ink, used for the Texart RT-640, the company’s latest dye-sublimation transfer printer.

OEKO-TEX is an independent certification system for testing the safety of textile materials and chemicals at every stage of production from raw materials to end products. The standard is divided into four classes based on human ecological requirements, with class I, which ensures printed textile items are safe for babies and toddlers, being the most difficult to achieve.

Yuko Maeda, division president of digital printing, market development for Roland DG said, ‘We are very pleased that the Nissenken Quality Evaluation Centre has awarded our dye-sublimation printing technology the OEKO-TEX Standard 100, product class I. We developed Texart ink and the RT-640 for a wide range of textile decoration applications, including sports and fashion apparel, curtains and other interior décor as well as promotional goods and personalised gifts. The OEKO-TEX certification provides not only an endorsement for our efforts to pursue environmentally-safe digital printing, but provides an important decision-making tool for our customers to better meet the needs of end users.’
