Mutoh’s new ink achieves highest level of Greenguard Gold

Mutoh Industries has announced that its new generation, MS41 EcoSolvent ink, has been certified for ‘Wallcovering’ - the highest-level category possible.

The MS41 ink is Mutoh’s fourth generation of eco-solvent ink, and features a wide colour gamut that delivers vibrant, high density prints, with excellent dot gain.  It is capable of printing on a wide range of coated and uncoated substrates and suited for long-term outdoor and indoor applications with excellent weather resistance, abrasion and chemical resistance. The outdoor durability without lamination is up to 3 years. The MS41 ink has less nozzle clogging due to high ink resolvability so that it provides easy maintenance.

“Recently developed in conjunction with our new range of XpertJet printers, this latest Greenguard Gold certification further demonstrates Mutoh’s ongoing commitment to the environment and better workplaces,” says Mutoh Australia General Manager, Russell Cavenagh, pointing out that Mutoh has been committed to provide customers safe, environmentally- friendly and high-quality products by following industry standards in its product development process.

UL’s Greenguard Certification Program is a widely used standard for design professionals, consumers and others to find low emitting interior products that promote better indoor air quality. Products that achieve Greenguard and Greenguard Gold Certification have demonstrated low chemical emissions during normal use.

The Greenguard test method includes standardised room exposure models for both an office and classroom environment developed by the California Department of Public Health. The stringency of these models is directly related to the surface area of product that will be used in the room. For products that may be used in many applications, UL considers all potential applications and awards certification for the highest surface area loading for which the products meet the Greenguard and/or Greenguard Gold Certification criteria.
