Canon announced its new UVgel ink has achieved the highest level of Greenguard Gold Certification by the UL Environment, a worldwide safety and certification company. The UVgel technology is at the heart of the Océ Colorado 1650.
UL Environment’s Greenguard Certification Program requires that products meet some of the world's most rigorous standards for low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) for indoor environments.
The Full Greenguard Gold Certification indicates that the UVgel 460 ink lives up to UL Environment’s most stringent criteria and safety considerations for chemical emissions.
Recently launched to the Southeast Asian market, the 64” roll-to-roll printer Océ Colorado 1650 utilises the UVgel technology. In addition to providing an excellent colour gamut, outstanding colour depth and detail, the unique inks also allow high-quality prints in fewer passes, with no drying time.
The combination of the UV gel and the Océ FLXfinish provides a beautiful matte or gloss finishing that creates output extremely suitable for high-quality indoor settings. This combination, plus the limiting of chemical emissions is ideal for indoor printing in health-sensitive environments such as schools and hospitals.
