swissQprint offers various ink sets for its large format UV printers, depending on the application. All the current swissQprint standard inks are now both Greenguard and Greenguard Gold certified. This widens the scope for users, with printed products that are safe for use in critical environments such as schools and hospitals. This is a potential competitive advantage for digital print providers in addition to the inherent versatility of the Swiss precision printers, which are also efficient and low maintenance with long service lifetimes that guarantee high profitability.
Greenguard certification essentially ensures that products for indoor use comply with strict upper limits to chemical emissions for a healthier room atmosphere. Greenguard Gold sets even stricter certification criteria with added emphasis on the safety of at-risk groups such as children and the elderly. This ensures products that are suitable for use in places such as schools and healthcare facilities. Both the Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design building rating system (LEED) reference the Greenguard programme.
