The Digistar Hi-Pro series of sublimation printing inks from Kiian Digital has been awarded Nike’s Restricted Substance List Certification, reports its parent company JK Group. This means the inks are now licensed by Nike for use in its supply chain.
“This highlights our long-term ethos of a sustainable business approach, not only for us as an ink manufacturer, but also in providing solutions that allow our customers to offer more environmentally acceptable products,” said Marco Girola, Kiian Digital marketing specialist. Sublimation inks such as Digistar Hi-Pro are subjected to annual tests by the organisation to ensure the absence of certain chemicals such as volatile organic compounds.
The Digistar Hi-Pro range contains 14 colours and is fully compatible with the next generation of Epson piezo print heads.
