Due to the environmentally friendly products of Transfertex we received the following certifications:
Reuse of the print cylinders
For the production of new designs we either print digitally or always reuse our printing cylinders. Cylinders are reworked according to strict German environmental standards at our factory in Kleinostheim.
No water consumption or pollution
We print with ethanol-based solvent inks. Ethanol is a completely natural, renewable substance. Because we use no water in our process, we generate no waste-water.
Recycling of the solvent
Due to our state-of-the-art analogue and digital production processes, we are able to recycle our solvent, therefore generating virtually zero emissions.
Energy efficient printing process
Due to the use of solvents in our printing process, we require significantly less energy to dry our paper than conventional water-based printing systems.
Environmentally friendly inks
Transfertex uses dyestuffs that are completely free of hazardous substances and contain no allergenics.
Recycling of inks
All the inks in our analogue production process are being recycled using our proprietary ink recovery technology.
Environmentally friendly transfer printing process
Not only is the process to produce the paper environmentally friendly, but also the transfer of the design from the paper to the fabric is a completely clean, dry process. Therefore, neither water nor air pollution is generated during the transfer process.
