Roland DGA, Irvine, California, announced that TA resin ink for the Roland DG TrueVIS™ AP-640 Resin/Latex printer has acquired ECOLOGO certification.

ECOLOGO certification is a standard approved by UL, a third-party organization dedicated to advancing global sustainability, environmental health, and safety by supporting the growth and development of environmentally preferable products, services, and organizations. Through rigorous scientific testing and exhaustive review, UL certifies that products comply with strict lifecycle-based environmental performance standards and have a low impact on the environment and human health.

The AP-640, one of the advanced inkjets that comprise Roland DG’s next-generation TrueVIS printer family, combines high-color saturation, high-definition output with quick-drying resin inks and high-speed productivity, according to the company. It also offers outstanding versatility. It is ideal for a variety of applications, including wallpaper, fine art, fabric banners, car wraps, and more. Another key feature of the AP-640 is its environmental/people friendliness, which makes it particularly well suited for interior applications in supermarkets, restaurants, schools, hospitals, and other facilities that require high safety.

“We are very pleased, but not surprised, that the AP-640 printer’s TA resin ink has met UL Lab’s stringent requirements for ECOLOGO certification,” says Daniel Valade, Roland DGA’s product manager of Digital Print. “The AP-640 is one of those rare inkjets capable of quickly delivering output that’s not only incredibly detailed and vibrant, but also environmentally friendly. That’s a powerful combination, especially for those who intend on using AP-640-produced prints in indoor settings.”
