A Greener Way to Print
UV Digital printing is inherently eco-friendly compared to most other printing methods. With no harsh solvents, and the ability to print exactly what you need, UV digital printing is healthier to work with and incurs less waste. Our inks are VOC-free, and contain no heavy metals or other poisonous or corrosive substances. These inks have been awarded UL Solutions’ GREENGUARD Gold certification.DOWNLOAD OUR GREENGUARD CERTIFICATES
Astek provides a wide variety of eco-friendly wallcovering substrate options, many of which are Type II that are PVC free, made of 31% post-consumer recycled content, can be recycled at the end of their life and are eligible for earning LEED credits. Many of our digitally printed wallcoverings come standard on these eco-friendly options, and if they are not, they can easily be substituted for these options upon request.
