Agfa has announced that its Anuvia 1250/1551 and Anapurna1200/1501 UV LED inkjet inks sets for sign and display printing received the GREENGUARD Gold certification in recognition of their environmental friendliness.

The GREENGUARD certification is granted to products that meet some of the world’s most rigorous chemical emissions standards, helping to reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure. The GREENGUARD Gold standard includes health-based criteria for more than 360 VOCs and also requires lower total VOC emission levels to ensure that the products are acceptable for use in sensitive indoor environments like schools and healthcare facilities.

Agfa Anuvia 1250 and 1551, as well as the Anapurna 1200 and 1501 inkjet ink sets, obtained the highest level within the GREENGUARD Gold certification, which means that they are perfectly safe to be used for prints that cover all walls of a room – not just as signage or partial wall decoration.

Obtaining the GREENGUARD Gold certification for our wide format UV LED inkjet inks underlines our commitment to offer printing systems that are safe and environmentally friendly,” says Sarah Lafleur, application product manager – Inkjet Ink. “Print businesses investing in an Anapurna or Jeti wide format printer from Agfa enjoy both operator safety and the opportunity to generate additional business as they can meet their customers’ requests for a certified solution for wall finish applications.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
