Virus® ESE is the new family of eco-friendly inks named after the three pillars at the base of the sustainable development: economy, society, environment.
Sustainable inks in terms of raw materials selected and care given during the whole manufacturing process.
Environmental awareness and sustainability are integral part of Virus® innovation.
Every day we update our manufacturing process, reconsidering the raw materials involved to give our customers safe solutions in compliance with the most recent laws and regulations.
The role of the ink has acquired more and more value among the Companies of the textile and clothing industry, under the increasing push of eco sustainable manufacturing politics aimed at eliminating harmful substances.
In the formulation of the conventional inks, very often we find polluting and dangerous substances, difficult to dispose in fact, due to both industrial waste and contaminants present on the clothing items.
Virus has always produced eco friendly water based inks free from phthalates, formaldehyde, PVC and other petroleum-based raw materials.
