After winning GOTS (Global-Organic-Textile-Standard) certification for its Velvet Jet pigment inks earlier this year, the company has received another seal for its Excellency after receiving GOTS certification for its pre-treatment solution for textile.
This Pre-treatment is using cutting edge binder technology to optimise ink performances, ensuring excellent rub resistance, light fastness and bright, vivid colours. This is more proof of the high quality of Bordeaux’s package solution and assures Bordeaux’s accountability for its ecological solutions.
GOTS is recognised as the world's leading processing standard for textiles made from organic fibres and treatments. It defines high-level environmental criteria along the entire organic textiles supply chain and requires compliance with social criteria as well.
GOTS certification provides yet another credible assurance for textile manufacturers that in addition to its pigment ink, the pretreatment optimiser solution is also the most ecological choice, offering one simple process, with one pretreatment for all fabrics, applied using a standard padder, one printer and one pigment ink for printing on all fibres, for every textile application.
With Bordeaux’s single pretreatment and ink to all types of fabrics, there is no post treatment required, no need to steam or wash the printed fabrics, and it is ready to be cut and sewn. As a result, there is a tremendous reduction in electricity and water consumption and the entire process is shorten.
Bordeaux’s EDEN PG pigment ink rub and wash resistance are high even without any pretreatment to the fabric. When using the pretreatment optimiser, the test results are among the highest in the market with 5/5 wash and rub resistance and 7/8 colour fastness.
‘Bordeaux sets new standards in the textile industry. Our solution of one pretreatment solution and one pigment ink for all fabrics creates a simple and feasible solution for digital textile printing,' said Guy Evron, Marketing Director at Bordeaux. ‘With the latest GOTS certification for the pretreatment solution in addition to the ink’s certification, we are also providing the assurance to our customers that not only is Bordeaux the professional solution but also the most ecological one.’
As home textile, fashion, décor and garment manufacturers are looking into digital printing process for easy and efficient processes, Bordeaux’s simple one process is expected to dominate the textile printing arena.
