J-Teck, KIIAN Digital and Sawgrass Industrial are all inkjet ink brands of JK Group. KIIAN Digital is a textile inkjet ink manufacturer, which produces dye sublimation, disperse dye, and pigment inks.
KIIAN Digistar Hi-Pro dye sublimation inks have been awarded Nike’s Restricted Substance List (RSL) certification. What does this mean? Since Nike is the largest manufacturer for sports apparel and footwear, I would say this is a big deal for KIIAN. To obtain Nike’s RSL certification the supplier, in this case KIIAN, have to evaluate their chemical impact and incorporate manufacturing processes that comply with a comprehensive list of chemical standards. This means companies should not only meet worldwide standards but also exceed them, in order to adhere to Nike’s sustainability commitment.
We have seen KIIAN Digital for many years at tradeshows around the world, so we know for a fact that their inks are recognized worldwide, not only by end-users but also by manufacturers. KIIAN will be at ITMA Asia next week, so we are looking forward to this so we can see get more information on the Hi-Pro inks.
‘ITMA Asia provides the ideal platform for us to showcase commitment to sustainability through our growing portfolio of eco-friendly inks. Passing Nike’s RSL testing is a great commendation to our continued commitment to a sustainable business approach, not only for us as an ink manufacturer, but also in providing solutions that allow our customers to offer more environmentally acceptable products,’
