ecoprint by CHT is the first compostable pigment printing system with Cradle to Cradle® Platinum level. The excellent technical properties lead to outstanding sustainable printing results. ecoprint by CHT is simply designed to be returned to earth.
Cradle to Cradle® (C2C) is a systemic approach to product design developed by Professor Michael Braungart and William McDonough. It aims to create products that are healthy and safe for humans and the environment in all phases: production, use and after-use. Within the C2C concept, products are developed according to the principles of an ideal circular economy.
For CHT, sustainability is not only a trend. It is one of our most important core values and goes alongside the innovative strength. As an innovative partner of the textile industry, we are working continuously on the ideas and solutions of tomorrow.
Waste presents problems all along the fashion supply chain. Ensuring long-term sustainable prosperity, we believe that a circular economy is the future. A circular economy is a system that minimizes the input of resources and the output of emissions and waste. It transforms our take-make-waste linear economy to a closed-loop system to keep products in use for longer. This means that everything starts with the design of the product, having the garments’ end-of-life in mind.
So CHT has developed a printing product range, ecoprint by CHT, which fulfils these criteria.
The excellent technical properties of ecoprint by CHT lead to outstanding sustainable printing results.
It works eco-efficiently on Cradle to Cradle Certified™ Platinum level. The products are safe in biological systems – not harmful for the environment and biodegradable.
Ecoprint by CHT offers high colour brilliance in combination with a wide color range of C2C pigments and bright white printing results.
There are products which are applicable for screen and continuous printing. The system includes a set of 9 pigments and printing auxiliaries as well.
For screen printing we developed the three most basic products:
Printperfekt Base CC 20; Printperfekt Clear CC 50 and Printperfekt White CC 10.
It can be used for almost all printing applications and it does not matter whether you want to print on dark or light textiles. The soft touch and very good opacity are combined with elasticity and user-friendliness.
ecoprint by CHT is specially developed to reach an outstanding biodegradability that was impossible to reach with a standard pigment print. It is not possible to add a fixing agent to improve fastness, as this reduces degradability. To achieve optimal fastness levels, it is mandatory to follow the fixing guidelines. For best fastness we recommend a fixation at 160 °C for a minimum of 3 min.
SMART CALCULATION With our colorimetric ColorFinder software, pigment printing recipes can be calculated.
Fast, flexible and free of charge on your PC, smartphone or tablet.
