What is RoHS?
RoHS stands for Restriction of Hazardous Substances. RoHS originated in the European Union and restricts the use of specific hazardous materials found in electrical and electronic products (known as EEE) including ink and toner.
That means all the ink used to print our business cards meets the requirements of the RoHS Directive and keeps restricted hazardous materials out of the environment.
Why is RoHS compliance important?
The restricted materials are hazardous to the environment, pollute landfills, and are dangerous in terms of occupational exposure during manufacturing and recycling.
