Univacco receives compostability certification

Univacco Technology has gained a DIN Certo certificate for hot stamping foil 705

Taiwan-based foil and film provider Univacco Technology has gained a DIN Certo certificate for hot stamping foil 705, confirming that as an additive, it is safe for the composting process.

Through rigorous lab testing, Univacco 705 fulfills the evaluation criteria for compostable materials as outlined in the European Standard EN13432 and North America Standard ASTM D6400. After decomposition, substrates decorated by Univacco hot foil 705 leave no toxic residues nor show any negative effects on the environment. 
 
Univacco is constantly looking for ways to continue its commitments to the environment. Certificated with many international safety regulations including RoHS, REACH, 94/62/EC, EU No 10/211, EN 71-3, Univacco 705 has claims to be non-hazardous. Along with the previously deinkability certification granted by INGEDE, stamping with Univacco 705, papers can also easily deink in the repulping process.
