The selected inks that we use to print our cycling apparel are water based, a choice dictated by our care for the environment, the drying time is in fact longer in comparison to solvent based inks, this aspect decrease the productivity but ensures healthy work environments and cycling clothes that do not create allergies.
The colours used comply with the REACH Regulation. REACH is the Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals.
It entered into force on 1st June 2007. It streamlines and improves the former legislative framework on chemicals of the European Union (EU).
The main aims of REACH are to ensure a high level of protection of human health and of the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals, the promotion of alternative test methods, the free circulation of substances on the internal market and enhancing competitiveness and innovation.
REACH makes industry responsible for assessing and managing the risks posed by chemicals and providing appropriate safety information to their users. In parallel, the European Union can take additional measures on highly dangerous substances where there is a need for it.
