Our Sustainability Philosophy
Sustainability means different things to different people. At Duggal it means a philosophical commitment to innovate, detoxify and recycle
across all aspects of our supply-chain and production processes. We realize that there is no such thing as a zero-carbon production process,
but by eliminating environmentally hazardous materials throughout our product line and educating our customers, we can truly make a difference.
We are raising the bar for the entire graphics industry to adopt environmentally responsible practices and reduce their collective ecological footprint.

In creating Duggal’s sustainability vision we drew inspiration from resources such as the Natural Step, Cradle to Cradle and Life Cycle Analysis that
are sustainability frameworks to aid in environmentally friendly product development, printing processes as well as responsible end of life
management. Products like Eco-Flex, Eco Tex, Eco-Canvas, and Eco-Ultra Cotton have allowed us to offer immediate alternatives to their toxic
substitutes used as a standard by the rest of the industry. Our entire Eco-Imaging product line is designed as a closed loop system, so when the
products manufactured reach their end of life, they are transported to our partner recycling facility and brought back into the production chain.


Our hope is that                                                                                                                     Together we can

Sustainable Printing Technology
Solvent Printing (TRADITIONAL)- The ink chemically penetrates the surface of the substrate, and fuses itself into the material. Solvent
prints produce high VOCs and require complex ventilation systems to operate. The material after production and printing must go through
a toxic process of stripping the inks from the material for reuse.

                                                                         VS.
UV Printing (ECO)- UV ink sits on the surface of the substrate and is then cured as it leaves the printer. The off-gassing VOCs (Volatile Organic
Compound) from a substrate printed with UV ink carries little noticeable smell and needs minimal ventilation for printer operation. UV ink
is removed much easier and can enable the substrate to be recycled efficiently and effectively.

Aqueous Pigment Printing (ECO)- This form of printing utilizes similar technology to a solvent printer but uses Aqueous Pigments producing no VOCs
and needing little ventilation. The head is also much closer to the substrate allowing for very accurate color placement with minimal waste.

UV and Aqueous inks help promote better air quality and also saves on energy needed to operate the machine.

Duggal leads the industry with 4 high resolution UV printers, including 2 purchased during the last 3 months as well as 6 aqueous pigment printers.
