Neschen debuts interior designs without harmful chemicals

June 05, 2013 - Germany

The digital non-woven "Erfurt wallpaper" by Neschen can be printed with water-based or latex inks and is free of harmful substances.

This has been certified by the independent testing institute Oeko-Tex in Frankfurt. The Neschen medium, coated for inkjet printing, is based on cellulose and polyester fibres and is now allowed to carry the well known seal of approval: "Confidence in Textiles".

The Neschen wallpaper was tested and fell below all safety limits relating to currently valid human-ecological requirements. So Erfurt wallpaper also meets very high quality requirements from a health point of view.

The testing institute inspected the wallpaper for harmful substances according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 in Product Class IV: this includes furnishing materials such as curtains, table cloths or upholstery covering.

"The seal of approval 'Confidence in Textiles' is an international synonym for responsible manufacturing as well as being an indication of safety and transparency," said Frank Seemann, Manager of Marketing and Communications at Neschen AG in Bückeburg.

"This is why it is all the more pleasing to receive this certificate for our digital print wallpaper. It underlines the high quality requirements we expect our products to meet."

The digital printable "photo wallpaper", ideal for individual interior design, is the product of close cooperation between two specialists: Erfurt from Wuppertal for the wallpaper (non-woven fibres) and Neschen for the coating.

The Neschen coating makes it possible to customise the Erfurt wallpaper with your favourite personal motifs on inkjet printers and it can then be applied using commercially available non-woven wallpaper paste.

In specialist painting shops, the custom printable digital nonwoven wallpapers are available under the brand name Erfurt- On wall. The digital print market can obtain the non-woven wallpaper directly from Neschen AG under the name Erfurt wallpaper.

Together with their UK partner ArtSystems, Neschen AG will be present at the Fespa 2013 in London from 25 to 29 June. At their stand N75N, the Bückeburg coating specialists will focus on new digital printing products, protection and mounting films.
