Uniform & Textile Service Association

The industrial laundry industry rents shop towels to printers and as such we are always concerned about the inks and cleaning fluids which come into contact with our shop towels. One of UTSA's members is concerned about UV inks. In particular, are there any special health and safety or environmental precautions for UV inks (i.e. different from other types of inks)? Have there been any recent changes in UV ink formulations which launderers should be aware of?
