TranSend SE - Ink Safety for Print and Braille Applications
In developing the TranSend SE, product engineers at Enabling Technologies performed an extensive review of various ink products to use in our low cost print and Braille embossing system. The TranSend SE system has been designed to work with a number of very specific dot matrix printers. The reason for this is because the inks used by these printers have been classified as non-toxic and are so safe that the Federal government has exempted them from the requirements to produce Material Safety Data Sheets for their ink. This is not true of all ink formulations.
Almost all inks used in ink jet cartridges contain toxic compounds that can cause skin and eye irritation and long term exposure can cause allergic reactions. In addition, some ink jet cartridges contain carcinogenic compounds. Our TranSend SE system has been designed to operate with a specific list of dot matrix ink printers, mainly Epson FX-890 and Epson FX-2190.
Before applying any ink to print and Braille materials for distribution to Braille readers we encourage you to insure that the ink used is safe for consecutive tactile reading applications. All manufacturers of printers using ink jet cartridges are required to provide Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for their products. You can find Material Safety Data Sheets for many of the major manufacturers quite readily on the internet or directly from your printer distributor.
