DIMENSE Output Earns China's GB Standard for Value-Added Interior Decoration

Dimensor S

Hamamatsu, Japan, April 2, 2024 – Roland DG Corporation, a leading manufacturer of digital devices including wide-format inkjet printers, is pleased to announce that the unique, three-dimensional embossed printing of DIMENSE output has acquired the GB standard, a Chinese national standard that aims to meet the demands of human health, life, property safety and national security.

1. GB 18585-2001 “Indoor decorating and refurbishing materials - Limit of harmful substances of wallpapers.”
2. GB 8624-2012 “Classification for burning behavior of building materials and products” - B1 (B-s1, d0, t0).

The DIMENSE system consists of an inkjet printer combined with special media that has the property of foaming when heated, a structured ink to control foaming, and CMYK water-based ink that is safe for use indoors. After printing, the media is heated by the printer’s on-board heater which causes areas not coated with structured ink to foam up to 1.5 mm thick, faithfully realizing the envisioned textured design. This innovative solution enables on-demand output of wallpaper and other graphics with a three-dimensional presence.

Chi Hun Seo, CEO of Roland DG (China) Corporation, Roland DGs Chinese-based sales and marketing subsidiary said, “DIMENSE supports an exclusive line of PVC-free media and inks which is friendly to both the environment and people. DIMENSE, in particular, has achieved excellent results in the smoke toxicity test of the “Classification for burning behavior of building materials and products,” proving that it can be used in commercial facilities where a high level of safety is required. In recent years, there has been a growing need in China for commercial facilities that provide people with an unforgettable experience, as well as offices and living spaces that are uniquely personal. We will use this opportunity to accelerate DIMENSE’s sales activities in the Chinese interior decoration market.”
