Supacolor Publishes Machine Wash Test & CPSIA Prop 65 Compliance Reports

The Results Did Not Disappoint!

April 28th, 2021 – In the garment printing and manufacturing industry, understanding product quality is critical, as is compliance with government safety regulations. We proudly manufacture Supacolor on-site, in our factories in the US, UK and New Zealand, and we hold ourselves to the highest standards. Therefore, Supacolor has implemented thorough, laboratory testing procedures on our products, conducted by certified, third parties. 

First, we engaged Intertek Testing Services for a rigorous review of our heat transfer’s durability through machine washing. The results were stellar. No damage (such as cracking or color fading) was seen on our prints until the 70th wash cycle, at which point only minimal cracking began to appear. To view the full wash test reports, download the PDF here.

Next, we underwent child safety testing in regard to chemical safety testing. The CPSIA requires businesses to provide a General Conformity Certification (GCC) that confirms products meet a range of safety specifications and requires mandatory third party testing for all children’s products. Proposition 65 sets out specific requirements regarding the toxicity of materials used in certain products that are to be sold in the State of California. We’re proud to announce that our water based, phthalate free, lead free inks and adhesives passed these tests with flying colors.
