Sticking to safety and quality

Sticking to quality01
Thorough quality control

An exhaustive management system based on handmade quality has been established.
It is not an exaggeration to say that quality is everything for a brand label.
This includes visible quality, including beauty, color, and design, as well as invisible quality, including fastness in laundering, etc.
Furthermore, in recent years, in addition to these two, safety has come under demand as a third measure of quality.
Chemicals and other materials that cause adverse effects on human bodies are not used. This is also an indispensable requirement for brand labels.

As such, we established an internal Quality Control Committee in order to increase customer satisfaction. We carry out and follow arrangements for quality control throughout all processes of creation to maintain quality and make improvements from the ordering stage to delivery.

Raw material quality is strictly checked

MSDS is obtained from the raw material manufacturer, quality confirmed through performance evaluation testing(physical properties and fastness), formaldehyde content is confirmed, and use of fluorescent brighteners is confirmed.

Management of formaldehyde content

Formaldehyde is controlled by law.
“Law for the control of household products containing harmful substances” October 12, 1973, Law No. 112

<Specific management measures for formaldehyde content>

  1. All materials in the printed label and woven label material sample book have been checked for formaldehyde.

Exhaustive brand management and environmental initiatives

All defective printed label and woven label products that arise in the production process are shredded at Nippon Dom and subjected to exhaustive controls to ensure that no brand labels are unlawfully carried out and used.

Also, after they are shredded, labels are re-processed by a vendor and finally reused as solid fuel to make efficient use of this valuable resource and care for the environment.
