Fujifilm unveils new UV ink
Fujifilm has announced the launch of Uvijet OW, an advanced new UV ink technology at FESPA 2015 (Stand S9, Hall 6),which is used in the Inca Onset series.
Uvijet OWhas been developed specifically with improved adhesion properties so that it can be used on a wider range of rigid and flexible plastic substrates, while still retaining the high jetting standard and printing reliability associated with all Uvijet inks.
All Uvijet OW inks, currently available as CMYK, Lc, Lm and orange, deliver a high gloss finish and cure effectively at the fastest Onset print modes to ensure maximum productivity and excellent print appearance. The inks also provide superior resistance to post print processes, such as cutting, creasing and routing.
Tudor Morgan, Marketing Manager at Fujifilm Speciality Ink Systems, commented: “ With the shift in market demand from PVC to a wider range of more sustainable substrates, such as polypropylene and polystyrene, it is becoming vital for sign and print companies to ensure they use inks with excellent adhesion properties on a wide range of environmentally friendly media, without compromising print quality or jetting reliability. Uvijet OW inks perfectly meet these requirements.”
He added: “Fujifilm was the first company to commercialise the use of additional colours, such as orange, green and violet on the Inca Spyder 320 platform in 2007, and we are committed to continuously developing ink systems that will maximise the impact of printed images. By adding orange to the Uvijet OW range, it not only increases the colour gamut that can be delivered, but rigorous testing has also proved that it delivers a brighter and more vibrant image too.”
