At this year's FESPA Digital Europe event, Sun Chemical will be launching two new inks--ESL (EcoSol Light) and Ultima, for the wide- and superwide-format digital printing market. Both products are aftermarket inks that form part of the Streamline range that Sun Chemical will showcase on its stand (Hall 1, Stand A70) at the show in Amsterdam from May 12-14, 2009.
Sun Chemical will promote the Streamline range of inkjet inks. The range consists of high quality solvent, oil and water based inks for a variety of wide-format and superwide-format printers. The inks are formulated to make sure they have similar color and physical properties to the original manufacture inks so that existing color profiles and printer settings can be used.
The ESL inks have been developed for wide format printers, specifically for Roland printers. All the inks have technical and performance properties that match the original manufacturer's inks, such as excellent jetting properties, low energy consumption when drying, excellent adhesion and chemical resistance, whilst odors are kept to a minimum. The Ultima inks have been formulated for Mimaki JV33 wide-format printers and are also compatible with Mimaki SS21 inks. Like the ESL inks, the properties of the Ultima inks match those of the original manufacturer's inks. They are non flammable, non hazardous, have an excellent adhesion to a wide range of media and, most importantly, can provide customers with significant cost savings.
"At Sun Chemical, we have an unrivalled range of products to meet the needs of the wide format printing industry. We are continually pushing the limits of efficiency and strive to adopt the best operational practices to create value and remain competitive. Throughout this difficult economic period, we are starting to see an increased demand from our customers for inks such as ESL and Ultima as companies look for a more cost-effective alternative that provides the same qualities and properties as the original manufacturer's inks," said Tony Cox, Business Manager, Sun Chemical.
"While FESPA 2009 is the ideal opportunity to showcase our existing Streamline inks range, it is also the perfect location to launch these two new inks and engage in dialogue with visitors and customers highlighting how we are helping them through quality, service and innovation."
