INX Digital is debuting two Green and environmentally conscious products at SGIA 2010: Triangle ECO inks and the Eco Bulk ink delivery system. EDX is a new line of eco-solvent inks and represents the first time INX Digital's Triangle brand has developed a color and chemically compatible product for the alternative market. The dual compatibility allows users to perform cartridge-by-cartridge changeover without wasting ink, and new color profiles are not required in order to obtain the same color as OEM inks when printing. Designed for Roland printers with Epson DX4 print head technology, EDX is a fast drying ink with low odor. Both HAPS- and TAPS-free, it offers a significant cost savings compared to OEM eco inks.
Eco Bulk is a new type of ink delivery system. As an integral part of INX Digital's Green recycling program, it is easy to use and features a unique cardboard box design that consists of 100 percent recycled material.
Eco Bulk is comprised of one box instead of five, 440 ml cartridges, with the ink housed within a foil bag. Once emptied, the bag is disposed of and replaced, a more sustainable approach compared to plastic. The foil bag can contain up to two liters of ink, double the current industry standard of one liter packaging and resulting in less waste, but 440 ml cartridges will remain available for customers using less ink. A test program showed that more volume allows for greater consistency of the product being delivered through the network.
