Xaar introduces new UV inks

Xaar says the inks are ideal for wide format scanning applications and designed to achieve high-quality results on a variety of graphic arts substrates, including banner grade PVC, self adhesive vinyl, textile mesh and paper. Xaar Color+ XV Ink Series reportedly boasts superior lightfastness properties, making them perfect for durable outdoor applications.

In addition, the inks have been formulated for rapid dry times on substrates without the application of heat. Typical dry times for the inks on vinyl for example are 60 seconds at 40?C.

Xaar says the new ink series also shows excellent resistance to abrasion, water and common solvents when used on recommended materials.

Jill Woods, Xaar inks product manager says, “With a growing concern over the number of third party unapproved inks coming to market, Xaar and its ink partners are working together to develop approved inks, which are inks that have been specifically designed to work with Xaar’s printhead products.

“By investing in Xaar approved inks, OEMs and end-users can be assured that Xaar printheads will achieve optimum performance levels and avoid the hazards caused by unapproved inks which can result in machine downtime and high maintenance costs. The release of the Xaar Color+ XV Ink Series supports our continued work with Sericol and our commitment to the inkjet industry.”

The Xaar Color+ XV Ink Series is available in the process colours: cyan, light-cyan, magenta, light-magenta, yellow and black. The inks come with a shelf life of twelve months from the date of manufacturing when stored between 5?C and 30?C.
