Although they are homogeneous, printing inks can contain up to 20 different components. However, whatever the printing process is, these components can be devided as follows :

  • The pigment (from 5 to 25% of the weight according to the ink type) :
    Most pigments used are dry colourants, usually ground into a fine powder. This powder is added to a vehicle (or matrix).
    A distinction is usually made between a pigment, which is insolublein the vehicle (resulting in a suspension), and a dye, which either is itself a liquid or is soluble in its vehicle (resulting in a solution). A colorant can be both a pigment and a dye depending on the vehicle it is used in ;
  • The vehicle (about 70%) :
    The vehicule is a relatively neutral or colorless material that acts as a binder. It is composed by a blend of polymers, diluents and/or solvents. The choice of the vehicle determines the drying method but also the main ink characteristics (resistance, adherence...) ;
  • Additives (about 10%) :
    All substances added to ink to improve its properties during and after printing.

The ink texture depends on the printing process. For example, offset printing requires a viscous ink, while photogravure, flexography, silk-screen printing and ink jet printing require a more liquid ink.

Solvent-based inks provide a great durability, and are also used on a wide range of materials.

We offer a range of compatible (alternative) inks for digital printing, and for indoor and outdoor applications. Our compatible inks will highly reduce your printing costs, giving you the same quality results as OEM.

Water and UV restistant, they can be used without changing you system, and in total safety.

They are available in cartridge or bottle.

 Our inks are suitable for solvent and ecosolvent wide format printers such as Roland® , Mimaki®, Mutoh®, Uniform®, Agfa®, DGI®, Vutek®, Infinity®,Teckwin®, Wit-Color®, Yaselan®, Gongzheng®, Jet I®...
