Keeping with a tradition that represents continued commitment to the specialty graphics industry, INX Digital (SGIA Expo Booth 2149) will introduce a new inkjet ink and offer proven ink technology at the 2018 SGIA Expo, October 18-20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The lineup of leading digital solutions includes a trio of TRIANGLE® brand alternative inks and the increasingly popular Prodigy™ industrial and packaging application inks.
Prodigy EBGA is a new and unique premium inkjet ink as it cures by electron beam, with no need for photoinitiators. It recently won SGIA’s 2018 Product of the Year for Digital Inks – Industrial and Packaging. EBGA’s physical properties are optimized to jet from Xaar® print heads, offering strong adhesion to a variety of traditional label material and film.
Proven performance with EBGA inks is achieved using Uteco’s GAIA printer, the first inkjet machine equipped with electron beam technology that allows for substituting lamination with surface printing. With high chemical and scratch resistance, it is available in CMYK and can create custom spot color, in addition to orange, green and violet.
The TRIANGLE brand of alternative inkjet inks has enjoyed immense popularity for many years. TRIANGLE HFB UV Curable inks are a prime example. This premium formulation provides a vast array of colors, fast dry times, excellent transfer and is very cost efficient. Optimized for curing both UV and LED on HP® FB printers, they are intended for jetting with high consistency on HP Scitex FB500™, FB550™, FB700™, FB750™, FB900™, and FB950™ printers. Customers like the inks for their excellent adhesion and flexibility on a wide range of digital graphic medias.
Similar traits with fast curing rates, outstanding durability and a lower price point are attractive benefits for TRIANGLE GSU inks. These high performance UV and LED Curable inks are designed to run on VUTEK® GS™ series hybrid model printers. Like HFB, GSU inks are formulated to achieve GRACol standards and reach G7 targets to match color and produce consistent print quality on various media. They also are UV and water resistant without coating or lamination.
New TRIANGLE water-based inks are designed for direct-to-textile and transfer printing on polyester or mixed synthetic fabrics that contain a minimum of 60 percent polyester. They also provide optimal performance on polyester banners, flags, sportswear and other garments. These new inks are approved for use in printers with Epson® DX4, DX5 and DX7 print heads.
All of these inks featured at SGIA are supported by INX Digital’s outdoor durability and Ink Train warranties, the most comprehensive warranties offered in the industry. Make sure to stop by booth 2149 and ask an INX Digital expert for more information.
