The continuous transition to greener ink systems and the quest for new technologies has led Bordeaux Digital Printink, a creditable ink and solutions manufacturer, with proven in-house research and development achievements in the inkjet printing market, to its latest innovation, Latex water-based resin ink designed for Piezo Drop-on-Demand printheads.

The Bordeaux revolutionary Latex ink uses Piezo DOD instead of the commonly used Thermal Drop-on-Demand printheads. Bordeaux offers a prototype water based ink intended for adaptation on solvent based printers. The Latex ink benefits from the quality achieved with solvent based inks with the environmental advantage of water based inks.

‘Since this is a generic technology, it can be customized according to specific printers or printhead technology specifications. The optimization is necessary for a final product and positions Bordeaux’s Latex ink, in the front line of most ink manufacturers and in a lucrative position for printer manufacturers seeking a new or improved product which is in the forefront of technology,’ says Moshe Zach, Bordeaux’s CEO.

The company also showcased its FastCure™ UV Liquid Coatings, an advanced line of UV coatings for wide format graphics, to be applied by most wide format UV coaters.

Features:
-An excellent UV line of coating for a wide range of substrates
-Each coating is specially formulated to provide a solution to specific challenges
-Environmentally safe with reduced odor, free of volatile organic compounds (VOC)
-Provides extra protection, resistance to chemicals and abrasions
-Designed for use with most solvent and UV curable based inkjet inks

Applications:
-High volume UV Curable flatbed output
-High volume wide format output
-Screen Printing output
