Bordeaux Digital Printink will introduce PLASMA AC, their complete offering of printer-specific original inks, at the SGIA Expo, taking place in Las Vegas from 22-24 October 2014.
The new printer-specific UV ink solution will be visible on a Fuji Acuity Advance Select Flatbed printer. This is the only plug-and-print ink solution commercially available for the Acuity series and is designed to provide greater adhesion, durability and chemical resistance on sign and display, specialty and industrial applications.
Bordeaux will present a full output print workflow demonstration on standard and challenging substrates such as glass and polypropylene. Substrates will be pre-treated with Bordeaux’s adhesion promoters (primers) followed by digital printing with Bordeaux’s newest environmentally friendly Mix and Match, UV ink. The final stage will include post-treatment with reduced odour gloss and matte coatings on a Tec-Lighting® M1650 coater. Bordeaux’s high performance CLEAR series coatings improve durability and enhance images for flexible and rigid applications such as wall coverings, tradeshow graphics, outdoor signage and fleet graphics.
Erez Shoshani, General Manager at Bordeaux Inc., the US subsidiary of Bordeaux Digital Printink said, ‘Bordeaux inks are formulated to support the capabilities of specific printers, whether it’s high colour density for photographic quality printers or fast drying for high printing speeds. Our ink and compatible chip is developed to match the quality of OEM ink. Sign shops that try a Bordeaux adhesion promoter, ink or coating experience high quality output and easy installation as will be witnessed at SGIA.’
The newest version in Bordeaux’s environmentally friendly Eco solvent ink portfolio, FUZE ECO PR4, will be demonstrated on a Roland® SOLJET™ Pro4 XR640 printer. This Mix and Match ink is manufactured to match the original ink, offering a competitive advantage in colour, performance and cost. Bordeaux’s Eco solvent ink series match OEM and are developed for the newest machines in the market.
