Bordeaux Digital Printink will showcase its enhanced Latex inkjet inks with significantly improved print throughput and drying properties at Viscom Italy 2012. The six colour EDLX™ Latex ink is comprised of Bordeaux’s proprietary water based resin formulation and specifically developed for solvent inkjet printers equipped with Epson™ DX printheads.
Since successfully launching its Latex ink concept at drupa 2012, Bordeaux has continued the development of this revolutionary water based ink, ensuring superior print results for a variety of inkjet printing applications. The new formulation provides faster print throughput, lower ink-drying temperatures, extremely high quality and reliability performance on a very wide range of substrates, as well as excellent abrasion and scratch resistance significantly better than solvent ink, and a very broad colour gamut.
Bordeaux Latex ink is designed especially to meet the requirements of printer manufacturers using Epson and other industrial inkjet print technologies. Following the presentation of its Latex solution at drupa and meetings with several OEMs, Bordeaux is developing the ultimate solution for Latex ink.
‘We are continuously leveraging our knowledge and expertise to develop novel products including tailor made and proprietary solutions for a range of industrial printheads, inkjet print machine builders and integrators,’ said Dror Mualem, VP Marketing and Sales, Bordeaux Digital Printink. ‘Our Latex ink closes the gap between the many advantages of eco-solvent based ink for high quality printing and the environmental benefits of water-based ink, free of volatile organic compounds.’
Viscom Italy 2012 takes place in Milan, Italy from October 4-7, 2012. Visitors to the Bordeaux/Trend booth (Hall 1, stand L29) and the Speedjet stand (Hall 1, stand M22) will have the opportunity to see live demonstrations of Bordeaux’s EDLX Latex ink printed on a variety of converted Epson based inkjet machines.
