Magenta-Vision has developed the ECO-TOPAZ eco-solvent ink in response to demand for options that support eco-friendly production.
This new solution joins a growing portfolio that is being continually updated following Magenta-Vision’s strategic decision to join forces with major Polish printing ink manufacturer CHESPA Sp. z o.o.
In line with traditional eco-solvent ink benefits, the new ECO-TOPAZ inks are made from ether extracts obtained from mineral oils and produce less VOCs. They are therefore low in odour and irritancy, which make them much safer in usage than general solvent inks. They also offer a very large CMYK colour gamut with vibrant colours and rich blacks, higher scratch resistance and fast drying times, resulting in higher print speeds, smoother functioning printers and overall increased production. Finally, the printheads do not require constant cleaning as the chemicals are less aggressive to the inkjet nozzles and components.
The ink can be used to produce jobs on a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications including banners, mesh, self adhesive and paper. It is compatible with Mimaki, Roland and Mutoh printers, as well as with Ricoh and Epson printheads. The new ink is available now in one litre and cartridge options.
Charles Poot-Baudier, General Manager at Magenta-Vision, commented, ‘Our new ECO-TOPAZ eco-solvent ink delivers affordable high quality performance with fast drying times. It allows our customers to have a wider choice when looking to meet demanding production objectives and end user criteria.’
