J-Teck3 launching direct-to-polyester inks
At Fespa 2014 J-Teck3, Italian manufacturer of digital inks, will showcase the new J-Cube inks for printing polyester on machines with Kyocera and Ricoh heads. The J-Cube RF and KF series, for sublimation-transfer printing, were launched at Fespa 2013 and are now complemented by direct-to fabric versions, J-Cube PK (Kyocera) and J-Cube PR (Ricoh).
Manufactured with the exclusive J-Tecks Cluster Technology, these inks have been extensively tested on dedicated printers and represent J-Tecks answer to the market request for high quality inks to suit the growing market of digital printers for industrial applications.
New for Fespa 2014 is J-MelaMine a water based graphic pigment for large format industrial printers equipped with Kyocera heads. It has been studied for printing on melamine papers which cover panels and laminates. Melamine papers are made of very thin paper layers which are saturated with resins of different kind. After printing through a digital printer, they are used to produce panels and laminates having an exceptional resistance to scratch and solvents.
The ink is available in CMYK and features very good printability with Kyocera heads. Other characteristics are the exceptional light resistance and the very good colour saturation which allows for the production of graphics with vivid and bright colours.
