, known as environmentally friendly solvent ink, is a new type of outdoor solvent inkjet with high safety, low volatility, low to slight toxicity and high flash point that has become popular in the outdoor solvent-based digital inkjet market in recent years, its development has not stopped.
What are the advantages of eco-solvent ink? Compared with solvent-based ink and water-based ink, what is the difference? Which machines use eco-solvent ink and what will be its future development trend?
Eco-solvent ink can be regarded as environmentally friendly, uncoated substrate, and outdoor weather resistant. The general characteristics of machines using eco-solvent ink are environmental protection, high precision, and outdoor weather resistance. In the production process of ink, in addition to choosing environmentally friendly solvents, eco-solvent inks also put forward two higher requirements compared with solvent-based inks; one is that in order to achieve high-precision output, the dot dispersion of the ink must be better controlled, the other is that the filtration precision of the ink production process is higher.
Compared with solvent-based inks, the biggest advantage of eco-solvent ink is its friendliness to the environment, which is mainly reflected in the reduction of volatile VOCs and the elimination of many toxic organic solvents, which the ventilation is no longer required in the workshop of the weak solvent jet.
Eco-solvent ink not only maintains the advantages of high precision of the picture produced by water-based ink but also overcomes the disadvantages of water-based water for the substrate and the inability of the produced picture to be used outdoors. Therefore, the advantages of both water-based and solvent-based inks are taken into account.
Eco-solvent ink features:
(1) Beautiful and rich colors, realistic effects, wide color gamut, excellent color expression;
(2) Waterproof, wear-resistant, and not easy to discolor.
(3) Using imported raw materials, good dispersion stability, no plugging;
(4) Long-lasting outdoor performance, can resist the influence of UV light, and prevent color fading;
(5) No toxic solvents such as benzene, toluene, xylene, cyclohexanone, etc., with minimal smell
(6) Good adhesion, quick drying;
Eco-solvent ink can be printed on some specific materials without coating, and it can also be used after the printer is heated. On some smooth material surfaces, the water from the device alone cannot be used, so the water from the device is easy to accumulate together, and the resulting image is not clear.
To sum up:
Eco-solvent water has been widely used in the universal printer and photo machine industry. If you want to buy eco-solvent ink, please contact us
