EFI's ProGraphics XA high-adhesion UV LED display graphics inkjet ink, suitable for a range of rigid and flexible media, is now available for EFI wide format flatbed and hybrid roll/flatbed printers.
ProGraphics XA high-adhesion ink is ideal for yard signage
ProGraphics XA ink does not chip during cutting when used on standard acrylic, corrugated plastic or other fluted polypropylene media. ProGraphics XA ink is also flexible enough for high-heat forming applications. “Bringing this advanced ink to the EFI Pro 24f, Pro 30f, Pro 16h and Pro 30h wide-format printers gives sign and display graphics operations more capabilities in the range of applications they offer to customers,” EFI said.
“We are pleased to bring this exceptional high-adhesion ink to our wide format printer owners,” added Ken Hanulec, EFI’s vice president of worldwide marketing. “We continually strive to increase the value of EFI investments, and now customers will have the benefit of ProGraphics XA ink’s versatility, durability and flexibility to extend the range of substrates and surfaces they can print on.”
ProGraphics inks include:
EFI - 3M ProGraphics UV LED ink for flexible applications, including those that need to be stretched or heated or require the 3M MCS Warranty;
EFI ProGraphics UV LED POP ink for rigid board and flexible media printing of indoor and outdoor applications;
EFI ProGraphics UV LED Rigid ink provides the best surface mar resistance and is ideal for printing on specialty rigid media, such as lenticular lenses, steel, aluminium, and wood;
EFI ProGraphics UV LED Ultra ink for a highly diverse range of flexible and rigid media applications, such as banners, exterior signage, retail signs, interior architectural design, and those that need the best outdoor weathering performance without lamination.
EFI customer Kurt Kahmnke, owner of Missouri-based Payler Signs & Graphics, says he’s gained greater adhesion and durability on rigid substrate prints he produces on his company’s new EFI Pro 30h hybrid wide-format printer.
“We’ve tested prints produced with the ProGraphics XA ink in our EFI Pro 30h printer in a variety of modes on Coroplast, acrylic, aluminium composites and other challenging materials by spraying them with water, leaving them outside in the heat, and stacking them ink side to ink side,” said Kahmnke. “We are very pleased with the ink’s adhesion, quality, and performance and are confident that we made the right choice.”
