NUtec Digital Ink has released an expanded range of NVC-free UV-curable inks optimised for LED lamp curing on both rigid and roll-to-roll media.
“The Ruby ink range offers a more energy-efficient alternative to traditional lamp curing inks and presents print service providers (PSPs) with a wider array of media possibilities due to the cooler cure,” said the South African-based manufacturer.
“From wood, metal and glass to leatherette, vinyl and woven PE, the substrate choices are endless as well as the applications whether for signage, point of sale advertising, interior design, automotive or industrial.”
Supplied in various bottle and cartridge packaging configurations, the range’s colour options offer an expanded gamut with CMYK, light colours and white plus a clear varnish option for the protection of prints or for the addition of special effects.
NUtec Digital Ink’s innovative UV LED solutions have been developed for a wide variety of printheads including Epson, Kyocera, Fujifilm, Konica Minolta, Xaar, ToshibaTec, Ricoh and Seiko, and are covered by the company’s comprehensive Ink Delivery System (IDS) warranty.
The UV-curable inks are free from N-vinyl caprolactam (NVC), produce low odour, and comply to the latest regulatory standards, the company said.
“Our Ruby UV LED ink range has been well received by PSPs globally and has seen exponential growth in demand over the past year,” added Darren Claassens, NUtec’s head of sales and marketing. “Just recently we heard that our Ruby R10-HYB white ink for Epson printheads had been chosen for the external branding of some of our country’s passenger trains. A proud moment indeed."
