IIMAK’s breakthrough aqueous ink technology

January 16, 2019

The global developer and manufacturer of consumable solutions for the graphics industry, has announced the worldwide launch of its ResinJet Series replacement inks.

The replacement inks are described as “the industry’s first high-quality, compatible alternative for use in Hewlett-Packard latex printers” and profess to offer “outdoor durability.”

Demand for outdoor durable, VOC-free inkjet inks used by sign shops and print providers has grown dramatically, according to IIMAK, giving rise to the need for a reliable, economical aftermarket alternative. The company invested 18 months to develop the industry’s first aqueous replacement ink, capable of producing “robust, vibrant signs and graphics without compromising quality, durability or throughput.” ResinJet’s chemistry is “so revolutionary,” IIMAK states, “that a patent is pending.”

James Andreottola, IIMAK’s Channel Manager for Wide Format Inks, said: “Our R&D team’s ingenious approach to the ResinJet’s chemistry enabled us to achieve a true ‘plug and play’ water-based digital ink. Our solution withstands the rigours of both outdoor and indoor graphics.”

“This ink series significantly reduces cost per print and delivers vibrant images resistant to fading, scratching, cleaning, and moisture,” Andreottola added.

The “groundbreaking chemistry” of ResinJet is said by IIMAK to have been “fully qualified and tested, proving its high compatibility with the OEM.” Furthermore, the company explains that “changeover is easy as no flushing and no new colour profiles are required. ResinJet is virtually odourless and offers excellent adhesion on a variety of media, including cast and calendared vinyl, wall coverings and banner materials.”

The ink-set includes 6 colours available in bulk or remanufactured cartridges. ResinJet comes with a “two-year shelf life” and a “100 percent satisfaction guarantee.”
