Colorific's best in class biodegradable ink philosophy moves to uniform

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Press release from the issuing company

In response to demand for plug-and-play compatibility in a high quality independent ink with more eco-friendly properties, Colorific's latest Bio-U formula has been formulated as an exact colour match to the original Uniform ActivaSol / Colorific Elite formula , allowing existing colour profiles to be used, for a true plug and play solution.

Bio-U is now available for both the Uniform Cadet and the Uniform Grenadier. Able to be swapped on the fly, these non-hazardous cost-effective inks can be implemented quickly and easily as an alternative solution by users of Uniform ActivaSol and Colorific Elite products.

Colorfic's Bio-U inks are formulated from more than 90 percent biodegradable ingredients which contain only food and cosmetic grade solvents. This means that they can be used safely in environments where there is no external ducting or extraction, yet still meet health and safety requirements. Depending on materials being used, these products are also compliant with many recycling schemes.

By combining a chemically balanced blend of biodegradable solvents with the highest quality pigments, exacting performance and reliability are both guaranteed. Extended field testing has proven greater adhesion complemented by improved chemical, scratch and scuff resistance. The formulation used in Colorific Bio-U is non-flammable and non-toxic, enabling the inks to be classified as non-hazardous.

Uniform Grenadier and Cadet users changing from their existing products to Colorific Bio-U are guaranteed accurate colour matching without the need for reprofiling. Previous inks do not need to be flushed from the machine, and tests have shown that print-heads and nozzles are subjected to reduced blockages.

Colorific Bio-U inks, which are fully ISO9001 compliant, are available in CMYK plus LcLm. There are also Orange and Green alternatives for users looking to achieve Hexachromatic colour gamut.

Despite their biodegradable chemistry, they offer excellent adhesion and photo-realistic results across a broad range of materials, plus excellent durability.

As well as benefiting from more environmentally friendly properties, Colorific Bio-U inks are also cost-saving alternatives to Uniform Grenadier and Cadet users as they carry the additional advantage of being fully covered by Tech8's warranty programme.
