DuPont Introduces Fusion Inks, Will Compete in Wide-Format Printing Sector
Press release from the issuing company
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 31 -- SGIA Conference BOOTH 540 - DuPont Ink Jet today announced the introduction of DuPont (TM) Fusion(TM) inks for wide- format printing at the Screenprinting & Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA) Annual Conference. This line of inks is the same chemistry DuPont previously supplied to Encad (Encad GO inks). DuPont will now market DuPont(TM) Fusion(TM) inks through a worldwide distributor network to wide-format printers who currently use the Encad Novajet 500, 600, 700 and 800 Series printers.
The company has manufactured inks for the wide-format printing industry, including inks sold under the Encad Go ink brand since 1996.
"Until now, DuPont has been a silent leader in ink chemistries and innovative technologies for wide-format printing," said Kathleen Hall, DuPont Ink Jet sales and marketing director. "Many Encad Novajet printer users should realize they may have been using DuPont formulated and manufactured inks for their wide-format business for years. Now, by purchasing DuPont (TM) Fusion(TM) inks, they will be able to continue using their existing printer profiles."
These pigment inks are available in the primary colors, (CYMK), dilutions (Md C, Md M) and Octochrome colors (O, G), which are calibrated for the Encad printers using the current Encad GO inks and deliver an optimized combination of durability, versatility and permanence. "DuPont has a long history of meeting and exceeding the end-use customers' needs and we intend to continue to meet the needs of wide-format printer users today and into the future," said Hall.
