August 12, 2003 -- Xaar plc and Sericol Imaging have announced the launch of a new high-performance pigment-based UV ink - the Xaar 770. The ink has been specially developed to work with Xaar’s XJ126 printheads for wide format graphics and scanning applications. Teamed with the XJ126, the 770 series offers Xaar customers the ability to print onto a wide variety of rigid, flexible, uncoated and non-porous substrates such as acrylic, display board and PVC, with the added benefit that the ink is ideal for indoor and outdoor applications. The 770 ink set achieves rapid cure times when used in conjunction with a compatible UV light source. Jill Woods, ink product manager at Xaar comments, “We are delighted to announce the 770 ink which joins Xaar’s growing ink product portfolio. At Xaar we look to develop inks that work specifically with chosen printheads, thus guaranteeing high performance and quality output. The new UV ink set allows our customers to benefit from a product designed to meet the rigorous demands of wide format printing. In addition, XJ126 customers will qualify for a full 12 month printhead warranty when using the 770 ink, offering further reassurance.” The Xaar 770 will be available in 1kg and 5kg pack sizes in CMYK, with green and orange available on request.
