Jetrion Introduces Advanced Technology Fast-Cure UV Ink For Digital Printing

Press release from the issuing company

ROSEMONT, IL, September 15, 2004 — Jetrion LLC, a leading global provider of products, services and specialized solutions for industrial inkjet applications, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Flint Ink, introduces advanced technology Jetrion Fast-Cure UV inkjet ink designed to meet the demand for higher-quality variable data printing on today's high-speed label presses. Dr. Kenneth Stack, president of Jetrion, notes, "Jetrion's Fast-Cure UV ink presents the label industry with a high quality, more cost-effective solution for high-performance variable data printing than either ion deposition or thermal transfer. We've developed an advanced, fast-cure UV ink that spreads and adheres far better for sharper text, full solids and cleaner bar codes on a tremendously wide range of label materials.” In every respect, Jetrion Fast-Cure UV ink gives label printers the production flexibility they need, and equally important, gives them those productivity advantages at the lowest total cost of ownership, he adds. Formulated for unsurpassed print quality and resolution on label presses running at top speeds, Jetrion's Fast-Cure UV ink produces bar codes with higher read rates, crisp sequential numbers and remarkably sharp logo images. Jetrion's innovative Fast-Cure UV ink prints and cures instantly on virtually every type of label substrate. The printed images are extremely durable and abrasion resistant on high-gloss or film materials, even in harsh-environment applications. Jetrion Fast-Cure UV ink has excellent reliability in inkjet printheads firing at high frequencies, a valuable performance characteristic important for maximum continuous operational uptime, minimal operator intervention for printer maintenance, and optimal profitability on job runs. Containing no VOCs, Jetrion's Fast-Cure UV ink is an environmentally friendly, non-solvent ink that never dries in the printhead, making job start-ups easy and fast. The new ink is compatible with Spectra printheads. Jetrion's Fast-Cure UV ink is being demonstrated in the company's Labelexpo booth #453, running on the new cutting-edge, drop-on-demand Jetrion 3025 Inkjet System introduced earlier this year at drupa.
