Jetrion Launches New Wide-Format Solvent Inks For Xaar-Based Printers

Press release from the issuing company

ANN ARBOR, MI - September 11, 2005 - Jetrion LLC, a leading supplier of inkjet printers, inks and custom systems, has announced the availability of a new set of wide-format solvent inks for Xaar-based printers used in the production of outdoor products such as billboards, exterior signage, bus and building wraps. Available in four-color, six-color and Hexachrome, Jetrion's 6500 true solvent inks enable improved printer performance by increasing printhead open time, reducing clogged nozzles, and reducing printhead maintenance. The NMP-free Jetrion 6500 inks also extend printhead life and print on the widest range of vinyl, synthetic and paper substrates most often used in outdoor environments. Utilizing technology of Jetrion's earlier successful wide format ink formulas, the new solvent inks are formulated with automotive-grade pigments for exceptional lightfastness and a full two-year outdoor weather resistance. The inks also have a proven shelf life of twelve months. The new wide-format inks reduce overall operating costs for OEMs as well as end-users who can realize important savings in material and production time. In Jetrion's pre-launch benchmarking process with major wide-format printing companies across the country, printheads lasted significantly longer. The new wide-format inks also enabled users to print with exceptional reliability and outstanding quality on a greater variety of lower-cost media. Dr. Ken Stack, president of Jetrion, observed, "Our new wide-format inks give printers the expanded color gamut they need to meet the challenges of reproducing the increasingly complex designs that are being created today for wide-format products. We've formulated our new inks to specifically improve printer reliability and printhead life thus providing considerable cost savings for our customers in the process."
