(December 17, 2008) Xaar is pleased to announce that Nazdar has achieved Xaar 'Approved' status for its latest range of high-performance Nazdar 8000 Series UV Piezo Inkjet Inks for use with Xaar 760 greyscale printheads.
The Nazdar 8000 Series has been developed as an OEM ink for industrial and graphics applications. The ink has been formulated for rigid and flexible applications and produces long-term and consistent colour density results on multiple substrates, including: reinforced and pressure-sensitive vinyl, styrene, PVC, polycarbonate, foam board and fluted polypropylene.
The ink is already commercialised as the Teckwin 8000 Series ink for the Teckwin TeckStorm flatbed digital printer. This is manufactured by Shanghai-based Teckwin Development Co and distributed by Nazdar SourceOne in the United States, Mexico, Central America and Canada. The Teckstorm is primarily used for POP displays, durable graphics and billboard banners where versatility is very important.
"We developed the Nazdar 8000 digital UV ink specifically for use with the versatile Xaar 760," explains Rich Nickols, UV Digital Product Manager for Nazdar. "This printhead jets variable drops with extreme accuracy and, combined with the 8000 Series ink, produces high-resolution results at industrial level speeds. It is increasingly popular with manufacturers of both wide format and single-pass narrow web printers resulting in a growing demand for an ink that maximises its performance."
In addition to screen printing inks, Nazdar is a leading manufacturer of aqueous, solvent, sublimation, oil-based and UV-curable digital inks for wide and grand format digital printers.
"Nazdar is investing heavily in developing the highest quality inks for the inkjet market." says Jill Woods, Ink Product Manager at Xaar. "The development of an ink designed to deliver the very best performance in conjunction with the Xaar 760 shows the company's focus on quality."
