Sun Chemical Launches Streamline ESL HPQ Low Odor Inks

Published on 2014-11-05. Author : SpecialChem

 MIDSOMER NORTON -- Sun Chemical has announced the launch of a new low odor ink, for its Streamline aftermarket inkjet range.

Streamline ESL HPQ low odor inks are the first inkjet products to benefit from Sun Chemical’s innovative new low odor chemistry. The inks have been developed for the Roland Soljet Pro 2, Pro 3 and Versacam printers and are also compatible with printers from Mutoh, Agfa and Uniform along with other eco-solvent inkjet printers using Epson DX 4 through to DX 7 piezo inkjet print heads.

Extensive tests throughout a six-month period with customers in the UK, Russia and Continental Europe, has demonstrated the long term performance of these inks in a broad range of machine installations.

James Gould, Product Manager for Streamline, Sun Chemical commented: “The industry is seeing a boom in entrepreneurial start-up companies using wide format printers and these companies tend to occupy smaller offices. As a result, many of our customers work in closer proximity to the printer than is often the case in larger print shops. This is making low odor inks a ‘must have’ for many of our customers.”

He added: “Our Streamline range offers an alternative to OEM inks. The new low odor range offers the high print quality and performance of Streamline ESL HPQ, with a low odor formulation. This provides the best of both worlds for all of our customers.”

Customers who already use Streamline ESL HPQ inks can switch to the new low odor versions without flushing out their machines as the inks are fully inter-compatible.

Streamline ESL HPQ LO is available in CMYK, light cyan & light magenta colors along with a flush solution. They will be available in 440ml cartridges and one liter bottles for use with bulk ink supply systems, throughout Europe.

The Streamline inks are manufactured at Sun Chemical’s site in Midsomer Norton, which is dedicated to the manufacturing of Sun Chemical’s inkjet range and is one of the largest research and development, analytical and technical centers for inkjet worldwide.
