SunJet® Launches PerSona™ Inks as Digital Solution for Mailing and Plastic Cards

Published on 2006-10-20. Author : SpecialChem

Chicago, IL -- SunJet, the inkjet ink division of Sun Chemical, announced the launch of its PerSona™ brand of inks for commercial printing and finishing applications at Graph Expo. Several manufacturers of digital printing equipment will use the PerSona inks in their exhibits at the show, which is to be held Oct. 15-18 in Chicago, Illinois.

Designed specifically for use in inkjet printing equipment using both continuous inkjet (CIJ) and drop-on-demand thermal and piezo (DOD) technology, the PerSona™ brand uses focused ink technology to address the specific application needs for mailing, billing and statement printing, as well as personalization of plastic cards used for security and identification in smart applications.

"Working with our customers and our original equipment partners who manufacture printers for these sectors, we have a deep understanding of their needs and have designed PerSona with application-specific properties to suit the process where they are employed," said Peter Saunders, SunJet sales & marketing manager. "As well as the performance criteria expected of all inkjet inks, such as stability and high jetting reliability, we have ensured that substrate compatibility, ink wetting, print quality and drying performance are optimized for process."

The PerSona™ ink series ranges includes from water, oil, and solvent sets, as well as a UV set for use with non-porous media and in plastic card printing where a range of plastic substrates are used.

PerSona™ water-based inks can be used with thermal print heads commonly used for in-line mailing where fast drying and smear resistance are important. On equipment that employs piezo print heads - typically those of the types produced by SunJet partners Xaar and Spectra - use of the oil, solvent and UV inks can be integrated.

All of the inks in the PerSona™ series are backed by SunJet's extensive research and development program and use established chemistry to match functional requirements at the end-user level.
