Sunjet launches ink for dcor industry
Tuesday, May 7, 2013
Sun Chemical's global inkjet division Sunjet has launched Dimoda, a new brand for a range of dcor industry inkjet inks.
The new range of inks is suitable for a range of applications including digital printing on panels and laminated boards for the flooring and furniture industries.
The inks, which are available in both UV and aqueous formulations, are made with pigments specifically designed for printing onto décor papers, primed wood and fibre boards and either laminated or polymer edge bands and skirting boards.
Dimoda inks can be used with all major drop-on-demand piezo print heads according to the manufacturer, which designed the range in response to the increasing adoption of single pass inkjet printing in the décor markets.
"It quickly became apparent that décor applications have some unique processes that demand very specific inkjet inks," said Sunjet sales representative Phil Jackman.
He added: "Utilising Sun Chemical's extensive knowledge and experience of the analogue décor print processes into which we have supplied inks for decades and SunJet's own expertise in inkjet formulation has enabled us to quickly provide digital solutions that work."
