Lancashire-based wide-format kit and consumables distributor Quality Print Services (QPS) has refreshed its range of Nazdar Ink Technologies products with the addition of a new series of dye-sub inks.
Designed for use on any printer platform that uses Epson printhead technology, the Nazdar NDT600 Series inks are said to deliver high print density, with less ink required to achieve vibrant prints.
QPS said the use of less ink also means there is less bleed when used for direct-to-substrate applications, and prints dry faster, meaning end-users can use lower-weight – and lower-cost – transfer paper.
The inks, which are commercially available immediately, can be used to produce items ranging from sports apparel, display graphics, fabric banners and flags through to educational equipment such as play mats, promotional and personalised gift items and ceramics.
The NDT600 inks have replaced all of the dye-sub inks previously available in QPS’ Nazdar range.
QPS managing director Chris Bailey said conversion to the new inks is straightforward for users switching from either older Nazdar inks or OEM products.
“Like all Nazdar inks, the new formulation has brilliant performance and colour density.
“The results we have seen are superb – better than we ever expected. The runnability and reliability is second to none.”
The NDT600 inks are produced at Nazdar's Stockport facility. The product range is available in one-litre bottles, for customers using open bulk ink systems, and two-litre pouches.
Bailey said the inks are “highly competitively priced” and have a shelf-life of one year, or six months once the bottle has been opened.
