We all use inkjet inks in our printers of various hues and application. But do we know that the most vital part of the inkjet printer is the ink that we use in the cartridge. In fact the determinants of the quality of printing are the type, quality, and the quantity of ink in the cartridge. Inkjet inks are classified into the following four types of categories:
Water based ink is any ink which uses water as a solvent base to carry the pigment, such as RFU Water Based Ink, HSA Water Based Ink. Water-based inks are a good choice when a “soft hand” is desirable as well as where ink penetration is desirable. It is also an excellent ink system for high speed roll-to-roll yardage printing.
Solvent-based ink is a more accurate details definition and more resistance to chemical, mechanical and external stresses. Solvent-based inks are used, for example, for the decoration of outdoor objects (in the signage industry), bottles, labels, membrane switches and in the automotive and packaging industry.
In the inkjet world, oil-based inks have always been known as the robust, low maintenance, “workhorses” that offer consistent, simple, yet flexible imaging onto a variety of porous substrates. It is used widely marking and coding, package printing, and signage.
Compared to solvent and ecosolvent inks, UV curable inks have several advantages. No VOCs to pollute the air; the inks dry fast but don’t clog in the print head; and good adhesion to a wide range of substrates, including styrene, expanded PVC, polycarbonate, acrylic, gatorboard and corrugated polypropylene.
