Digital inks

SOLVENT-BASED INKS

The TRUCOLOR solvent-based digital inks formulations mix our know-how in the field of organic chemistry with a  detailed knowledge in terms of fluid dynamic.
We place great importance on high quality standards when selecting the ceramic pigments required for production.


Essential characteristics of the product:

  • Miscibility in water in amounts of 5- 10%
  • High rheological stability
  • Stable viscosities over a broad temperature range in narrow tolerances 
  • No tendency to dry and hence no formation of incrustations in the printing heads
  • Minimization of cleaning and maintenance cycles and neutral odor 
  • Excellent filterability to avoid clogging of filters 
  • High intensity and broad colour spectrum

TRUCOLOR

Reactive ink capable of creating a sinking effect that can change depending on the glaze used.

Transparent matte ink for ceramic digital decoration.
Thanks to its refractory nature, it makes a matte finish on the glaze possible. 
Interesting visual and textured effect can be obtained when applied in low quantities.
 

Ink with iridescent effect for ceramic digital decoration.
The result depends on the thickness of the applied product.
We recommend the use of print-head for high thickness applications.

Transparent-glossy ink for ceramic digital decoration.
Its formulation ensures only the slightest change of the tile’s colour.

High-reagent digital ink that reacts with the final glaze protection (top glaze) in order to create a glossy micro-relief effect.

High-reagent digital ink that reacts with the final glaze protection (top glaze) so as to create a matt micro-relief effect.

The project came before the introduction of solvent inks.


Essential characteristics of the product:

SUSTAINABILITY:

  • the elimination of odorous substance emissions and a significant reduction in carbon-based combustible and semi-combustible products 

  • the use of high water content digital printer maintenance and cleaning products (cleaners)  
  • the option to clean and wash the external and boundary parts of the digital printer and storage tanks with 
merely water 


TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS: 

  • No water repellence issues on applying glaze over the inks 
  • Improved graphic resolution 


VALUE FOR THE MONEY: 

  • Reduced special waste generation throughout the entire supply chain
