Clariant is to show how its growing range of pigments, dyes and pigment preparations for inks and toners meets developing needs of customers in the print industry at Fespa. The company will be on stand A39 in hall 3.1.
It will premier new pigments for inkjet inks and will also highlight the support it provides to customers in regulatory compliance.
Clariant already offers many solutions for making inkjet inks and prints more colourful, but now it is broadening its palette with two new products, Ink Jet Magenta E-S VP6057 and Ink Jet Orange GR VP6102. As their names indicate, both are pigments for use in inkjet inks. They can be used in water, solvent and UV based inks. Both have excellent light and weather fastness properties, meaning they can be used in a wide variety of applications outdoors as well as indoors.
Ink Jet Magenta E-S VP6057 is a blue shade magenta with excellent flow properties and long term viscosity stability. It is characterised by very good transparency, very small particles and narrow particle size distribution. Its very good flow properties and brilliant shade (high chroma) make it superior to other common PR122 grades currently available on the market.
Ink Jet Orange GR VP6102 is the only Pigment Orange 43 grade pigment commercially available that has been designed specifically for digital inks. It exhibits the most brilliant orange shade of all orange pigments.
‘The traditional CMYK four colour system (cyan, magenta, yellow, black) has certain restrictions regarding colour gamut, which is why more colour pigments for printing are now trending,’ said Clariant’s Rüdiger Baur. ‘Expanding the gamut with additional colours – orange and also green and violet – is gaining more attention, especially in graphic arts (flyers, brochures) and packaging (labels, food boxes).’
During the show, Clariant will provide visitors with information on its wide range of existing solutions for digital package printing, including pigments not only for inks but also for liquid toners for labels and packaging. In addition, it will show u solutions for short run digital publication printing. Clariant produces the full range of process colours as well as shading colours.
