Inks can expand up to 220 percent.
Roland DGA has introduced Eco-UV S, the next generation of the company’s Eco-UV inks. Formulated for elasticity and flexibility and offered in CMYK and white, Eco-UV S inks are developed specifically for use with four of Roland’s VersaUV UV-LED inkjet printers: the LEJ-640 printer, the LEC-540 printer/cutter, and the LEC-330 and LEC-300A printer/cutters. Because the new inks can expand up to 220%, reports Roland, graphics produced with them can better stretch around uneven shapes, indentations, corners, and curved surfaces – for applications such as PET bottles and plastic cups, food-service trays, auto-parts packaging, consumer electronics cases, P-O-P displays, interior décor items, and more. Price: $104.99 per 220-ml cartridge.
