Inkcups introduces Vivid White UV Inkjet Ink

Print Industry News

Characterizing its new ink as “the brightest digital white ink on the market,” Inkcups (Danvers, MA) newest addition to its S1 UV Ink Series, Vivid White, “reproduces the brightest whites available in the industry and is based on decades of experience, and after thorough and rigorous testing. Inkcups created a formula for the ideal ink that can print a vivid white on dark substrates,” the company added. Vivid White can also act as an opaque white background for multi-coloured graphics to enhance the colours of artwork and make them appear much more vibrant. This benefit ensures colour matching is consistent across all products – “the more opaque white will allow the true colours to show on dark substrates.”

Like all S1 UV Ink series colours, Vivid White has exceptional adhesion capabilities and meets the same rigorous adhesion and compliance standards as others in the product range. One exceptional attribute is that Vivid White is a pour-over for printers using the company’s S1 inks, which eliminates the need for customers to flush their machines when switching to this white ink. The ink is compatible with Inkcups digital printers, but can also be used in other printers where improved white opacity is needed. Vivid White is suited for a variety of substrates – including stainless steel, coated metals, plastic and more. It can also print on a wide selection of flat and cylindrical objects. Applications include drinkware, injection-molded housings, promotional items, electronics and more. “For high-quality graphics, a bright white makes all the difference,” said Ben Adner, CEO of Inkcups. “We’ve been working for a few years to find the ideal pigment combination to provide the brilliant white opacity in combination with easy jettability. Our new Vivid White really makes a visible difference, and after extensive testing, we believe it’s the brightest white in the market.”
