Xaar Approves Agfa Graphics’ UV-curable Ink Set for Use With its OmniDot 760 Printhead


Agfa Ink Delivers Effective Jetting of Vibrant and Lightfast Colours.

Mortsel, Belgium, January 3, 2007, Agfa Graphics announced today that Xaar has approved one of Agfa’s UV-curable inks for use with Xaar’s innovative OmniDot 760 printhead, which was co-developed between both companies. Agfa Graphics developed the Xaar range of UV-curable general purpose inks specifically to achieve effective jetting of vibrant and lightfast colours and guarantee high-quality, durable results for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications.

Formulated using high-quality pigments with high fade-resistance, the ink ensures long-lasting results in outdoor applications. Its fast-curing capability enables high-productivity and offers excellent adhesion and a tough, scratch-resistant finish on a wide range of rigid and flexible substrates. This makes the ink set the ideal choice for both internal and external graphics, such as banner and signage printing, POS, vehicle and exhibition graphics as well as backlit graphics and window displays.

“This new announcement further demonstrates our commitment to work with leading industry players to offer an open ink solution to ensure the best ink/printhead combination for a broad range of applications,” said Xaar Ink Product Manager, Dr. Jill Woods.

“After years of co-development of the Xaar OmniDot 760 printhead, this approval is a logical step. Agfa Graphics is strongly committed to developing high standard inkjet inks such as this Xaar UV-CURE ink set. It goes without saying that Agfa Graphics is very pleased with this approval,” said Jan Vangeel, Agfa Graphics VP Inkjet Solutions.
