"PIXESS"was designed to meet the strong demand for a surface printing gravure ink suitable for process printing. In case of conventional surface printing inks it was difficult to reproduce stable gradation of shadow to highlight. However, the development of new materials and dispersion technology now enables stable transfer of the ink, which makes it possible to print a photograph in its original picture quality. Furthermore, process printing cuts down cost as it requires fewer specially kneaded color inks, reduces ink residuals and burden on environment and in some cases it enables changing back surface prints to surface prints.
It is highly suitable for process printing.
(※Back surface printing quality prints can be produced by combining with reverse printing.)
- Can be used for high-speed printing.
- It excels in properties like printing, doctor, and clogging.
- It excels in physical properties, such as oil resistance, heat resistance, etc., required of a surface printing ink. In particular, it offers excellent resistance to polyvinyl blocking and ethanol.
- It is an environmental friendly non-toluene ink with low solvent residual.
"Normal surface printing is: opaque white -> yellow -> magenta -> cyan -> black. Whereas reverse printing is: opaque white -> magenta -> cyan -> *yellow -> black.*Use the dedicated transparent yellow"
