The secret to inkjet success is in the inks – and primers

Inkjet is the main driver of the printing industry’s transition from traditional printing processes to digital and is becoming established as a production printing process in more and more application areas. Given this development, the discussion often revolves around press architectures, print heads and technical aspects of the hardware, while inks and supporting fluids tend to be treated as secondary issues. Yet, whether the expectations of printers, their customers and end users/consumers are met and whether a print job is ultimately profitable depends largely on the appearance and durability of the inks on the respective substrate. The inks and primers used have a significant impact on color quality, cost-effectiveness and sustainability of the jobs produced, as well as the variety of applications.
