The liquid solution of eco-solvent ink comes from ethereal extracts taken from refined mineral oil. This is not an ecological ink, although it is certainly less environmentally impact than the classic solvent.
Eco-Solvent ink can print on many treated substrates and does not take longer to dry solvent ink, making maintenance of a printer faster. Generally, it takes about two to three years before the ink begins to fade; it is impervious and abrasion resistant.
Solvent / Eco-solvent printing process
Just like in solvent printers, eco-solvent ink printers use heat to evaporate the solution. The complete drying ends within the next 24 hours, so there is a waiting period before any finish can be started. With alcohol and glass cleaner it is possible to remove this ink, so the service life is not as good as a real solvent ink. Contact us to request a free quote.
