Uvijet KA ink provides superior performance on rigid plastic substrates

 Valhalla, N.Y., October 31, 2013 – Adding to its impressive range of inkjet technology and high performance UV inkjet ink systems, FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced the launch of Uvijet KA, a new alternative four color CMYK ink technology specifically designed for the Acuity Series of printers. Uvijet KA provides excellent adhesion, scratch resistance and enhanced tolerance to marks caused by operator fingerprints or traces left by protective films.

“Uvijet KA offers a high functionality ink with excellent adhesion across a wide range of rigid plastic substrates. Uvijet KA is ideal for customers for whom adhesion is a priority,” said John Kaiser, product marketing manager, Inkjet Inks, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division.

A pioneer of UV inkjet inks and leading provider of award winning Uvijet inks for wide format printing, Fujifilm has proactively responded to industry feedback suggesting a need for an ink with high adhesion across a broader spectrum of rigid plastic substrates. The adhesion range of Uvijet KA is much wider than other inks currently available, and allows operators to manage multiple substrates within a single ink.

“Fujifilm is dedicated to being the inkjet leader. Our rigorous and thorough testing exhibited excellent adhesion to acrylic, aluminum composite materials, fluted polypropylene (Correx), foam core, PETG, and styrene,” continued Kaiser. “Uvijet KA is the third generation ink developed for the Acuity Series, and enters the market at the same price point as Uvijet KO and Uvijet KI.”
