Using the best quality pigments and a unique dispersion technology, Colorific XXL Solvents inks provide a wide colour gamut multiplying the number of colours printable whilst simultaneously maximising the outdoor light-fastness for prints with a lasting impact.
Colorific XXL Solvent inks are recommended for a wide range of uncoated materials – Banner Grade PVC – PVC – Self-adhesive Vinyl – Mesh – Paper
Colorific XXL Solvent inks have been formulated to meet the drying specification of a range of super wide format presses using solvent-based inks. The actual drying speed will depend on a number of factors. These include, ink thickness, substrate choice and the print speed.
Colour and Outdoor Durability
The highest quality pigments have been chosen for their very wide colour gamut maximising the range of colours achievable. Accelerated weathering tests have been carried out in a Xenon Arc Weatherometer set to the SAEJ 1960 Standard. Under these conditions, the accelerated weathering of Colorific XXL Solvent inks equates to approximately 12 months outdoor exposure in a temperate climate such as the UK.
Chemical and Abrasion Resistance
Colorific XXL Solvent inks have good chemical and abrasion resistance. However, for optimum resistance it is recommended to over-varnish or laminate prints to protect the surface from chemical attack.
Plastics Certain plastics may be impregnated with lubricants, which may impair adhesion and block resistance even a considerable period of time after printing. It is normal for Banner Grade PVC to be highly plasticised, which over time migrates to the surface significantly reducing the ink adhesion level. This problem can be overcome by wiping the surface with white spirit before printing.
