Sensient Develops Elvajet® Opal SB Inks

Switzerland-based Sensient Imaging Technologies, a subsidiary of Sensient Technologies Corp., has added Opal SB inks to its ElvaJet® line. The Opal SB high-performance digital dye sublimation inks were created for low-viscosity Epson® printheads and complement the ElvaJet Opal SC ink for mid-viscosity printheads.

According to the company, “ElvaJet Opal SB ink defines ease of use with simple start-up, minimal maintenance, and maximized printing up time with further unique benefits for users.” In addition, ElvaJet Opal SB inks are Eco Passport for OEKO-TEX® certified.

“Users of wide format and industrial printers in the same print shop can now reproduce the same output on all machines because ElvaJet Opal SB and SC inks use the same color reference,” said Dr. Simon Daplyn, marketing manager of Sensient’s inks division. “This standardization offers unique options for production flexibility and a reduction of consumable costs. Early market tests show significant ink savings can be achieved by new customers switching to ElvaJet Opal SB ink.”
