Avient Specialty Inks Launches Wilflex™ Epic™ Rio Ready-For-Use Standard Color Inks

CLEVELAND — November 1, 2022 — Today, Avient Corp. announced its Specialty Inks business is improving its popular Wilflex™ Epic™ Rio Mixing System with the launch of Wilflex Epic Rio Ready-For-Use (RFU) Standard Colors, including 33 new flexible cure inks. This portfolio of vibrant, bold, and accurate colors is available to preorder today and will be ready to ship as early as December 1, 2022. This next generation of ready-for-use inks will replace the Epic Standard Color portfolio effective February 1, 2023.

Wilflex Epic Rio RFU Standard Colors were created with sustainability in mind. These popular industry colors have a flexible cure profile of 266 ⁰F to 320 ⁰F (130⁰C to 160⁰C), compared to the typical 320⁰F curing temperature of most standard inks. This reduction in curing temperature allows screen printers to maximize output while minimizing energy use and expenses.

“The launch of Wilflex Epic Rio RFU Standard Colors emphasizes Avient Specialty Inks’ focus on sustainability,” said Tito Echiburu, general manager of Avient Specialty Inks. “Rio RFU Standard Colors allow screen printers to reduce energy use while maintaining the highest quality performance for their intricate designs.”

In addition to Wilflex Epic Rio RFU Standard Colors’ wide-range curing profile, these inks can also print with excellent opacity, wet-on-wet printing capabilities, great stretch, and an optimal soft hand. These vibrant inks are developed to be simple to use, easy to print, and can be a sustainable solution for your colorful screen-printing needs.
