Xennia releases UV cure inks for use in OEM systems
Oct '10
Xennia announces that it has released its XenInx Diamond general purpose UV cure CMYK ink set for use in printing systems based around a wide range of printheads.

Xennia has a long history of developing specialist inks for individual customers and supplying inks to OEMs and end users as part of complete production line solutions based around Xennia inkjet modules and printing systems. Xennia launched its XenInx range of high performance ink products earlier in 2010, and recently announced the opening of its large capacity industrial ink production facility. XenInx Diamond CMYK ink, along with a range of other UV cure inks, has now been released for use in third party inkjet printing systems.

“XenInx Diamond gives excellent colour performance and good adhesion and durability when printed onto a wide range of non-porous substrates,” said Dr Alan Hudd, Managing Director of Xennia, “This performance is now available for the first time to third party systems based on many industrial piezo printheads for a range of wide format and industrial applications.”

Printing reliability
XenInx Diamond is a general purpose CMYK UV cure ink set, with high vibrancy and extended colour gamut combined with reliable jetting in a range of industrial piezo printheads. The ink shows good flexibility, adhesion and durability, with high levels of chemical, abrasion and temperature resistance and good lightfastness. Diamond is designed for printing onto a wide variety of rigid and flexible graphics, packaging and label substrates as well as most plastics, glass and metal foil.

Alan Hudd comments: “Diamond has proven printing reliability, even in very demanding production environments, with excellent dwell performance, easy start up and minimal need for printhead maintenance.” XenInx Diamond is part of a range of UV cure inks now available from Xennia, including XenInx Moonstone, a high opacity white spot colour and undercoat ink, and XenInx Lazurite, a high durability clearcoat.

Xennia is part of TenCate, the specialist materials company, headquartered in the Netherlands, which combines textile technology with related chemical processes and material technology in the development and production of functional materials with distinctive characteristics. TenCate is a global company with revenue of circa €1 billion, listed on the NYSE Euronext.
