Fujifilm releases Uvijet HZ thermoforming ink for its Acuity Prime series of flatbed presses

The Uvijet HZ range was developed and extensively tested by Fujifilm at its award-winning ink manufacturing site in Broadstairs, UK.
Fujifilm today announces the launch of its new LED UV cured thermoforming inks, designed especially for use with its Acuity Prime flatbed printers.

The inks, which are quickly cured with conventional LED UV lamps, are the ideal solution for decorating a wide range of materials commonly used in thermoforming applications.
The inks offer superb dot reproduction, light-fast colours with outstanding adhesion and elongation, and deliver excellent quality for applications involving deep-draw thermoforming, line bending and dome blowing. Other benefits of the inks include high quality finishing, bending, creasing, routing, guillotining.
Inks in the range are suitable for internal and external applications, and form perfectly between 150-200*C (302-392*F).
They are also free from volatile solvents and hydrocarbons, meaning that they have less impact on the environment when compared with solvent-based products.
Matthew Whiting, Product Manager at Fujifilm Wide Format Inkjet Systems, comments: “With our extensive knowledge of the sector, as well as the award-winning manufacturing facilities at our Broadstairs site, Fujifilm proudly creates inks to maximise the capability of its printers, such as the Acuity Prime.”
He continues: “When thermoforming, you don’t want the ink to crack, become brittle or flake. Our Uvijet HZ inks are very flexible and maintain their high quality throughout the thermoforming process, resulting in an excellent finish.”
