Sun Chemical Adds Streamline Ultima & ESL HPQ Ink Systems for Wide-format Printing
- Jul 4, 2012
WEXHAM SPRINGS, UK -- Sun Chemical, the world's leading manufacturer of printing inks and pigments, launched the Streamline ESL HPQ and the Streamline Ultima HPQ, to meet the stringent demands of the latest wide format printing equipment.
The Streamline range is designed specifically for use in wide and super-wide format printers which are using high-quality solvent based inks. With the ever increasing pressure and developments of the print market, Sun Chemical is continuously making improvements to product performance ensuring that they are of the highest quality and meet the needs of this expanding market.
The Streamline ESL HPQ and Ultima HPQ ranges have been developed following extensive feedback of customer needs. The new products provide high print reliability and print quality.
Nick Goodall, The Color Crew General Manager, participated in the beta testing scheme for Sun Chemical's Streamline Ultima HPQ and commented: "We've had a very positive experience with Ultima HPQ - no problems at all! We had an issue with blocked ink heads with our previous ink system which increased the amount of down time. Cleaning and replacing them was a significant cost to the business. Essentially, with Sun Chemical's Streamline ink system, we're getting the highest quality ink product and performance at half the price of OEM."
Steve Moralee, Director, AM Printshop Ltd, who participated in the beta testing scheme for Streamline ESL HPQ said: "We are very impressed with ESL HPQ. We are now also much more in control of our ink outlay. In the past, the amount of ink we used on a job was so varied that it was difficult for us to estimate the total production cost. Sun Chemical's new Streamline ink system has provided us with outstanding print quality while reducing our material costs by over 50%. This means that we are now in a position to compete commercially on a national level, creating a whole host of new business opportunities."
The new additions to the Streamline range have been carefully matched to the original products for both color shade and strength as well as physical properties, enabling customers to continue to use all the existing settings when converting from the original inks.
Both ranges have very high print quality that exceed OEM product performance in many cases and also feature excellent adhesion to a wide range of media commonly used in the sign and graphics markets such as; photo labs, digital print shops, exhibition printers, graphic art bureaus, sign shops, screen printers, repro houses and commercial printers.
