Ilford Imaging Adds New Piezo Compatible Inkjet Media To It´s Ilfojet Professional Line
Orlando, FL (February 23 - 27, 2002)-- ILFORD Imaging today announced that it has added two new Instant Dry RC photographic papers to its ILFOJET PROFESSIONAL line that are uniquely suited to piezo inkjet printers. The introduction of the glossy and satin 9mil RC papers has significantly expanded the range of top quality media options available from ILFORD.
Both of the new ILFOJET Instant Dry products incorporate a patented new coating technology. The design employs a nanoporous ceramic matrix to create a very fast dry surface while providing excellent compatibility with a wide range of piezo inkjet printers and inks. The new layer design is also compatible with today-s most popular thermal inkjet printers, making the papers truly universal and suitable for a broad range of applications. The new ILFOJET Instant Dry papers are touch dry instantly, allowing users to handle or roll the media immediately after printing is completed. Because of the very fast ink absorption rate, there is no cockling, bleeding or smudging. As a result, these new ILFOJET papers set the standard for print quality, dry times and equipment compatibility. Besides offering superior image quality and performance, ILFORD uniquely offers sizes up to and including 60" wide in both a satin and glossy finish.
"The addition of these new products to our ILFOJET line represents a significant breakthrough for both ILFORD and our customers," said John Placko, Marketing Manager, Direct Channels & Commercial Markets for ILFORD. "By combining this revolutionary new coating technology with the outstanding performance characteristics already found in our ILFOJET line, we have vastly expanded the range of business opportunities available to imaging professionals in every segment of today-s highly competitive market. ILFOJET Instant Dry paper will enable our customers to confidently offer new services and enter new markets regardless of the types of printers and inks that they are using".
ILFOJET Instant Dry papers are the first ILFORD media products to have been specifically designed to be compatible with piezo printing technology and the first ILFOJET RC papers that can accommodate pigment-based inks such as HP UV ink. The satin paper is particularly resistant to pressure marks and "matting", commonly found with other instant dry media products. The papers- heavy-weight 240gsm 9-mil RC base delivers both a premium photographic look and feel and the durability required for a variety of applications. Their immediate dry capabilities were designed to capitalize on the speed of today-s faster inkjet printing technology without sacrificing image quality.
In addition to their compatibility with most piezo inkjet printers from Epson, Mimaki, Mutoh and Roland, ILFOJET Instant Dry papers can also be used with the entire ILFOSTAR System, including the full range of ILFOSTAR NovaJet printers, ARCHIVA Ink and ILFOGUARD laminating products. Both products are also compatible with most HP DesignJet printers as well as Encad Novajet series printers.
The two new papers are compatible with dye-based and pigment-based inks; both offer excellent laminate adhesion and are waterfast with most ink sets. Fully dried prints that are laminated resist light fading and the effects of humidity and air pollutants, producing optimum print quality and permanence.
ILFOJET Instant Dry papers are available immediately and are competitively priced versus comparable products in the market. The introduction of these two nanoporous media products illustrates the commitment of ILFORD in providing a complete range of top quality solutions for users of professional inkjet imaging technology. ILFORD expects these new products to enable imaging manufacturers to broaden the scope of products and services that they afford their customers, and achieve new levels of success in a highly competitive marketplace.
