Roland DGA Corporation, a leading provider of large-format inkjet printers, printer/cutters, and other advanced digital devices, has introduced V-BOND Ink for use with new VersaUV LEF2 series flatbed UV printers. In addition to imaging beautifully, delivering exceptional color results, and adhering well to a vast array of substrates, the new low-VOC, Nickel-free ink is compliant with both the CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) and California Proposition 65. Meeting these important safety standards creates new, potentially lucrative opportunities for LEF2 users, including entry into the toy personalization and customization market.
V-BOND Ink is not only ideal for printing on children’s toys, it’s also perfect for direct-printing on school supplies, stationary, jewelry and fashion items, hygiene products, earbuds and electronic accessories, culinary products, pet products, and other substrates. Available in CMYK as well as Gloss and White, V-BOND Ink can be combined with Roland DG’s True Rich Color 2 profiles for a wider color gamut and rich, vibrant graphics. The high opacity White ink, which is also Phthalate-free, is perfect for printing rich, dense colors on clear materials, while the Gloss enables users to incorporate unique textural and dimensional effects into prints.
Users will appreciate the cost-effectiveness of V-BOND Ink, as well as its durability and scratch resistance. Together with Roland DG’s LEF2 printers, these quick-drying, long-lasting inks make it easy to print safely and effectively onto plastics, acrylics, brushed metal, paper, ceramics, and many other materials.
“New V-BOND Ink is safe for indoor printing and it’s formulated to bring out the best in our LEF2 series printers,” said Jay Roberts, Roland DGA’s UV printer product manager. “But, most importantly, it expands the product personalization and customization universe for end users significantly. Because this ink meets the most rigorous safety requirements, it’s unbeatable for customizing toys and other children’s products, creating braille signage, and much more.”
Offered in 500 ml or 220 ml cartridges (White available in 220 ml only), V-BOND Ink can be purchased through authorized Roland DGA dealers.
