Absolute Inkjet, Inc., a Glenview, IL-based Manufacturer of digital inks and media, has launched Absolute Black VET inks for clear film printing on Epson Ecotank model printers. Using a special UV absorbing dye that effectively blocks light, Absolute Black inks can be installed in all tanks on a printer for all black film positive/negative printing for use in exposure applications such as screen positives, flexo plates, and photo engraving. Absolute Black VET inks provide superior light blocking compared to regular full color inks for longer exposure times. Films produced with the inks are also more scratch resistant than regular color inks so films can be kept and re-used. Absolute Black VET inks are supplied in ready to use 140 ml bottles for easy tank filling, and in 1 liter bulk bottles.
Absolute Black VET inks are compatible for use with most current models of Epson Ecotank printers, but are especially suitable for the Epson Ecotank Photo ET-8500, ET-8550 and the Epson Surecolor T3170x.
“These latest 13” and 24” wide Ecotank models from Epson are ideally suited for film positive or negative printing” explains Tony Martin, Absolute Inkjet President. “With Absolute Black VET inks installed, these printers produce deep black prints that can be exposed for longer. Using bulk ink makes them far more cost effective and reliable when compared to cartridge based printers.”
