Armor has launched a new dye-sublimation ink at Fespa that will enable flag printers to print directly without the need to wash post-print. Its ARSub D701 ink works with Epson printheads, and does not bleed after calendering. “Usually people have to print, calender and wash. There is no need to wash with this ink,” explained business development director Frank de Jonge. “The flag printers we’ve seen have all been excited about it.” Armor is now looking to develop it for Ricoh and Kyocera printheads as well, due to the level of interest from high-volume soft signage firms. Its other products include inks for hard substrates and high-pressure laminates.
