Agfa Showcasing Ink Solutions For Industrial Printing Applications And More


Agfa’s top-performing UV inkjet inks fuel many OEM printing solutions. Not only do they deliver high print quality and day-to-day reliable print results, but also a wide colour gamut, jetting reliability, superior shelf life and superb batch-to-batch consistency. Jettable primer and varnish complete the range.

Water-based inks: the next wave

The interest in aqueous inkjet inks for industrial applications is strongly growing as they provide benefits in terms of ecology, cost-efficiency and safety. One of the industries that is looking for inkjet printing solutions is the laminate flooring and furniture market. Together with Unilin, leader in high-quality laminate production, Agfa has designed water-based ink-primer sets for high-speed roll-to-roll digital printing on decor paper. This combination of dedicated primers from UNILIN and perfectly matched Agfa inks delivers a wide colour gamut with amazing print quality and low ink consumption.

Agfa will also show its aqueous inkjet ink developments for packaging with a focus on corrugated and flexible packaging. In this market segment, inkjet printing meets brands’ demand for personalised packaging at an acceptable cost, while also offering them just-in-time delivery and supporting them in their search for more ecological alternatives.

Functional inkjet inks

Agfa is also globally active in the field of inkjet inks for printed electronics and printed circuit boards (PCB) production. The company offers inkjet inks for legend printing, solder mask and etch resist, allowing for total flexibility in lot size, variable data printing and position-dependent layer thickness.

In addition, Agfa develops nanosilver inks that feature the highest conductivity with low silver deposition (one micron DFT) and deliver high-resolution printing to create smaller, lighter and more cost-effective printed electronics devices. These solutions will be showcased at InPrint 2019.
