Sensient And Engico Announce Water-Based Solution For Digital Printing


The 100% water-based solution is for direct digital printing on compact and corrugated cardboard.

The Aqua series of printers developed by Engico enables box-makers, commercial printers and POS professionals to print and deliver just-in-time and 1:1 cardboard boxes.

The combination with inks developed specifically by Sensient under their Sensijet SX technology offers easy processing and printing of Packaging and POS material for indoor and outdoor applications. For this solution, inks can be applied directly onto the cardboard material, not requiring any pre-coating. The ink layer maintains its full integrity and properties upon folding or forming of the box.

The pigmented water-based inks developed under the Sensijet SX platform are odourless, VOC-free and highly resistant. They have been formulated for use in printers equipped with piezo heads, for applications such as sign and graphics, decoration, packaging and others.
