Press release from the issuing company Hybrid Ink Printer
Ultra-Chemical Resistant Tubing for Universal UV Ink Transfer Applications Akron, OH – Saint-Gobain, a leading manufacturer of polymer transfer tubing, announced today the release of a new product development within the digital and inkjet printing market. Saint-Gobain has partnered with ink manufacturers, printer integrators, and printer OEMs over the past two years to develop a “universal UV ink tubing.” This is something that the industry at large has been searching for since the advent of UV-based inks. Designed specifically for UV ink transfer-based printing applications, Tygon® Ink 1000 features a UV-blocking layer and a chemically inert inner tube that maintains ink integrity throughout the printing process. “This product has been tested extensively with many of the harshest UV ink components and has met or exceeded industry standard testing,” says Jiezhu Jin, R&D Scientist. “We feel confident that this will be a universal solution for any UV ink systems.” Flexibility and ease of use in the field were key technical targets through the development. As a result, Tygon® Ink 1000 has an excellent balance between flexibility and chemical resistance, allowing end customers to have the freedom to design their system without design constraints from the tubing. Tygon® Ink 1000 is an ideal choice for 3D printing systems, wide format printers, packaging printers, and other related types of UV-based printing systems.
