KODACHROME Inks have some of the smallest and finest pigment particles on the market – consistently less than 50Nm wide, with a narrow size distribution that standard milling methods can’t even come close to matching. Finer pigments mean thinner layers, faster drying times, sharper detail and reduced printhead clogging. This provides uniformity in every job and in the world of digital print, consistency is everything.
With their ultra-fine and incredibly consistent particle size, Kodak inks allow more light to reflect off the paper – meaning bolder, richer, longer lasting colors, with less light scatter and a color gamut that’s 95% larger than SWOP.
Even better, because our inks require less laydown to create the same outstanding colors, running costs are some of the lowest on the market.
With traditional drop-on-demand printing, high levels of humectant are needed to keep the ink flowing and prevent printhead clogging which means printers experience more downtime in production.
Kodak’s continuous inkjet technology keeps the ink flowing continuously through the printhead nozzles, which means far lower levels of humectants are needed. That’s better for the environment, and better for your bottom line. And since our low humectant inks dry quicker, you can print faster and sell more jobs per day.
