Inkjet’s Future: Solvent vs. UV Ink

Ricoh Eco Sol Printer 72-RESA With the rise of solvent, eco-solvent and UV curable inkjet inks within our industry, many find themselves speculating on how the use of these inks will play out over the years to come, and whether one ink system will come out on the top of the inkjet heap. The short answer to this question is that there will be space in the inkjet arena for everyone. Short answers, however, don't always help us, so let's discuss. Ricoh Eco Sol Printer 72-RESA

Start with solvent ink. There is no doubt that solvent-based inkjet inks will be with us for a long time, and that the capabilities - specifically of very hot solvents - to eat into the substrate used, will ensure the long-term need for these ink sets for outdoor applications. Solvent ink has a lot going for it: durability and low cost (especially when purchased from third-party ink manufacturers). Ricoh Eco Sol Printer 72-RESA

The attributes do, however, come with other implications. The major disadvantage of solvent ink is that they dry through evaporation, which brings to mind three specific considerations. First and second, the evaporation of the solvents presents both an indoor air quality problem (proper ventilation may be required to ensure safe levels within your facility) and an outdoor air quality problem (your emissions may trigger the need to comply with your region's air quality regulations). The third consideration is that while solvent inks dry more rapidly than aqueous inks, they still do take time to dry. In the production of wide-format graphics, this is generally not a problem. the applications and uses of inkjet continue to expand into new markets and new areas, this could prove to be a challenge to viable production speed.

Just a few words about eco-solvents, light solvents, medium solvents and any other of the various names given to solvent inkjet ink not based in highly-evaporative, full strength solvent chemicals. First and foremost, they are still solvents, and may still bring with them the challenges outlined earlier. Lighter does not mean safer or better, it simply means it is less aggressive. If a less aggressive solvent meets the needs of your company and the products you produce on the substrates you use, it is then and only then right for your company.

UV ink, though still relatively new to inkjet applications, may hold a great deal of promise as inkjet grows. There are a number of factors contributing to this. First, UV is currently the ink that allows for direct printing onto the widest variety of substrates. This ability alone has allowed direct access to new markets for a number of imagers who have brought UV inkjet - most commonly by way of a flatbed machine - into their facilities.

The true advantage of UV in the long run is that it is dried (cured, actually) almost instantaneously using UV light. It is because of this reality that UV may be the key to high speeds in inkjet printing, specifically as the process enters sheet-fed production areas such as the printing of product packaging.

UV ink, however, does have its disadvantages. First, the UV ink is quite expensive. This, linked with the fact that UV inkjet equipment is more expensive to start, may serve as a deterrent for companies looking to purchase a new printer. Other disadvantages stem from the area of ink development.

Currently, companies using UV inkjet expect the ink to adhere, and stay durable, on a wide variety of substrates. Often this works, but sometimes it doesn't. As the ink continues to develop, however, it is expected that some of these challenges will be addressed, either through better formulations, or formulations specific to certain uses, or clusters of uses.

When considering the relative qualities of the inks outlined here, it is important to also consider that this is all a moving target. Inks are constantly under development, and it can be assumed that they will continue to grow in durability, color quality and adhesion diversity. Today, it is most important to make sure you understand the relative advantages and disadvantages of the inks you consider for your business, and take account of what you need in comparison with what the inks can be expected to provide.
