Crystal UFX-UV-Curing Jet Inks Approved By Xaar
Crystal UFX series of jet inks are acrylate based UV-curing products with enhanced flexibility for use on a wide range of substrates, including flexible and semi-flexible display and packaging media. The formulations balance flexibility with good surface resistance and are intended for jetting through Xaar XJ500 printheads. The series of products have undergone full and rigorous testing in the Xaar approval process.
The inks have been developed to have good adhesion to a wide range of substrates and especially many plastics, including vinyl. Adhesion to olefinic plastics such as polyethylene and polypropylene can be achieved after adequate surface treatment.
The products are suitable for outdoor use and with a suitable substrate and correct application should withstand 1 year plus exposure. All pigments are lightfast with a Blue Wool Scale rating of 7+.

Crystal SOV-Solvent Based Jet Inks For Outdoor Vinyl Display
Crystal SOV series of solvent based jet inks is designed for printing outdoor display graphics using Drop-on-Demand Piezo ink jet devices. The binder resins and solvents are particularly suitable for vinyl substrates and the use of high light-fastness pigments (Blue Wool Scale rating 7+) means that output can be used for outdoor applications. With a suitable substrate and correct application output should withstand 1 year plus exposure.
Careful formulation and rigorous manufacturing controls ensure trouble free running.
Inks in this range have achieved approval from print head manufacturers, contact SunJet for a comprehensive reference guide.
The most suitable SOV ink set for an application will depend on the viscosity range most suited for the print head of choice. SunJet will be pleased to offer guidance.
Inks in the SOV set are available in low strength shades to accompany the full strength primary colours.
Set 1. Higher Viscosity
This set of inks are most suitable for print heads requiring a higher viscosity ink range.
Set 2. Mid Range Viscosity
This set of inks are most suitable for print heads requiring a mid range ink viscosity.
Set 3. Low Viscosity

Crystal SPB-Solvent Based Jet Ink for Paper and Board
Crystal SPB solvent based jet ink is designed for printing onto paper and board substrates, especially in the packaging sector, using drop-on-Demand Piezo ink jet devices. Based on a blend of FDA approved solvents this pigmented ink offers good nozzle open times. The ink dries chiefly by absorption into porous and semi-porous media such as packaging board.

Typical Physical Properties
Crystal OPB- Oil Based Jet Inks for Paper and Board
Crystal OPB series of oil based jet inks is designed for printing through DOD printheads. The non-volatile (non-drying) oil base of the ink provides exceptional head/nozzle stability and reliable running with minimal head maintenance. Due to the nature of the oil base though, the inks are only intended for use on absorbent substrates. All the products are coloured with light-fast pigments (Blue Wool Scale rating 7+).

Crystal ODD-Oil Based Disperse Dye Jet Inks
Crystal ODD series of jet inks are oil based and contain disperse dyes for the decoration of polyester containing textiles. The non-drying oil base of the ink provides exceptional head/nozzle stability and reliable running.
The disperse dye is transferred into the textile by application of heat, which causes the dye to sublime into the polyester material.
