Xeikon develops new toner

Xeikon has launched a new toner for its digital label presses. The Ice toner, based on the existing QA technology, is said to be suitable for heat sensitive substrates including PE facestock (polyethylene) and thermal labels. PE is widely used for covering squeezable tubes and bottles that have to be kept away from humidity and chemical solvents as it has a good flexibility and pliability. Xeikon specifically developed the new toner for heat sensitive materials as dry toner isn’t suitable for these applications. It will run on all new and installed Xeikon 3000 Series digital presses, and has already undergone extensive tests in the field with a number of existing customers.
