Nazdar announces 708-series ink

Nazdar Ink Technologies has introduced a new set of UV LED inks, the 708-series, that have been designed for use with Mimaki’s UCJV300 and UCJV150 large format printers.

Nazdar’s 708-series ink is a direct replacement for Mimaki’s LUS170 for the UCJV300 and UCJV150 printers.

The 708 series are said to be a straightforward replacement for Mimaki’s LUS170 Series. The set comprises CMYK plus light cyan, light magenta and white with a clear chip but not ink also available for those printers originally configured for clear ink.

These new 708 Series inks are said to be closely colour-matched and chemically-compatible with Mimaki’s original inks. It’s possible to switch the inks over one at a time as each colour runs out and is not necessary to flush or purge the ink or to reprofile. Nazdar says this ink offers long term exterior performance with proven resistance to the effects of UV degradation and color fade.

The inks come in 1L containers that are designed to fit Mimaki’s Cap B Assembley, and they come with a chip that mimics the LUS170 ink.

The 708-series ink is suitable for a range of substrates including vinyl banner, pressure sensitive vinyl, window cling, polyester film, coated papers and backlit fabrics

Josh Lutz, market segment manager for Nazdar’s UV Inkjet Inks, commented: “Nazdar UV inkjet ink users worldwide continue to benefit greatly from the high quality and consistency of our inks. Our new plug-and-play compatible inks continue to meet the needs of our partners in the market.”

It should be pointed out that using third party inks will almost certainly invalidate any warranties for the printer though can lead to useful cost savings, particularly for older printers. It’s also worth noting that Inktec also produces a third party ink for the same Mimaki printers.

Nazdar is also planning to introduce two further ink series to replace Mimaki’s LUS120 and LUS150 inks with further details to come on these in the next few months. In the meantime, you can find more information on the 708-series at
