Nazdar upgrades dye sub inks

Quality Print Services (QPS) has reported some success with a new series of high density dye sublimation inks from Nazdar, the NDT600 Series, which are designed for use with any printers using Epson printheads.

Nazdar’s NDT600 dye sublimation ink is designed for use with Epson printheads.

The main advantage of high density inks is that you only need a small amount of the ink to produce strong vibrant colours, which in turn leads to lower ink consumption. In addition, putting less ink on the substrate also means that there’s likely to be less bleed when printing direct to substrate. When it comes to printing to transfer paper, using less ink means that you can print to lower weight, cheaper papers. And of course, using less ink also means that the prints dry quicker.

This ink was released last year and since then QPS says that its customers have used them to produce products as diverse as sports apparel including activewear for rugby players and cyclists; display graphics, fabric banners and flags; bar runners; educational equipment such as play mats; promotional and personalised gift items, and ceramics.

Chris Bailey, managing director of QPS, explains: “Like all Nazdar inks, the new formulation has brilliant reliability, performance and colour density, as many QPS customers have found while experimenting with a really exciting range of products. Great results on ceramics, toys, sportswear and soft signage all demonstrate both the effectiveness of the new NDT600 – and the creativity of our customers.”

This series is a new dispersion but colour matched to Nazdar’s previous dye sub inks, which it replaces. The inks are made at Nazdar’s Stockport facility in the UK. They are supplied in 1 litre bottles for customers using open bulk ink systems and in 2 litre ink pouches to suit the MBIS systems.
