Advantages of Squid Ink ink jet fluids

  • 100% utilization - inks contain no sediment, residue or sludge which clog printheads
  • High quality inks ensure less printhead maintenance and downtime
  • No-clog DOD ink formulations virtually eliminate routine printhead cleaning and valve purging
  • CIJ make-ups are a quality alternative to expensive OEM fluids
  • No flushing required with Squid Ink make-ups - simply replace and continue running
  • Best pricing in the industry

Porous & Non-Porous

A porous surface accepts ink readily. Corrugated cartons are a perfect example of a porous surface. Porous inks dry by absorption. When ink is applied, it immediately “sinks” into the substrate. Because of the nature of the substrate, ink bleed is a factor to watch for. Porous ink is typically water-based, but it may contain other chemicals to enhance its stability.

Non-porous surfaces do not accept ink as readily. Plastic containers are an example. Non-porous inks dry by evaporation. When the ink is applied, it does not permeate into the substrate. Instead, it remains on the surface until dry. Naturally, dry time is a critical factor for non-porous surfaces. The ink is typically solvent-based and contains chemicals that help produce a durable image.

Print Surfaces

Squid Ink's printing systems are engineered for industrial strength operation and function continuously in harsh, real world environments. The Inks are designed to print on a variety of substrates.
