Mutoh Eco-Ultra Inks

   

Mutoh Eco Ultra inks are Mutoh's most popular inks for outdoor sign applications on a wide variety of coated and uncoated substrates.  The inks are based on non-aggresive solvents and do not spread any harmful VOCs.  Available in easy to use cassettes and 1 litre ink bags, Eco Ultra inks are Mutoh's third generation of eco inks featuring improved ink fixation, better drying, higher print speeds and improved scratch resistance.  Prints made with Eco Ultra inks are UV and water resistant for up to three years outdoors.  For heavy-duty applications where mechanical stress is involved (floor and vehicle graphics), lamination is required.  Media stabilisation is required prior to lamination.


Mutoh Universal Mild Solvent Inks (UMS)

Mutoh's Universal Mild Solvent inks (UMS) are Mutoh's fourth generation of mild solvent ink.  UMS inks have been specifically developed for high-volume users.  Available in cassettes and bulk 1 litre bottles, UMS inks feature best in class ingredients for optimum speed and quality performance.

The unique mix of nano size, high durability pigments and resins will individually encapsulate each colour pigment, enabling optimum adhesion of the pigments to the substrate and creates a uniform, smooth, gloss-preserving, ink layer.  Output created with UMS inks are water resistant and offer an outdoor UV-resistance of up to three years.  For heavy-duty applications where mechanical stress is involved (floor and vehicle graphics), lamination is required.  Media stabilisation is required prior to lamination.
