Seiko I Infotech Announces the World´s first* Fluorescent Ink

Colourgen, the exclusive UK distributor for Seiko I Infotech, has announced the immediate availability of new fluorescent ink for the ColorPainter W-54S and 64S mild solvent wide format printers.

The two new colours are Neon Yellow and Neon Pink, which have been optimised to work with Seiko's ColorPainter GX inkset. They are the world´s first* mild solvent fluorescent inks.

The new colours can be used as spot colours or as part of the traditional CMYK process. By mixing the fluorescent colours with the standard process colours, the finished output takes on a fluorescent effect.

A variety of other fluorescent colours can also be created using this method.

Melanie Enser, Product Marketing Manager for Colourgen says: "These new fluorescent inks provide brilliant eye catching colour under normal lighting conditions. They produce spectacular results, particularly for short-term POS applications, special events and trade show decorations. Seiko's Neon inks create signs and graphics that stand out in dark environments such as amusement arcades, night clubs, casinos, pubs, bowling alleys, indoor amusement parks, indoor cart tracks, discotheques and much more."

Supplied in 500ml cartridges the new ink can be used with the ColorPainter W-64s and W-54s running SII's ColorPainter GX inkset. The fluorescent ink is easily exchanged with the light colours. Light Cyan and Light Magenta in the ColorPainter W-Series printers.
