What is the shelf-life of eco-solvent ink?
The ink shelf-life takes 12 calendar months from production date. The storage temperature is +5 - +35°C.
How is eco-solvent ink cured?
The solvent in the ink dissolves the media surface, and the pigment enters the structure. After applying the ink material goes through fan drying system and infrared drying, whereby the solvent evaporates, and the pigment remains. Double material drying system with a 3-zone heating installed in NEO Art printers enables printing at high-speed mode without being afraid that the ink smears or time to dry is not enough.
