Nazdar 270 Series UV-LED ink set designed with ambient temperature-controlled printheads

Nazdar Ink Technologies has announced the global availability of the 270 Series of UV-LED inks. This general graphics/product print ink set has been specifically designed for UV-LED curing with ambient temperature-controlled printheads.

The Nazdar 270 Series low viscosity, low-odor inks offer a replacement for UV-LED printers that do not require an ink to be heated to jet at a certain specification. The vibrant inks deliver long-term exterior performance with proven resistance to UV degradation and color fade.

Adhering to a number of both flexible and rigid substrates including vinyl, styrene, sintra, foamboard, and polycarbonate, the cost-effective inks have been formulated to provide 2 years’ outdoor durability when mounted vertically.

On the introduction of the new ink set, Josh Lutz, Nazdar’s Global Market Segment manager for UV Digital Inkjet Inks, comments, “The 270 Series inks were developed in direct response to feedback from end-user customers regarding the globally-successful 260 UV-LED Series inks. The new updated formulation delivers a stronger color strength with a noticeable increase in black; lower odor to accommodate office environment printing; and an increased surface cure response to lesser powered LED units.”

“As with all our ink solutions, the 270 Series are covered by one of the most comprehensive warranties in the market which enables businesses to confidently take advantage of the increased efficiency and cost-effectiveness offered by Nazdar’s fully field-tested products.”

With manufacturing facilities in the United States and Great Britain, Nazdar offers its growing network of customers worldwide the most comprehensive selection of UV, water- and solvent-based inkjet inks, screen printing inks, and flexographic inks available in the market. Whether printing indoor or outdoor applications, on paper, plastics, metal, glass, or containers and packaging, there’s a Nazdar ink that’s right for every job.

2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.

The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry. While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.

The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.

Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.

Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
