Global supplier, NUtec Digital Ink is expanding its Diamond eco-solvent product offering with new GBL-free ink versions. This move supports NUtec’s new product strategy which includes the introduction of more environmentally and operator- friendly digital ink alternatives for its worldwide customers.

The Diamond GBL-free range will include the D10-GF-MS21 which will be chemically & colour matched to Mimaki® SS21 and designed as a back to back replacement, while the D10-GF-ESM will be chemically & colour matched to Roland® Eco-Sol MAX™ inks.

A key feature of the GBL-free Diamond ink range is that no flushing or profiling will be required when converting from OEM inks. It will also be a low smell ink with excellent outdoor durability, superior abrasion and chemical resistance.

The Diamond range will provide excellent media compatibility across a broad range of self-adhesive and flexible substrates. All NUtec’s ink products are supported by NUtec Digital’s Ink Delivery System Warranty.

NUtec also offers its customers a HAPs-free ink alternative through its Emerald range of Environment Responsible Product or ‘ERP’ inks.  Both the Diamond GBL-free and the Emerald solvent ink ranges eliminates the use of controlled or restricted substances as defined in specific regions and countries.

Technical Director of NUtec, Paul Geldenhuys notes, “NUtec is continually working on alternative versions of traditional ink chemistries to ensure a healthier, cleaner environment for its customers. The Diamond GBL-free and Emerald ERP ranges are prime examples of these developments which are being welcomed by NUtec customers worldwide.”
