New 203 Series inkjet ink from Nazdar designed for longevity

Nazdar 203 Series inks LFR

Nazdar Ink Technologies has released a new set of solvent inkjet inks, developed for long-lasting, high-quality output from Roland wide-format printers.

Promoted at this year's FESPA show, Nazdar 203 Series inks are formulated as direct replacements for Roland Eco Max 3 original inks, but at a lower price point. They are accurately colour-matched to OEM inks in CMYK plus Light Cyan, Light Magenta and Light Black, and can be used in conjunction with Roland Eco Max 3 white and metallic inks.

In addition to the colour vibrancy provided as standard with Nazdar inks – which are manufactured in the UK and USA – the new low-odour Series 203 inks offer superior performance on outdoor graphics and are resistant to UV degradation and colour fade. The range is ideal for commonly used graphics substrates including banner material, flexible and pressure-sensitive vinyl, blue back paper and backed mesh, delivering consistent and reliable print performance even on high-speed printers.

"We promoted the new inks at FESPA in Hamburg this spring and we're delighted to now roll them out to wide-format print businesses across the UK," says Stephen Woodall, Global Market Segment Manager for Aqueous & Solvent Digital. "The high impact, high intensity colours offered by the new Nazdar 203 Series inks are equivalent to the OEM ink set but without the high price tag.

"Nazdar inks are formulated to match specific OEM inks, so print businesses can be assured that a quick ink changeover is all that's required to save them money without losing quality. The only difference their customers will see is lower prices."

Thanks to compatibility with both the ink shades and with all Roland printers engineered to Roland Eco Max 3 inks, the new Nazdar 203 Series cartridges can be installed simply when the old OEM inks run out, either singly or as a full set, without the need for custom profiles in most situations.

The new inks – available in 500ml cartridges and 1 litre bottles – are manufactured to ISO9001 standards and meet all the regulatory targets achieved by Eco Max 3 OEM inks.
