Prism Inks introduces Self-Dispersing Dye-Sublimation Ink

13 February 2021: US-based Prism Inks achieved a major technological breakthrough with the release of self-dispersing dye-sublimation Inks. This new technology is now part of its SubliMate Dye Sub Ink product line for DX and TFP series of printheads, as announced by the company. GO SubliMate Ink with self-dispersing dye sublimation technology is available immediately through the Graphics One distribution channel and via OEM printer providers.

The significance of self-dispersing particles is that the dye-sub particles repel one another and, as a result, materially increase jetting reliability, image quality, shelf life and color consistency. Traditional dye-sub inks have particles that over a period of time start to combine and eventually cause nozzle dropouts, or worse, complete clogging of the printhead, says Amir Ajanee, CEO of Prism Inks.

This introduction of self-dispersing technology in our dye-sub inks is a significant achievement by the Prism Inks R&D team in our Sunnyvale, Calif. location. This ink provides new capability to the dye-sublimation market with the superior print performance derived from this major enhancement.

Prism Inks dye sub inks uses nanoparticle and nanofiltration technology ensuring you the utmost jetting reliability. “We use dyes that transfer at lower energy, which provides a maximum dye transfer from paper to fabric giving your prints rich and vibrant colors. Our black dye sub ink is developed with the perfect mixture of color dyes,” adds Amir.

Launched in 1999, Prism Inks, Sunnyvale, California, is one of the largest ink producers in the USA. Prism has state-of-the-art 35,000 square foot facility with in-line computerized manufacturing for all high volume inks. In conjunction with its OEM partners, tests have been developed to inspect all incoming packaging and raw materials for the highest quality.
