SensiJet SX is a breakthrough technology that marks a step-change in the eco-sustainability of digital printing onto non-porous and semi-porous substrates. These innovative water-based inks ensure superb performance on industrial and graphics materials.
SensiJet SX inks are based on carefully selected components that offer adhesion onto non-porous substrates without any volatile components or substances unsuitable for regulated applications (food packaging, skin contact items, etc.). Adjusting parameters such as adhesion, flexibility, delamination and fastness enables the development of solutions for many applications. SensiJet SX can be used in most printing systems using a piezo printhead. The technology can also offer superior performance on semi-porous and porous substrates.
Substrates and applications
Sensient’s SX technology can be applied to a wide range of non-porous materials that typically cannot be printed with water-based inks, including:
SensiJet SX is also compatible with a wide range of porous substrates such as:
- Coated papers (clay and resin)
- Uncoated paper
SensiJet SX is ideal for a variety of regulated and non-regulated applications including:
- Industrial decoration
- Sign and Graphics
- Toys and accessories
- Packaging including food packaging
- SensiJet SX inks have been designed for minimal environmental impact both in production and in use. They meet the latest environmental and regulatory requirements.
- This technology is the answer to printing on non-porous and semi-porous materials without the use of solvent or UV curable inks, making it the ideal solution for use in regulated markets and applications.
SensiJet SX inks are suitable for printing onto a range of porous and non-porous materials. Application suitability should be verified
How to use
SensiJet SX inks are tested on different industrial printers, but users should check their suitability for individual machines and models.
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate must be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).
If heat is applied during the printing process (45°C to 60°C recommended), the ink will dry and set immediately. The fixation requirements for each application and print speed should be validated.
