Kodak launches KODAK EKTACOLOR Inks and KODAK OPTIMAX Primers


Kodak has developed optimized water-based ink and primer products for its high-speed continuous inkjet technologies – KODAK Stream and KODAK ULTRASTREAM Technology – that enhance the benefits of both technologies in all applications. As part of the launch of new brands that highlight Kodak’s unparalleled heritage in advanced materials and chemicals as well as color, Kodak now introduces KODAK EKTACOLOR Inks and KODAK OPTIMAX Primers.

KODAK EKTACOLOR Inks used in Stream Inkjet Technology, including the KODAK PROSPER 7000 Turbo Press, KODAK PROSPER 6000 Press and KODAK PROSPER Imprinting Systems, are specially formulated to create brighter, clearer, punchier print, at speeds faster than any other commercial inkjet system on the market. EKTACOLOR Inks are available for both pigment and dye-based applications (PROSPER Imprinting Systems only), allowing maximum versatility for our customers.

As a complement to EKTACOLOR and KODACHROME Inks, Kodak has launched a range of KODAK OPTIMAX Primers. By applying these primers, printers can avoid using expensive inkjet-treated papers and other specialty substrates. OPTIMAX Primers improve ink receptivity, ink adhesion, rub resistance, and image quality across a huge variety of substrates, including paper, cardboard, plastic, film, and even metalized materials. In addition, OPTIMAX Primers facilitate the recyclability of printed products by improving deinkability.
