Disperse Ink Specially Developed for the DFP1320 and Ricoh G4 heads
The Easy 3 are really disperse inks, they deliver very high colour saturation, much better fastness compare to the traditional sublimation inks and extremely good sharpness. The inks are suitable for the DFP printer plotter.
Sublimation Ink? Disperse Ink? Which are the differences?
Chemically the Sublimation Ink it is a “variation” of the disperse ink, the “variation” is related to the dimension of the molecule, very small on the sublimation because the technology needs that it sublimate (explode) turning into gas.
Sublimation Ink are the most common in the digital printing, very few manufacture are producing “real disperse ink”.
Property of the Sublimation Inks (Low Energy Disperse dye):1
a) Common product, most ink manufactures have them in catalogue
b) Brilliant color;
c) Week color fastness, light, rubbing
d) Easy printability
e) The sublimation process and related Inks is/was a patent of Sawgrass;
f) No Wash needed
Property of Disperse Inks: (High Energy Disperse Dye):
a) Strong color fastness, light, rubbing;
b) Color less brilliant compare to sublimation;
c) Not common inks;
d) Not easy printability particularly on Epson based printers, Mutoh, Roland, Mimaki, Epson;
e) In most of the cases washing it is needed;
