UMS inks utilise highly durable colour pigments ground to nano-size level (approximately 150 nm), along with a new blend of milder and non-aggressive solvents and a unique mix of resins. The resin mix ensures optimal adhesion of the pigments to the substrate, creating a uniform and smooth ink layer. Each colour pigment is additionally encapsulated by the resin mix, addressing the specific requirements of outdoor sign & display prints (such as gloss preservation, scuff resistance, abrasion resistance, and chemical resistance) and safeguarding the long-term outdoor durability of the colour pigments.

Their performance and versatility make them an excellent choice for a wide range of printing needs, providing durable and high-quality output for your sign & display graphics projects.

* For heavy-duty applications where mechanical stress is involved (floor, vehicle and marine graphics) or repeated exposure to chemicals, lamination is required. Stabilisation is required prior to lamination.

** Some media will show a slower drying profile. To accelerate drying, infrared heating combined with a gentle airflow is recommended.
