Ink development and ink production
In our laboratory, we develop inkjet inks, solvent inks, stamp inks and other industrial fluids. We create ink recipes with the objective of achieving perfect functionality and colour rendering. The ink production of Octopus Fluids GmbH & Co KG is optimised to ensure that our inks provide the required physical and chemical properties at a consistent quality, meeting the high requirements of the numerous and special printing systems.
In accordance with the customer’s specifications, our chemists develop process inks that differ from the conventional inkjet, solvent or stamp inks used by known manufacturers of printing systems. With Octopus Fluids, both individual orders and special industrial production processes are expected to produce flawless results. Our chemists take any particularities, such as special requirements for high volume printing (as used in packaging printing and with franking and dating machines in labelling technology) into account in the development. Furthermore, the products are optimised to produce perfect print results on “difficult”, coated or laminated surfaces, and for a high resistance against extreme temperatures and weather influence.
However, the real challenge in the ink development starts long before that. Even the conventional inkjet ink for customary desktop printers has high requirements. For example, exact colour rendering on various kinds of paper is an important quality criterion. The print result has to be flawless on cheap copy paper, on business letter paper and on expensive photo paper, whether it is black, cyan, magenta or yellow or the combination of all the colours.
Dr. Kai-Oliver Schäfer, our graduated chemist with profound knowledge and many years’ experience in the field of physical chemistry, and his colleagues develop inkjet and process inks for individual and industrial applications for you.
