White against a dark background
Thanks to the rapid development of water-based digital printing for industrial applications using “Piezo Drop on Demand” technology, an increasing number of new applications are emerging. The premium digital printing inks from ARCOLOR play an important part when it comes to fulfilling the highest decor industry criteria. Print quality, setting stability and printing consistency is given.
Until now, digital printing mainly concentrated on the CMYK color garment plus customized colors, which hampered design development when non-white substrates were being used. The reason: A light background has always been a prerequisite for achieving a particular color.
This problem is currently solved either by selecting a white substrate or using appropriate analog white printing beforehand. This second alternative in particular increases the overall complexity and the costs (additional analog process, bigger batch sizes, high-precision registration alignment, more waste and storage capacity etc.).
