InPrint 2019, 12.-14. November 2019Mortsel (Belgien), )
UNILIN and Agfa joined forces to investigate the feasibility of deploying inkjet printing for high-volume, high-speed production printing of decor paper used for laminate flooring and furniture.
At InPrint, they will present the outcome of their cooperation: specialized water-based ink-primer sets for high-speed roll-to-roll digital printing on decor paper for laminate flooring and furniture. The combination of dedicated, conventionally coated primers from UNILIN and perfectly matched Agfa pigmented inkjet inks delivers a wide color gamut with amazing print quality and low ink consumption. Sharply priced, these ink-primer sets will be competing head-to-head with high-volume gravure printing.
