Absolute Clear Ink
Absolute Clear inks for non-active channels in Epson screen positive printer applications
Many Epson printers used in screen positive applications are dedicated to black only screen separation production, and are never used for printing full color images. These machines normally print using the black cartridge only or multiple black cartridges when used with dedicated screen separation RIP software. The other non-active ink channels on the printer are never used and are essentially redundant. Unfortunately, Epson printers require that these non-active ink channels have cartridges installed and ink flowing through them to prevent print head damage during cleaning cycles. Using regular color pigment inks in these non-active cartridges is both expensive and wasteful, and can cause jet blockages should the printer ever be needed for full color printing in the future. Using the i2i Absolute Clear ink provides a cost effective and ideal solution for keeping print heads clear and fully functioning while enjoying significant cost savings at the same time. Absolute Clear is essentially an ink without any colorant, and is manufactured at the correct viscosity and using the same humectants that are used in regular color inks to preserve print head life. Costing over 50% less than regular color inks, Absolute clear is fully mixable with the original Epson pigment inks and can simply be installed one channel at a time as regular cartridges run empty. Should the printer ever be needed for full color printing in the future, then simply install regular color ink cartridges in place of the absolute clear inks, and a quick purge through using the machines initial fill feature or cleaning cycles will return the machine to full color mode.
If you are using an Epson printer for screen positive printing only, then the i2i Absolute Clear inks will not only provide considerable cost savings but also increase the usable life of your printer. Absolute Clear can happily be used alongside the Epson original black inks so, even if you don’t use our specialist black inks for screen positives, you can still enjoy considerable cost savings from using our products in the non-active channels on your printer and preserve the life of the machine.
