ACHIEVING A HIGHER DMAX

Two new inks have been developed specifically for the Epson Ultrachrome HD range in order to increase the density level of the pigment and give a high optical density.

NEW PHOTO BLACK INK

Our new Photo Black ink has a pigment concentration that is 1.5 times higher than previous equivalent inks to help produce denser blacks.

ACHIEVEING A REDUCTION IN BRONZING

The Epson Ultrachrome HD ink has been developed to even out the differences in glossiness of colours, which is one of the leading causes of bronzing.
