Roland DG Corp. ( formulated its new ECO-UV S to deliver exceptional elasticity and flexibility for graphics produced using Roland’s VersaUV line of inkjet printers. Offered in CMYK+W, ECO-UV S is developed specifically for use with the LEJ-640 printer (64 in., 1626 mm), LEC-540 printer/cutter (54 in., 1372 mm), and the 30-in. (762 mm) LEC-330 and LEC-300A printer/cutters. The company says greater elasticity—up to 220%—allows ECO-UV S prints to mold perfectly to the contours of PET bottles and plastic cups, and ensures flawless results on vacuum-formed plastic that is commonly used for items such as food service trays, auto-parts packaging, and consumer-electronics cases. Users can also create three-dimensional wide-format graphics, including P-O-P displays, signage, and interior décor. The ink is compatible with shrink films and plastics made from PET, OPS, ABS, PMMA, polycarbonate, and more.
