Xaar, Cambridge, UK, announced that it appointed Aqua Tint, a South Asian ink manufacturer, an official Xaar Approved Ink Partner. The partnership is the result of a collaboration between the two companies over the past two years, which has produced two Aqua Tint solvent inks (standard and super saver) being approved for use with Xaar 128 printheads.
Xaar says that Aqua Tint, based in Mumbai and Vadodara, India and the US, has built a strong reputation as a supplier of consistent-quality solvent inkjet inks and are a valued contributor to Xaar’s growing portfolio of approved inks, reinforcing Xaar’s open ink policy. Aqua Tint uses quality raw materials and manufactures its inks under very strict quality paremeters.
“The partnership with Xaar is very important for us,” says Saurabh Goswamy, company director of Aqua Tint. “The digital ink market for large-format printers is a rapidly expanding part of our business, and by working with Xaar, we can ensure we continue to develop and deliver high-quality and reliable inks. We are looking forward to announcing further Xaar-approved inks for a range of Xaar printheads over the next few months.”
“Our strategy to partner with specialist ink manufacturers results in a wide range of inks being approved for use with Xaar-enabled digital printers to deliver superior results,” says Neeraj Thappa of Xaar India. “Aqua Tint has a good track record of working with us. ‘Approved’ ink status is gained by successfully completing rigorous test criteria, which includes materials compatibility, printhead-lifetime testing, print performance, and extended reliability testing.” For more information about the companies, visit www.xaar.com and www.aquatintinks.com.
