MUTOH has announced that it has added spot colors; orange, blue and green inks to its proprietary MP31 ink lineup for the ValueJet VJ-628MP and VJ-1628MH printers. Targeting mainly packaging proofing on original substrates, the extra OBG also offers benefits in the signage field when using SAi Flexi.

Mutoh newMP31 spotcolours MP logoThe “MP” in MUTOH MP31 ink stands for Multi-Purpose, and MP 31 ink can print directly on a wide variety of materials, including acrylic, PET, metal and synthetic leather, as well as paper.

Compared to UV ink, it is less uneven and smoother, and produces a natural finish that brings out the texture of the material.

The use of spot color-inks; orange, blue and green added to the basic CMYK inks expands the color gamut and broadens the range of color expression. These inks produce more vibrant and beautiful color expression including vivid orange and green, and deep blue.

Compared to the color gamut of CMYK inks alone, the color reproduction area using spot-color inks has been extended and the saturation has been increased

Main features of MP31 ink

- Weather resistance*, abrasion resistance, and color development equivalent to eco-solvent ink

- High-opacity white ink brings out the original brightness of color inks regardless of the underlying substrate color.

- Natural finish with no unevenness and smoothness compared to UV curable inks, making the most of the original texture of the material.

- Resistant to heat, stretching and bending, and the printing surface does not crack easily when bent.

Printing and processing on polycarbonate and shrink film used for vacuum forming are possible.

- Selectable from 4, 5, 7 or 8-color ink configurations depending on application
