SensiJet SX

SensiJet® SX is a breakthrough technology that marks a step-change in the eco-sustainability of digital printing processes onto non-porous and semi-porous substrates. SensiJet SX is a platform of innovative water-based inks formulated to provide best application performance on industrial and graphics materials.


The inks developed under the SensiJet ® SX platform are based on carefully selected components, designed to offer adhesion onto non-porous substrates without use of any volatile component or substance causing concern in regulated applications (food packaging, skin contact items, etc.). Solutions can be developed to satisfy the requirements of many applications, adjusting parameters such as adhesion, flexibility, delamination, fastness, etc. for use with most printing systems using a piezo printhead. The technology can also offer superior performance on semi-porous and porous substrates.

Substrates and Applications
Sensient’s SX technology can be applied to a wide range of non-porous materials that typically cannot be printed with water-based inks, including:

  • Polyethylene
  • Polypropylene
  • Vinyl
  • Metal

SensiJet® SX is also compatible with a wide range of porous substrates such as:

  • Coated papers (clay and resin)
  • Uncoated paper
  • Textiles

SensiJet® SX is ideal for a variety of regulated and non-regulated applications including:

  • Industrial decoration
  • Sign and Graphics
  • Toys and accessories
  • Footwear
  • Packaging including food packaging

Environmental benefits

  • The inks developed under the SensiJet® SX platform have been designed to have a low impact on the environment in use and in production, as well as to meet the modern environmental and regulatory requirements.
  • In line with the growing movement to offer the most environmentally mindful products possible, the SensiJet® SX technology is the answer to printing on non-porous and semi-porous materials without the use of solvent or UV curable inks, making it the ideal solution for use in regulated markets and applications.

Overview

SensiJet SX inks are suitable for printing onto a range of porous and non-porous materials. Application suitability should be verified

How to use

Printing

SensiJet® SX inks are tested on different industrial printers. The suitability of the inks for individual machines and models needs should be validated.

For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate must be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).

Fixation

If heat is applied during the printing process (45°C to 60°C recommended), the ink will dry and set immediately. The fixation requirements for each application and print speed should be validated.

 

Sports footwear

Sports footwear

Digital printing creates a huge potential for personalized footwear. Be it a fully customized pair of training shoes or adding a personal touch to an existing pair of shoes, inkjet printing allows any design to be printed directly onto a finished shoe or during the manufacturing process, as a one off or in multiples for the same cost per piece.

Building Wraps

Building Wraps

Thanks to digital printing companies can add personalization and branding to the construction site to maximize visual impact and exposure during a build. From full-scale building wrap to branded insulation board or workwear, inkjet printing can add significant value and brand appeal. People will stop, stare and ask – is it real or an illusion? Without compromising on productivity, Sensient’s product range can make your image really stand out.
