Why should you attend?

Aqueous inks demand is on its peak today thanks to its compliance with VOC regulations. And the shift to aqueous inkjet inks is inescapable. As tradition markets (packaging, textile, industrial manufacturing, etc.) start to shift too, a significant acceleration is expected in the coming months.

However, delivering the right functionality & durability (adhesion, color, abrasion resistance, wash fastness) in an aqueous formulation with the constraints imposed by inkjet printing is not an easy task. The pace of change is so fast, you’ll miss the train if rely on trial & error methods to build your know-how. Join ink-expert Terrence Kenneth and:

  • Shorten your R&D time as you fast-track your understanding of the aqueous ink market.

  • Select the right raw materials by ensuring they have accurate viscosity, particle size and compatibility.

  • Learn about new colorants (dyes and pigments, co-solvents) to enhance your industry-knowledge.

  • Get expert tips to overcome challenges like ink stability, lightfastness, uniform color density, good jetting through the print head, etc.
