Fujifilm Imaging Colorants (FFIC), a U.S. subsidiary of Fujifilm Corporation, will construct a new production plant for pigment dispersions, which is a colourant for water-based pigment inkjet inks, in order to accelerate the growth of the global inkjet business. Construction will start in April, and is scheduled for completion by 2022. The investment for this construction is approximately $19 million.
Currently, FFIC has a water-based inkjet ink manufacturing facility. By adding the new production plant for pigment dispersions (the main colourant in water-based pigment inkjet inks), it will be able to produce consistent, fully-featured water-based pigment inkjet inks built with Fujifilm’s own core dispersion technology.
Currently, the development and manufacture of pigment dispersions using Fujifilm’s proprietary RxD technology is limited to U.K. In the establishment of a new dispersion plant in the U.S., Fujifilm promises to ensure the production of the highest quality products and strengthen global supply capacity to meet the needs of a growing industrial inkjet market.
