Kodak releases new ink and primers

September 14, 2023  By PrintAction Staff

Kodak has developed water-based ink and primer products for its high-speed continuous inkjet technologies – Kodak Stream and Kodak Ultrastream Technology.

The Kodak Ektacolor Inks, used in stream inkjet technology, are formulated to create brighter, clearer, punchier print. It is available for both pigment and dye-based applications. Ektacolor Inks are manufactured using Kodak’s proprietary pigment micro-milling process, which creates fine nanoparticle pigments with a very narrow size distribution.

Kodak has launched a range of Kodak Optimax primers that are said to improve ink receptivity, ink adhesion, rub resistance, and image quality across a huge variety of substrates, including paper, cardboard, plastic, film, and even metalized materials.


“Along with our high-speed continuous inkjet technologies, these inks and primers create a complete inkjet ecosystem with perfectly matched components, all developed and manufactured in-house by Kodak. This helps printers produce a huge variety of applications efficiently, productively and profitably,” said Jim Continenza, CEO, Kodak.
