High Performance Fujifilm Uvijet Inks

Fujifilm Uvijet ink systems are renowned in the industry through Fujifilm’s high-productivity wide format printers. The Uvijet GS ink series, developed specifically for use with the Acuity Ultra Series of printers, produces a low-build ink film with excellent coverage and adhesion, high density vibrant backlits and a durable finish. Fujifilm’s commitment to environmental responsibility has been recognized through achieving GREENGUARD Certification, from UL Environment, for the Uvijet GS range of inks. GREENGUARD helps manufacturers create and customers choose interior products that support healthy indoor environments through low chemical emissions. Certification means that a product has been rigorously tested and shown to have low emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

“The Acuity Ultra is making its Canadian debut at the Graphics Canada Expo,” says Becky McConnell, product marketing manager, FUJIFILM North America Corporation, Graphic Systems Division. “The grand format Acuity Ultra is ideal for the high-end indoor display market, especially for luxury brands.
