2 0 1 7 • WRAPS • 105 Wrap Essentials NEW LATEX INKS FROM RICOH Ricoh USA, Inc., Pine Brook, New Jersey, announces its new aqueous resin (AR) latex inks for the company's Pro L4130 and Pro L4160 latex printers. The inks are designed to increase performance and cut cure times at an affordable price point. Ricoh is transitioning its wide format customers to AR inks, which will cost much less than their predecessors and boast a 24-month shelf life. AR inks allow wide format jobs on a broad range of substrates—including cloth, bond paper, backlit material or a variety of other media—to be used immediately off the press. Ricoh's AR inks cure quickly, and faster cure times mean faster turn times, which enable shops to take on more business and keep revenue flowing.
