Sun Chemical launches Streamline ESL 2 High Print Quality, Low Odour eco-solvent ink series for Roland Pro 4 printers


WEXHAM SPRINGS, UK – 7 September 2015 – Sun Chemical, the world’s leading manufacturer of printing inks and pigments, is today launching the Streamline ESL 2 range of eco-solvent inks, which have been designed specifically for use as a direct alternative to Roland Eco Sol Max II inks in the Roland Pro 4 (XF 640, XR 640, Versa Express RF 640 and Versa CAMM VSi) series of eco-solvent wide format printers.

Streamline ESL 2 is Sun Chemical’s latest addition to its Streamline product range to use the HPQ-LO (High Print Quality – Low Odour) eco-solvent chemistry platform, which offers a significant advantage for printers working in confined environments. The seven colour ink series includes CMYK with a revised nickel-free yellow ink, Light Cyan, Light Magenta and a new Light Black ink. ESL 2 has been perfectly colour-matched to the Roland Eco Sol Max II ink series, eliminating the need for re-profiling when converting from the original inks. Furthermore, it can also be intermixed with the Roland inks to allow for easy transition without any waste.

Explains James Gould, Product Manager, Digital Aftermarket at Sun Chemical, “To guarantee exact reproduction to the Roland inks, the development of ESL 2 included the selection of a completely revised yellow pigment as well as the introduction of Light Black.”

James continues, “The inks have gone through stringent tests, both in-house and at beta customer sites across Europe, to ensure a robust ink formulation that can deliver the highest standards across multiple print settings and substrate types. Results have also shown that ESL 2 offers excellent outdoor durability and is superior to the Roland inks for resistance to alcohol when printed on suitable media, ensuring customer graphics maintain their highest quality over time. We are therefore confident that Roland Pro 4 users will agree that ESL 2 exceeds other inks in print quality and performance, allowing them to benefit from the full potential of their latest generation Roland eco-solvent devices.”

ESL 2, developed and manufactured at Sun Chemical’s global headquarters for inkjet at Midsomer Norton, UK, is available in 440ml cartridges and 1 litre ink bottles. These can be used in Sun Chemical’s Streamline range of bulk ink feed systems, which have been designed specifically to meet the performance demands of the Roland Pro 4 printers and to offer improved productivity and reduced costs for customers.

Sun Chemical will continue providing its popular ESL HPQ LO ink for customers using Roland’s established Pro 2 and Pro 3 platforms.
