RNJet Ink

When it comes to inkjet printer ink, there are different types available to suit various printing needs and material surface types.

Different RNJet Ink Types

Let’s explore some of the common ink types and their compatibility with different surfaces:

Dye-based Ink: Dye-based ink is commonly used in inkjet printers for general-purpose printing. It provides vibrant colors and high-quality output on porous materials such as paper, cardboard, and fabric. Dye-based ink is known for its wide color gamut and excellent color saturation.

Pigment-based Ink: Pigment-based ink is formulated with microscopic pigment particles suspended in a liquid carrier. It offers enhanced durability and resistance to fading, making it suitable for documents or prints that require long-term archiving. Pigment-based ink is ideal for printing on both porous and non-porous surfaces, including glossy paper, photo paper, and certain types of labels.

Solvent-based Ink: Solvent-based ink is designed for industrial applications that require fast-drying and waterproof prints. It is commonly used for outdoor signage, labels, and packaging materials. Solvent-based ink adheres well to a wide range of surfaces, including plastics, metals, and coated papers.

UV-curable Ink: UV-curable ink is cured using ultraviolet light during the printing process. It offers excellent adhesion to various substrates, including glass, acrylic, wood, and metal. UV-curable ink dries instantly upon exposure to UV light, resulting in prints that are resistant to scratching and fading.

Eco-solvent Ink: Eco-solvent ink is a type of solvent-based ink that contains lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). It is commonly used for indoor signage, banners, vehicle wraps, and other applications where odor or ventilation may be a concern. Eco-solvent ink adheres well to materials like vinyl, canvas, and certain coated papers.


It’s important to note that the compatibility of ink types with specific surfaces may vary based on printer models and manufacturers’ recommendations. Therefore, it’s always advisable to consult the printer’s documentation or contact the manufacturer for guidance on selecting the most appropriate ink type for your desired surface.
