Water-based white ink

Structure of a resin particle used in white ink

Epson's newly developed white ink is made using special hollow resin particles. As well as having a low environmental impact thanks to being water-based, this ink is also easier to handle because it is lighter and less prone to settling than conventional white inks, which use titanium dioxide for color.

An efficient proofing process with a low environmental impact

As all of the ink colors are water-based, they are low-odor, which also makes them suitable for office environments. In addition, these inks help save energy because, unlike their solvent-based or UV-curable counterparts, there is no need for heaters, lamps, or ventilation equipment. Epson inks enable a low environmental impact and efficient proofing process.

  • Employing ultra low-odor water-based inks, the Epson Stylus Pro WT7900 does not require a special operating environment.
  • Low-power because there is no need for heaters, lamps, or ventilation equipment used with solvent-based or UV-curable ink printers.
  • ENERGY STAR® qualified.
