Canon has many inks and ink technologies, and Canon Finetech Nisca also develops its own original inks and technologies for various industries and applications, including dye inks with clear and vivid colors as well as pigment inks that faithfully reproduce text and colors.
The text and image quality required vary according to the industry and the application.
For example, some images require high color reproducibility, others require high print density, and still others require accurate barcode reading.
In addition to image quality, there are other requirements such as water-resistance and long-lasting colors.
Canon Finetech Nisca refers to such features collectively as “image fastness” and devotes much effort toward their further development by focusing not only on ink but also on the printing media, considering various factors such as resistance to water, abrasion, light, ozone, and air.
Our inks can be used for a long period of time and can be discharged in a stable manner. In addition, they do not damage equipment and they do not exert harmful effects on people, animals, or the planet.
Our three core technologies are ink technology, print-head technology, and print-media technology.
