Solvent-based thermal inkjet inks for HP and Funai printheads provide new solutions to old problems encountered when inkjet printing on metal, plastic, and other non-porous substrates. Water‑based inks just aren’t made to print well on certain substrates–but that’s where solvent inks deliver true value.
We’ve expanded our array of high-quality solvent‑based inks to support printing applications and substrates in multiple industries, including:
Glossy Paper and Cardboard
Marking & Coding

Our customers have relied on these solvent-based inks to solve many common printing problems.
Bear ink is a black ink that does not require a UV curing lamp, and often, does not need a conventional infrared dryer.
Shark ink performs well in very humid packaging environments and provides low maintenance, good adhesion, and water-fastness.
Sigma ink for HP 45si Specialty Printing Systems offers industry-leading decap time of 12 hours and shelf life of 24 months. The ink delivers a richer black that adheres to more challenging substrates.
Sirius ink is formulated for adhesion to tough substrates and retains a high optical density.
Solv-Jet ink is formulated to print on difficult substrates while maintaining a darker image and improved long-term recovery.
For Piezo DOD printheads, our solvent‑based inks are used in fast dry, spot colors, and specialty formulations. Solvent‑based Piezo DOD inks are commonly used to print on a variety of non-porous substrates such as:
