What is Cluster Technology?
Cluster Technology is J-Lab’s latest innovation to create a more stable ink. Standard sublimation inks consist of solid particles bouncing off each other, thus they are inherently unstable. The pressure from feeding systems and the faster acceleration of high- speed print heads causes distortion of the molecular structure. J-Lab’s cluster technology creates an ordered molecular structure and reduces the ink’s viscosity for better printability. The ink molecules are now consolidated into clusters and pass through the piezo print heads without alteration; the molecules remain in a uniform structure. Cluster technology allows sublimated inks to perform exceptionally well in high speed printers.
Our inks made with cluster technology are used on printers such as:
Mimaki JV5/ JV33
Any OEM wide format printer
