New OCP inks for Epson Claria cartridges available


After finishing the last long-term tests, OCP’s R & D department has recently released a new set of V-Edition inks which were especially designed for a number of new Epson Claria™ cartridges.

Following the trends of the OEM to design and produce more and more ink cartridges with very durable and fade-resistance inks, OCP´s V-edition Inks match these requirements perfectly.  By extensive, comparative tests under precisely defined conditions, OCP proves that key properties such as smudge and scratch resistance as well as light fastness of these particular OCP inks are at least as excellent as of the OEM inks.


In case of the recent Claria™ Inks, the selection of raw materials was exceptionally difficult. Especially the extremely high cost of excellent dyes for the Cyan ink made it necessary to develop two alternative Cyan ink formulations which give the customers the choice between


a) A cyan ink of superb light fastness and durability (equal to Epson Claria™), or
b) A cyan ink with good colour gamut with limited light fastness (for standard printing  purposes)


The names and compatibilities of the new inks for Epson Claria™ cartridges are as follows:

While the new Black, Yellow and Magenta inks are in conformity with OCP´s V-Edition criteria at affordable raw material cost, the V-Edition Cyan “C 140” is of significantly higher raw material cost. OCP had to choose specially selected raw materials as Cyan dyes are most sensitive with regards to light- and UV-fading issues.

The alternative Cyan “C 142” Ink is sold at the same price as the V-Edition Yellow and Magenta, but is less fade-resistant than “C 140”. It is the customer´s decision which of the two Cyan ink formulations is the preferred one.
