Fujifilm: New inkjet pigment dispersion manufacturing plant

Fujifilm Imaging Colorants, a U.S. subsidiary of Fujifilm Corporation, will construct a new production plant for pigment dispersions, which is a colorant for water-based pigment inkjet inks.

The construction of the new plant will start in April 2021 and is scheduled for completion by 2022. The investment for this construction is approximately 19 million USD (16 million EUR).

Applications for inkjet are expanding into industrial fields such as packaging printing in addition to commercial and publishing printing. In particular, there is a growing need to use water-based pigment inkjet inks, which have low environmental impact and potential to meet requirements for food packaging safety compliance.

Water-based pigment inkjet inks

Currently, Fujufilm Imaging Colorants in the U.S. is a water-based inkjet ink manufacturing facility. By adding the new production plant for pigment dispersions (the main colourant in water-based pigment inkjet inks), it wants to be able to produce consistent, fully-featured water-based pigment inkjet inks built with Fujifilm’s own core dispersion technology.

Pigment Processing

This monograph is a comprehensive practice-related exposition of the fundamental principles of pigment processing. It provides a complete survey of the theoretical principles and practical results of pigment application covering all aspects from the physical characterisation of pigments, the optical properties of pigmented systems, the rheological behaviour of pigment dispersions to the actual dispersion process. Indispensable for chemists, physicists, colourists, technicians as well as laboratory assistants engaged in research, development, application or production in the pigment industry but also to those in the relevant technical colleges and research institutes.
