aleph’s A22-SP graphic pigment inks are designed to enable inkjet printing directly onto melamine papers and plastic films. Subsequently, the printed designs and colours are transferred onto laminated panels or aluminium foils through an industrial process.
This advanced water-based ink features a newly-developed blend of pigments and binders and is developed with the use of cutting-edge nanotechnology. The innovative ink formulation – combined with aleph’s proprietary printed technology and integrated software – allows to achieve excellent performances in terms of speed and productivity, as well as superior print quality, colour vibrancy and detail accuracy.
In line with all aleph’s products, the company’s A22-SP graphic pigment inks inks comply with ECOLOGO® and feature an extremely low VOCS.

LAFORTE® inkjet technology
With aleph DryerLAFORTE
- Water-based ink
- Extremely low ink consumption of approx. 5gr/sqm*
- No water and solvent consumption due to aleph’s proprietary vacuum belt
- Reduced energy consumption due to aleph’s efficient drying system
- Virtuous environmental impact achieved
- Low ink consumption
Ink consumption may vary depending on the colour profile used, the print resolution and the size of the droplet set.
Extreme Application Flexibility
aleph’s graphic pigment inks enable users to achieve excellent
image quality and definition on several substrates as melamine (MDF), alluminium,etc
Excellent colour rendering
- Wide colour gamut: 6 colours – CMYK plus two light colours
- Excellent Colour Vibrancy
- Excellent Gradations and Nuances
- Photographic Definition of Details
- Double Density system for increased colour quality and saturation
- Colour Fidelity
- Designed for Kyocera’s 300dpi and 600dpi water-based
printheads, implemented for aleph’s technology
- Excellent jetting performances
- Efficient drying system with very low energy consumption
- High wet and dry colour fastness for all colours (up to 12 months in outdoor applications)
- High fastness to light
- aleph A22™ pigment ink features an advanced binder, designed to ensure the printheads smooth operation. Crucially, this resin activates at high temperatures only, therefore it does not clog the printheads while enabling to achieve excellent jetting operability, as well as increased lifespan of the printheads (over 24 months)
