Valhalla, NY—Fujifilm Imaging Colorants announced the availability of an expanded range of colors in the Fujifilm RxD inkjet pigment dispersions ink series.
A water-based inkjet ink formulation, the series now offers dispersions in orange PO71, green PG7 as well as violet PV23 pigments. Further, they are now available worldwide through Fujifilm’s Ink Solutions Group.
“In developing the new RxD orange, green and violet dispersions, we’ve carefully selected the best polymers and processing conditions to ensure optimum stability and print performance for our customers, in line with the standard CMYK products already in the RxD product range,” said Grant Murney, product manager of RxD inkjet pigment dispersions.

The new OGV colors are typically used to formulate ink sets that extend the gamut of a print system beyond the color space achievable with CMYK. This is particularly important for achieving higher vibrancy and color accuracy. Moreover, it enables the ability to match brand spot colors in various print applications.
In addition, RxD pigment dispersions are used in Fujifilm’s aqueous ink developments for OEMs. Consequently, they are available to other ink formulators.
Fujifilm’s RxD dispersions are stable and suitable for ink formulation across a range of applications. Fujifilm engineers them with proprietary reactive dispersant technology. Further, it uses a cross-linked polymer to create a secure cage around the pigment. This provides a stable dispersion compatible with a range of components used in inkjet ink formulation. What’s more, the pigments used in RxD dispersions comply with Swiss Ordinance SR817.023.21, making indirect food contact compliant applications accessible.
Last year, Fujifilm announced an expansion within a $47 million investment in its global RxD inkjet dispersion manufacturing capabilities. Supporting its global customer base, the move is part of Fujifilm’s commitment to meet the growing demand for new applications with aqueous inkjet inks.
