Printing on More Non-Porous Substrates

Kyocera inks enable printing on a wide range of materials, including PVC, Teslin, Tyvek, synthetic and PP synthetic, and foil, without the need for pre-coating.

Dries Quickly

Kyocera inks dry instantly. Printers can send short-run jobs with short turnaround times to the next production step immediately after printing. No waiting or hassles.


Prints with Kyocera ink withstand prolonged exposure to bright light or direct exposure to the sun. The image stays vibrant, making them outstanding.



Kao strives for production and manufacturing methods that reduce the impact on the environment. We have custom formulated Kyocera inks that contribute to increased sustainability.
