Kao formulates and manufactures a variety of water‑based, oil‑based, solvent‑based, and UV curable inks for the Ricoh Gen 3, 4, and 5 piezo printheads.
Ricoh printheads allow for the delivery of variable drop size, which offers better image definition and lowers costs by reducing ink waste.
Kao strives for production and manufacturing methods that reduce the impact on the environment. We have custom formulated LED Curable inks that contribute to increased sustainability.
This nanodispersion water-based inkjet ink is eco-friendly and specifically designed for printing on flexible packaging, thin films and other non-porous materials.
This eco-friendly inkjet ink is an alternative to conventional oil-based inkjet inks. The ink offers high performance on porous substrates such as corrugated cardboard and other paperboard materials.
Please browse our standard inks. If you’re unsure which ink is best for your application, please send us a sample of your substrate. An ink technician will promptly and thoroughly evaluate your needs and make an ink recommendation to match the printhead model and substrate. If one of our standard inks doesn’t meet your needs, our experienced chemists will customise one that will meet your requirements and specifications.
