Roland Orange and Red EUV5 Inks

Get a Bump in Color With Roland Orange and Red EUV5 Inks

CMYK ink sets are limiting when it comes to achieving brand-specific colors. The new Orange and Red options widen the EUV5 color gamut significantly, enabling LEC2-640 and LEC2-330 users to target previously unreachable colors. Reaching these new areas of color will allow you to better and more efficiently reproduce specific brand colors and create the most accurate and professional print projects for your clients.

“The availability of Orange and Red EUV5 inks opens up new creative opportunities for LEC2 users,” said Jay Roberts, Roland DGA’s product manager of UV printers. “By widening the gamut, they further increase the color capabilities of our next-generation UV printer/cutters, allowing for incredibly realistic, eye-catching prints and making it easier than ever to hit specific brand colors.”


Orange and Red Options for Added Color Accuracy

CMYK + Orange + Red expands the color gamut by approximately 20%, thereby increasing the number of Pantone colors reproduced by approximately 200 colors compared to four-color CMYK. Orange and Red process color options allow you to hit specific Red to Orange areas and other challenging color areas with a wide range of new spot color references now available in the new Roland DG Color Library. Specific Pantone® or DIC colors that were previously difficult to match can now be achieved.

The color difference is in the smoothness of gradation and gradients, and the bold contrast and color saturation – providing output with a new level of brightness and complexity. In addition to the new Orange and Red options, EUV5 inks are available in CMYK, Gloss, White and Primer. Together with Roland DG’s new True Rich Color II print setting, these inks produce stunning graphics, with neutral grays, smooth gradations, and natural skin tones.

“In all honesty, the addition of EUV5 Orange and Red ink to the LEC2-330/640 printer/cutter family is nothing short of amazing,” says Roberts. “It really makes the colors on LEC2-produced prints POP! But, don’t just take my word for it – see for yourself how these new inks change the game! As they say, the proof is in the pudding.”

Roland DG’s fast-drying, durable EUV5 inks, including the new Orange and Red formulations, deliver unsurpassed image quality, vibrant color, and exceptional detail. They are also uniquely designed to adhere to a wide range of coated and uncoated media, including foils, paper, clear film, and vinyl.
