Epson UltraChrome HDX pigment ink technology
Representing Epson latest generation of photographic ink technology, the 10-color UltraChrome HDX Ink set redefines the standard for photographic imaging excellence and print permanence. Utilizing newly developed core pigments - including Black inks 1.5 times denser than their previous generation - the level of photographic clarity, optical density and vibrancy sets a new benchmark for Epson. And, with their latest generation of color pigment technology, we ve achieved a breakthrough in print permanence, resulting in prints of exceptional quality that will define your legacy.
Improved black density
Higher-density Black pigments anchor the darkest possible tone in the print, producing a wider contrast ratio and resulting in optically clearer and sharper images - for both color and black-and-white prints.
Increased print permanence
Based upon print permanence testing conducted by Wilhelm Imaging Research Inc., Epson latest pigment ink technology results in prints lasting up to twice as long as their previous generation of ink.
Advanced PrecisionCore printhead technology
Developed to work exclusively with their unique Epson UltraChrome HDX Ink, the PrecisionCore TFP printhead is Epson most advanced printhead to date, achieving exceptional ink efficiency and a higher level of printhead reliability.
