The fast & furious products provide cost effective solution.

Kent Adhesive Products Co. (KAPCO) has introduced a new line of digital media—Racy Color Media. KAPCO developed Racy Color Media with a proprietary topcoating chemistry for inkjet dye based inks, specifically the Memjet waterfall printheads.

The Racy Color Media fast & furious products to be utilized with Memjet desktop label printers provide a cost-effective solution for low-to-mid volume prints for high speeds of six to 12 ips the company said.

The fast & furious products not only print fast but also dry fast and deliver waterfast durability offering a moisture resistance of 60 days on various substrates—film (BOPP, vinyl), nonwoven (Tyvek) and textured paper. KAPCO’s fast & furious products include waterfast IJ Matte BOPP Film, IJ Matte Vinyl Film and IJ Gloss Paper. IJ Matte Paper without waterfast coating is also available. 

Combined with the speed of Memjet technology and print attributes of Racy Color Media application possibilities include water, wine or chemical bottle labels; meat, cosmetic or novelty packaging; drum labels; decals; bumper stickers; and more.

"We’ve developed a proprietary topcoating for media designed for a new technology that will help the digital industry evolve into its next phase," said KAPCO's president, Ed Small. "We’ve entered into an innovative yet competitive market so we’re pleased to have manufactured a broad line of digital media for Memjet users. KAPCO will also be adding to this product line with gloss films, textured paper stocks and more.”

Established in 1974, KAPCO is a manufacturer, custom coater and converter of pressure-sensitive flexible materials and serves many industries.
