Roland ECO-UV Ink was especially formulated for the LEC-300’s curing system for perfect curing at all available print speeds, delivering high color density and wide gamut for exceptional images print after print. ECO-UV adheres to a wide range of coated and uncoated media including foils, paper, clear films and vinyl for increased versatility. Instant-drying and flexible, ECO-UV ink produces prints that require no degassing and can be stretched and applied around curved surfaces and edges without cracking. Clear coat gives an unprecedented high gloss finish on output and improves scratch and chemical resistance and outdoor durability.

Unique Ink Configuration
The LEC-300 boasts a unique ink configuration which includes white ink and clear coat in addition to CMYK colors. The high-opacity white ink is ideal for producing rich, dense color graphics on clear, dark opaque and even metallic substrates. The clear coat adds capabilities which includes high-gloss area highlighter (spot varnish), full flood gloss finishing or added durability and special effects such as a 3-dimensional textures (emboss) by printing multiple layers of clear coat for value-added prints. The combination of these features enables the production of exclusive prints that command premium prices, while reducing considerably production costs over conventional workflows by eliminating manual labor and intermediate processes.
Unmatched Media Compatibility
Droplets of ECO-UV ink are cured by the UV lights shortly after they land on the surface of the media, leaving almost no time for the droplets to react or be absorbed by the media. This virtually eliminates any ink and media compatibility issue, making the LEC-300 compatible with a wide variety of coated and uncoated media. Many stock media for equipment such as label printers and offset printers can be printed with the LEC-300 without any special treatment.
With ECO-UV inks, the absence of ink reaction and absorption means colors will be consistent across different media types without requiring profiles specific for the media.
Safe and Hassle Free
Packaged in no-mess 220 ml cartridges, ECO-UV is virtually odorless, VOC-free and safe after curing.
