The creation and the continued development in our labs of the ZINK® Technology is based on innovations and advances in multiple disciplines such as chemistry, image science, and physics. Critical to the function, performance, and magic of ZINK Technology, however, is the manufacturing of the ZINK Paper®. ZINK Paper was designed to be manufactured using existing photographic manufacturing processes and facilities. And many of the fundamental innovations on which ZINK is based stem from the manufacturing development team.
ZINK Paper® is manufactured in the U.S.A. in our state-of-the art manufacturing facility. ZINK Paper is the key to unlocking the magic of all ZINK-enabled products, so we work hard to ensure we use the highest quality materials and processes.
ZINK Paper® is the heart of ZINK® Zero Ink® Technology. ZINK Paper is an advanced composite material with cyan, yellow, and magenta dye crystals embedded inside and a protective polymer overcoat layer outside.
Not only can the structure and performance of ZINK Paper® be adapted to the needs of various markets and applications, ZINK Paper can be finished in a variety of formats.
