ZINK® Printing Technology -- short for Zero Ink® -- represents a true revolution in printing. ZINK produces photo-quality, full-color output without using ink cartridges, ribbons, or toner. With more than 170 current and pending patents, ZINK Technology combines major advances in chemistry, engineering, physics, image science, and manufacturing.
ZINK Technology encompasses both the ZINK Paper® and the intelligence embedded in every ZINK-enabled device. The fundamental concept is simple, yet extraordinary: Heat from a ZINK-enabled printer activates the unique color-forming molecules embedded in the layers of ZINK Paper. Color emerges from the ZINK Paper creating a full-color print.
