Fast Facts AQ97BK is a new fast-drying water-based ink specifically designed for improved adhesion compared to standard water-based inks. It is capable of printing on coated papers, glossy media, and Tyvek® substrates often without the need for high energy NIR dryers. Demax used the water-based AQ97BK ink to enhance the security of their printed lottery cards. This fast-drying water-based ink replaced UV ink for variable data printing on each individual card. The K600i-based installation prints over 100 million cards annually. Demax AD serves clients from the food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, chemicals, transport, and advertising industries.

Project Background Demax approached Arcon as they required a quick-drying water-based solution for printing on lottery cards. The current solution was not drying in line with the existing production line speeds. UV ink was not an option, as the UV inks can leave a slight raised print which can be problematic for security. For lottery cards, it is essential that the prize remains a mystery.
