• Armor creates new industrial inks business

        • European producer of inks jet cartridges, Armor, has branched out, launching a new business dedicated to the development and the production of industrial inks, created for use on a variety of more complex materials.

          Marking a first for the French Group, the range include inks for industrial decors intended for printing on glass, for floor coverings or wooden furniture, as well as textiles. Other innovative applications include functional inks that are strategic in the fields of energy or cutting edge electronics. These high value added inks can be found, for example, in conductive inks intended for printed electronics, insulating inks or photo-catalytic ones that contribute to cleansing the air.

          Hubert de Boisredon, Armor's Chairman & CEO said, "this new business is the fourth pillar in the Armor Group's expansion. The company's ambition is to offer innovative technology grounded in sustainable growth. Digital printing is used to print ‘on demand’, eliminating stocks and therefore encouraging material savings in colourings and substrates. We are aiming for very high growth markets, making available our world renown expertise in inks, our R&D that is resolutely targeted at sustainable growth and our production machinery that is immediately available.”

          To complete the project, Armor bought teams of chemists throughout Europe to its lab. The final inks formulation took place in Germany, ready for manufacture at the Group's Polish facility. As the the fourth pillar in the Armor Group's expansion, the first industrial partnerships were set in place at the start of 2016.

          The latest venture marks a natural diversification for the Group that has specialised in inks chemistry since 1922 with the first applications related to carbon paper and typewriter ribbons. In expanding its business, the Group has continually improved and expanded, serving products and solutions in inks jet and laser printer cartridges, thermal transfer ribbons, current collectors for En’ Safe batteries, third generation photovoltaic films.
