Ultrachrome K3 ink

Epson UltraChrome K3 Ink - the covered ink of a pigment of high density pitch. It arrives to two Black-and-white types and Colour. It has a wide color scale for both types. The black palette consists of three shades of the black - Black, light-black and light - light-black. The color palette consists of standard blue color, light blue color, purple, light-red and yellow. Oh, and it has two users replaceable ways of black ink - the photo and opaque glass!

Now you will ask a question that is so special K3 about Ultrakhroma. Simple comparison between traditional production of ink and ultrachrome, process of K3 will answer a question - traditional ink, was made, grinding particles blackened mechanically to the smallest size of a particle which can be reached mechanically; now the main inconvenience here - energy and therefore cost. You would ask a question as energy is included into a picture. The process being mechanical and made under pressure, demands a significant amount of energy and smaller, the particle measures more than demanded energy, and energy is expensive!

The second inconvenience - that the size of a particle isn't homogeneous and can't cope, again because process the mechanical process of a grinding placed simply!

Both from aforementioned inconveniences are overcome in Ultrakhroma K3 production. Process - the chemical process demanding insignificant energy. Pitch is placed in the environment based on water where to particles allow grow in environment which operate. As soon as particles reached the desirable size, they are removed from environment and processed, that
