Posted: May 2, 2014

Xennia announced the launch of its XenInx Onyx metallic ink for use in a wide range of digital decoration applications. Just-in-time customized digital graphics and package production allows reduced inventories and fast response to market demands—now these benefits are available to users requiring metallic printing.
XenInx Onyx metallic silver ink is designed for a range of applications including packaging, graphics, labeling and product decoration. XenInx Onyx can be used in combination with XenInx Diamond or XenInx Alexandrite CMYK inks to produce a colored metallic appearance. The ink works with a wide range of piezo printheads, and is recommended for use with Xennia printing systems and XenJet inkjet modules using Xennia’s proprietary recirculating inkjet technology.
“XenInx Onyx offers excellent print quality on a variety of porous and non-porous substrates, with reflectivity to rival that of metallic inks printed by screen, gravure or other traditional printing methods,” explains Dr Alan Hudd, managing director of Xennia. “The ink also offers reliable and consistent print performance with good adhesion and durability. XenInx Onyx metallic inkjet ink allows users requiring metallic decorative effects to reap the benefits of digital printing.” For more, visit
