Inkjet inks and dispersions for digitally printed packaging
Ink technologies designed to meet the challenging performance, regulatory and sustainability requirements of the packaging industry.
Supporting sustainable digitization of print for packaging
Changes in consumer demand as well as brand desire to reduce environmental impact are driving an evolution in packaging print production.
Digital printing is opening opportunities to access new revenue streams, through localized production, short-run capability and customization. And to reduce costs through supply chain efficiencies.
The challenge for printer manufacturers is to design systems that deliver on expectations of high productivity and reliability while meeting the complex application and regulatory requirements for packaging.
Ink chemistry and design is essential to enable the next generation of inkjet print for packaging.
Fujifilm is an expert development and manufacturing partner in aqueous and UV inks and aqueous dispersions for packaging. Engaging with us early in your product development will ensure you have the right solution for commercial success.
We provide high performance inks for inkjet print system developments. And we provide high quality dispersions to independent or vertically integrated inkjet ink formulators.

Our experts work with you to implement our products in new and complex packaging applications.
With our focus on inkjet, we’re dedicated to producing optimal ink technologies for precise digital printing.
Optimized for application, system and regulation
Packaging inks must deliver reliable performance in the print system and in the printed application.
They must also be formulated to meet strict packaging regulations and have the durability for downstream processes.
Our expert-led development process ensures ink is optimally formulated and manufactured to meet the complex and specific requirements for packaging.
Global development and manufacturing
We provide a structured collaboration with you to deliver application-appropriate ink or dispersions to specification.
This is enabled by our comprehensive technical resources and world-class global manufacturing infrastructure, which ensures security of supply.
Quality assured manufacturing is strictly controlled to deliver batch-to-batch consistency and stability.
Proprietary RxD® dispersion technology
The pigment dispersion is the foundation of the ink formulation, and that’s why we develop our own dispersion technology. Fujifilm’s RxD dispersions are highly stable, giving the ink formulator wide latitude to create the optimum ink properties for system and application performance.
Fujifilm packaging inks are formulated with RxD dispersions, and we also supply these dispersions to independent or vertically integrated ink formulators.
Enabling your development in digitally printed packaging
Ink for print systems of any scale
Whatever your packaging print system development, we can support you. From single colour late-stage customization, to the highest productivity full colour print systems.
We work with printheads from all the major manufacturers. Printhead and ink combination performance is a crucial part of the system to optimize. Collaboration with Fujifilm ink experts early on in your development enables optimization of components and ink interactions throughout the whole system.
Sustainability in packaging
Fujifilm is committed to delivering a sustainable future, and is aligned with the goals of the packaging industry. We are embedding sustainability features into all new ink and dispersion developments right from initial product specification, considering the production, printing process and life-cycle of the printed product. And as a business, we are fully on the journey to minimize the impact of our operations.
Fujifilm ink technologies for packaging
Fujifilm ink technologies enable reliable, high speed single-pass printing on corrugated paperboard. They are designed with 4Evergreen recommendations in mind, to support sustainability goals, and IDFC compliant inks are available for food applications.
Meeting the needs of fibre-based packaging, and following 4Evergreen’s sustainability guidance, our ink and dispersions technologies bring clarity and flexibility to folding carton. We help you succeed in print performance, and enable recyclability, while meeting your customers brand requirements.
Liquid Filled Carton
Ink in the liquid filled carton segment needs to be resistant to the sterilization processes during pack filling, and then perform throughout the products lifecycle before not hindering the end of life recycling process. By engaging with the expertise of Fujifilm's ink formulators, inks can be developed to meet the desired print and durability performance.
Whether your packaging is for food or non-food customers, ink needs to have the durability and flexibility to provide brands the image quality throughout the packaging materials lifecycle. Fujifilm's ink technology supports this lifecycle, and it doesn't hinder the end of life processing of materials.
Our ink technologies enable reliable, sustainable, and regulatory compliance for both food and non-food label printing. Vivid colors, gloss finish, and extended color gamut options.
