Versatility in inks

thanks to high density sublimation and reactive dye inks

Mimaki’s MLSb510 and MLSb520 high-density sublimation ink dramatically improves print quality on polyester. The unique combination of ink and machine technologies achieves cost-effective and eco-conscious direct sublimation printing, and is also available on polyester fabrics with vivid and clear colours. Several black inks are offered to produce subtle differences in shades of black.

With Mimaki’s MLRc500 reactive dye ink, cotton, hemp, and silk are dyed beautifully. These dye inks produce vibrant colours, reproduce a wide colour gamut and have water resistance, light-fastness, and rub-fastness due to dyestuff molecule bonding with the fibres.


For even more confidence

our inks are OEKO-TEX certified

Mimaki inks MLSb510, MLSb520 and MLRc500 for the Tiger-1800B MkIII are ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® certified. ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX® is a mechanism by which textile chemical suppliers demonstrate that their products are suitable to print skin-friendly clothing and other textiles for end users.
This certificate therefore constitutes an important decision-making element when purchasing inks for textile production.

This printer includes Mimaki Core Technologies that offer the best print quality, maximum productivity and reduced exposure to risks that can delay production. See below list of core technologies that are included in the Tiger-1800 MKIII.
