Drytac (Bristol, UK), a leading international manufacturer of self-adhesive materials for the large-format print and signage markets, has created thousands of ICC profiles based on popular printer models, inks, RIPs and Drytac media to enable its customers worldwide to take advantage of fast, high-quality, plug-and-print capabilities. Over 1,800 profiles have been created for Drytac by the Mimaki Colour Engineering team at the printer manufacturer’s headquarters in Japan. These profiles are for all Drytac’s products that are compatible with Mimaki wide-format printers up to 1.6m – including print-and-cut, eco-solvent and UV technologies. The profile selection also covers all the ink configurations available (such as SS2, ES3 eco-solvent inks and LUS 170, LUS 175 and LUS 200 series UV-LED inks) and all ink sets including CMYKCMYK, CMYKLcLm, and special colours. In addition, there are profiles for both white and clear inks for all Mimaki UV machines for multi-layer printing. “This adds up to the most comprehensive range of profiles for any materials’ manufacturer on the market,” Drytac added.
The Drytac profile collection also comprises nearly 30 HP Latex certifications, profiles and machine settings on the PrintOS portal – which includes profiles for the new R Series printer, a wide range from the Roland Profile Centre (which includes all ECO-SOL MAX ink types for VersaCAMM and TrueVIS systems, including the latest models), profiles for OKI ColorPainter, and profiles for Fujifilm Acuity LED 1600 II, for both the Caldera and ColorGATE RIP platforms. Drytac is also supported by Epson Europe and Japan, resulting in a constantly expanding range of colour profiles and settings on the Epson Connect cloud service. A complete range of profiles for the new Ricoh Latex Pro devices, in particular combining Drytac’s clear products and Ricoh’s new white latex ink technology, is coming soon said the company. Drytac is also working with Caldera, ColorGate, Onyx and providers of local RIPs included with devices, such as Roland Versaworks and Mimaki Rasterlink.
“Through working in tandem with printer and software manufacturers, we’ve made literally thousands of profiles accessible via our website,” said Shaun Holdom, Global Product Manager at Drytac. “The selection is being constantly updated with more and more colour profiles for all kinds of devices and applications. Additionally, at Drytac we have the in-house capability to provide custom profiles as required for our customers on any of our products, to maximixe the colour output of their devices.” To access the ICC profile library, please visit www.drytac.com/profiles.
