About ZINK® Zero Ink® Printing Technology
ZINK® Zero Ink® Printing Technology from ZINK Imaging is a revolutionary approach to printing that makes it possible to print in full-color without ink cartridges, ribbons or toner. The key to the ink-free system is the patented ZINK Paper®, an advanced composite material embedded with cyan, yellow and magenta dye crystals and with a protective polymer overcoat. Before printing, the dye crystals are colorless making ZINK Paper look like regular white photo paper. The ZINK Smart App Printers use heat to activate and colorize these crystals. The result is full-color, high quality, long-lasting and durable images.
