Dmax™ formulated black inkjet dye by Freehand for stringent film printing demands and blocking UV light during screen exposure.

A product of Freehand Graphics™



Dmax Black Dye Ink™ for film printing is Freehand’s custom UV light blocking formulation used with refillable systems such as refill cartridges and eco tank printers. Available in Canon and Epson formulations in several convenient bottle sizes. Dmax™ Dye black delivers the power of UV light blocking technology necessary to achieve your best screen exposure from your film separations. Reaching densities at or near 5.0, there is no black dye on the market that compares.

It looks like black water, but there is so much engineering that goes into Dmax™ dye ink that dries and cures on film quickly and will not scratch off of quality film brands such as DarkStar™ Film. Dmax™ exceeds the most stringent formula requirements, and is of food grade quality (please don’t drink it). Freehand is proud of its solution and millions of films owe their success to Dmax™.
