Drytac adds ICC profiles to work with a wider range of printers, inks and software

The self-adhesive material manufacturer recently launched its new website, and with it comes thousands of ICC profiles designed to help large-format printers and sign-makers achieve consistent colour across a range of applications.

The Mimaki Colour Engineering team in Japan has created over 1,800 profiles for Drytac’s products that are compatible with Mimaki’s wide-format printers up to 1.6m, including print-and-cut, eco-solvent and UV technologies.

The profile selection also covers all ink configurations available, including SS2, ES3 eco-solvent inks and LUS 170, LUS 175 and LUS 200 series UV-LED inks, and all ink set-ups including CMYKCMYK, CMYKLcLm, and special colours, which Drytac says adds up to “the most comprehensive range of profiles for any materials manufacturer on the market”.

Through working in tandem with printer and software manufacturers, we have made literally thousands of profiles accessible via our website

As well as Mimaki profiles, Drytac also has profiles that compromise nearly 30 HP Latex certifications, profiles and machine settings on the PrintOs portal, including profiles for the new R series; a range from the Roland DG Profile Centre, including all ECO-SOL MAX ink types for VersaCAMM and TrueVIS systems; profiles for OKI ColorPainter; and profiles for Fujifilm Acuity LED 1600 II for both the Caldera and ColorGATE RIP platforms.

The firm hopes to bring a new range of profiles to support the new Ricoh Latex Pro devices soon, focusing in particular on the combination of Drytac’s clear products and Ricoh’s new white latex ink.

Drytac is also working with Caldera, ColorGATE, Onyx and other providers of RIP included with devices, such as Roland Versaworks and Mimaki Rasterlink.

"Through working in tandem with printer and software manufacturers, we have made literally thousands of profiles accessible via our website," says 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 maximise the colour output of their devices."
