We feel lucky to have Film Direct as a resource for our screen printing operation.
No problem with the ink. This is the first refill I have ordered for my refill tanks. My concern with this order is that it does not come with any way to fill your tank with the ink. There is a system you can purchase that includes a tank holding unit and a syringe. There is no way to purchase just the syringe needed to fill the cartridge. I had to use a medical syringe, which was not the correct size to make it work and ended up getting ink everywhere and not able to fill the tanks all the way.
From Film Direct:
Hi Jason, Sorry for the hassle we have currently addressed this issue by adding a syringe to the site.
Now printing my negatives, ultra black - UV does not get through, wonderful stuff.
Use this ink. Period.
We have a screen printing business and use a modified Epson 1430 printer that uses black ink in all six cartridges. We purchased the refillable kit from FilmDirectOnline.com along with this ink. So far so good. We have gone through at least 10 refills on each cartridge so far with no clogging and consistently dark black most of the time. The only time that the ink is a little thin is when the printer doesn't recognize the cartridge is empty. We have found that removing all the cartridges, re-placing them, and then powering the printer on and off seems to resolve the pressurization of the cartridges.
We had been using another brand and it kept clogging the print head.We were doing 2 head cleanings per piece of film.This ink has not clogged once and the films are super dense.If you have a 1430 you WILL want to use this ink.
Quick service and turnaround.
Best ink system out there. I recommend it to everyone I deem worthy.
After filling and running a power cleaning. Two days later we had to run another power cleaning.
-Film Direct adds: Our dye based ink is a liquid dye added to a liquid base. It typically doesn't dry out in a such a short period of time as there are no particulates to dry in the head. Sometimes during an ink conversion air can get sucked into a cartridge or ink line. It may take some time for the air bubble to work itself through the system and into the head. The air bubble will look like a clog but can be easily purged with a head cleaning.
I've used it with their refillable cartridges for 2 years in the same Epson 1400 and It's saved me a lot of money. No problems at all with clogging etc print quality very good.
