VERSAPASS DYE INKS
Affordable quality printing with
reduced downtime and waste for
a competitive cost per page
EXCELLENT PRINTHEAD RELIABILITY AND LONG LIFE WITH THE
STRICTEST QUALITY
VersaPass inks are manufactured to very tight specifications with extremely low impurity
levels to ensure consistent quality from batch to batch and maximize printhead life.
Advanced dyes have been chosen to achieve the highest image quality and reliability at
the high speeds of VersaPass engines and print components. The VersaPass printhead’s microscopic 1.2 pL ink droplets typically absorb into substrates in milliseconds.
A range of media - from plain paper to matte and glossy - continue to be qualified to
optimize output for specific applications.
Created by Chemists:
Memjet’s team of R&D ink chemists design VersaPass inks while working closely with
printhead designers, color scientists, system engineers, and media specialists. The inks
are finely tuned to jet with extremely high reliability throughout the life of the printhead,
while delivering consistently high-quality output on a range of media.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
VERSAPASS DYE INKS
Lightfastness
Memjet’s VersaPass inks have exceptional lightfastness under various conditions,
particularly when paired with appropriate media. The table below shows the estimated
lightfastness based on industry-standard tests run internally by Memjet. Actual results
may vary depending on several factors, such as media, image content, light intensity,
temperature, and humidity.

Optical Density by Paper Type
The black optical density of VersaPass inks varies depending on media and profile. With
Memjet’s unique 5-channel printhead, users can maximize optical density by increasing
print resolution (up to 1600 dpi) or by choosing to use two channels of black ink for
increased black ink coverage and higher density prints.
Alternatively, if the user prefers speed and lower ink usage, a lower resolution/ink profile
can be chosen. The table below provides representative black optical density on a range
of media.
