Piezography K6, Special Edition, 60ml, Set of 6 Inks (HD matte only)
Piezography Special Edition K6 ink set for matte printing. This kit includes the new Ultra HD™ matte black for up to 1.84 optical density! Click on detailed description for more information.
Set 6 (HD matte only) is a Piezography ink set for printers with 6 ink positions where only matte printing is desired. These printers include the Epson 1400, 1430, and 1500W. The entire ink set is dedicated to matte printing. It includes the matte black shade 1, and shades 2-6.
However, this set includes the new Ultra HD™ Matte Black that increases dMax to the highest in the entire industry. Epson MK and regular Piezography MK can reach no more than 1.64 on the highest quality media. Piezography Pro Ultra HD™ is a new generation of nano-carbon black ink that can reach 1.84 for nearly a full stop increase in dynamic range!
Because the 1430 is so inexpensive, and the results of this ink set are so amazing - this is one of our most exciting Piezography releases. Ultra HD™ matte black is crazy dark. It is the darkest matte black ink offered by anyone and this includes all OEMs and all other 3rd party suppliers. You will not have seen matte black & white photographs with this level of dMax.
This is a new ink set for the 1430 family of 6 ink printers that we are releasing at the end of 2017. We have fully profiled these printers and the new profiles that include the Ultra HD are now in the Commuity Edition of Piezography software which you can download here. Further, we have included Master Curves for this ink/printer combo which means that you can purchase Piezography Professional Edition software to make your own media curves.
You get a set of six bottles of ink including the new Ultra HD™ matte black, five additional shades of black ink.
