Our Aqueous Ink Range

Using replacement inks or adapting your printer to take bulk feed inks can affect the quality of your prints and in addition, affect your printer warranty should something go wrong.

Each range of Epson printers is linked to an Ink Set. These inks have been developed specifically for that printer range to give the maximum balance of print quality and ink usage.



Including either a violet or light light black ink, UltraChrome HDX can produce a wide range of vivid colours and deep, rich blacks and dense shadowed areas.


Help save time and money by ensuring the most accurate results first time. UltraChrome HDX is ideal for creating long-lasting professional photographs, fine art prints and accurate proofs on a variety of media.


Two new inks have been developed specifically for the Epson UltraChrome HDX range in order to increase the density level of the pigment and give a high optical density.


Using Epson UltraChrome inks opens up a whole range of possibilities and produce fantastic-looking proofs with the most accurate colours on the market1. The ink-set comes with the option of either a light light black or violet ink to give users choice, depending on the intended application. Using the light light black option means users can achieve 98% of Pantone2, while choosing violet ink means the gamut increases to 99%1, the highest on the market1.


Bronzing has-been reduced in Cyan and Magenta allowing for the creation of more accurate-looking colours, especially in images depicting human skin and blue sky. The Epson UltraChrome HDX ink has been developed to even out the differences in glossiness of colours, which is one of the leading causes of bronzing.


Epson's new Photo Black ink has a pigment concentration that is 1.5 times higher than previous equivalent inks to help produce denser blacks. See below for a vertical cross-sectional comparison.


The new Matte Black of the UltraChrome HDX ink technology has a raised pigment density. It has the same number of pigments as the Epson UltraChrome K3 ink. See below a vertical cross-sectional view comparison.

superior Eco-Solvent inks

Solvent Inks belong to a group which is generally described as any ink that is not water-based. "Eco-Solvent" inks usually contain glycol esters or glycol ether esters. The resulting prints are waterproof and are often used to print directly on vinyl and signage products.

The newer print models such as the Epson Eco Solvent range are able to print on a broader range of substrates including Canvas Media making them a much more attractive proposition than earlier models. The solvents soften the base material and allow the ink pigments to mechanically latch on to the chemically etched surface. Certain ink manufacturers have different bite based on what solvent carriers they use, which is what makes solvent ink prints more durable than aqueous inks.


An all-new ink flow regulator ensures ink is distributed evenly for a clean and precise finish.

There are various levels of solvent ink ranging from "True or Full Solvent" to "Medium/Mild Solvent" all the way down to "Eco-Solvent". The fume and odour levels decrease accordingly, so does the surface etch of the base material. Most Eco-Solvents, including the Epson range supplied by Tetenal, can be used in an office environment with minimal or tolerable odor levels.

At Tetenal we only stock genuine inks. Using replacement inks or adapting your printer to take bulk feed inks can affect the quality of your prints and in addition, affect your printer warranty should something go wrong. Our solvent printer brand is exclusively Epson, the leaders and innovators in inkjet technology.


Epson UltraChrome GS3 or GS3 with Red produces a wide colour gamut for highly accurate colour reproduction. The SC-S80600 benefits from the addition of both red and orange ink to expand the colour gamut, and the possibilities.
