Nazdar to Distribute Dubuit Optical Disk Inks, Varnishes

October 10, 2005

Nazdar and Encres Dubuit have signed an agreement that names Nazdar as Dubuit’s exclusive distributor of OD Plus Optical Disk inks and CD-R Pack DOC (Durable Overprint Coating) varnishes for the U.S.
OD Plus is a very reactive, glossy line of UV inks and varnishes specifically developed for printing CD, CD-R, CD-RW, DVD, DVD+R, and DVD+RW products. Nazdar will also distribute the OD Plus line and CD-R Pack varnishes in Mexico and Canada on a non-exclusive basis.
The Dubuit OD Plus inks and CD-R Pack varnishes for recordable optical disc media are part of Nazdar’s OD System, which also includes pre-press and on-press chemicals, mesh and emulsion, all specifically configured for maximum, cost-effective performance in optical disk printing.
“Dubuit is known for its uncompromising quality standards, and the company is extremely successful with its optical disk products worldwide,” said Nazdar president Mike Fox. “Adding Dubuit inks to the Nazdar product line and making them available through our SourceOne distribution network is a great opportunity for both companies to provide the U.S. market with a proven, top-of-the-line option in UV optical disk inks.”
“The Dubuit-Nazdar agreement represents an excellent combination of companies that will truly benefit U.S. screen printers,” said Arnaud Maquinghen, vice president of sales and marketing for Encres Dubuit. “Nazdar’s long history and expertise in developing and marketing screen inks, their color-matching capabilities, exceptional technical support and their experience and knowledge of the industry make them the ideal partner for us in the U.S. market.”
