    one question for the ones that use sepiax ink. since my ink suplier for azon dts white ink is not reliable i'm thinking of buy ink from others. but i still don't know if i use sepiax or other brand in my printer.
    actual ink smells like isopropilic alcohol, is opaque like a pigment ink, not transparent like a dye ink, and in the maintenance tank it is like a gel.
    does anybody knows what azon uses in their printer?

    Azon looks like hacked Epson 98xx series printer - look at the control panel - top right - on the printer body. So you can run SepiaX in it.

    It used to say it on their website, but now I can only find a few manufacturer videos referencing it. I had called and talked to them in the past about converting their texpro line to use sepiax but they had reserves about irritants in the inks.

    converting any piezo head printer to run SepiaX is not a big deal - there are other issues to worry about - I f^%& up my printheads after 4 hours of non-stop printing - it was Epson 7800 - completely shot the printhead, nothing would come out. I'm guessing the heat that dries the ink on the media did just that - dried ink inside the printhead - so you want to be careful.

    Actualy it is an modified epson 4880. And yes there is something iritant in the inks. Not the way an ecosolvent ink is. There is something else i cannot explain.

    You must not exceed certain temperature while printing, oterways the ink dries in the printhead.

    Anyway thnx for input. I will contact sepiax about their inks
