Ms. Masami Kato of the 1st R&D Group, R&D Division, Konica Minolta IJ, who was in charge of developing the new fluorescent colour acid dye inks, commented as follows. "I’m pleased to report that our newly developed fluorescent inks are ready to be launched. By leveraging the chemical technology and know-how which Konica Minolta has developed for many years, we were able to optimise the characteristics of fluorescent dyes. As one of the developers, I hope that these new inks will not only enable users to reproduce a wider range of designs but also help them better demonstrate their originality and gain greater pleasure from their creativity."
Background to the development
There is growing demand for fluorescent colours, especially among manufacturers of competition swimsuits, cycling gear and other sports apparel, as well as fashion apparel manufacturers who place special importance on the originality of designs. Meanwhile, in the market, manufacturers are taking an increasing interest in adding value to nylon products with colorful, attractive patterns, by using inkjet textile printers that can meet the need for small-lot, wide-variety production.
To cater to these needs, Konica Minolta IJ developed two new color inks, fluorescent yellow and fluorescent pink, by applying its proprietary material design and processing technologies.
Currently, Konica Minolta IJ offers a lineup of acid dye inks in nine colours*. With the addition of these two new fluorescent colors, we are ready to better serve customers who are seeking to create a wider variety of designs with high value-added printing.
*The nine colours are: yellow, magenta, cyan, black, orange, blue, light magenta, light cyan, and light black.
