New textile inks from DuPont
DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) will highlight its digital ink offerings for textile printing during the ISS show in Long Beach, Calif., from Jan. 20-22, 2017.
DuPont will show the recently launched DuPont Artistri(R) Xite S1500 dye sublimation ink. Backed by more than 25 years of digital inkjet manufacturing and technical support, the innovative ink is now available for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and printers. It offers superior product consistency, jetting reliability and colour print performance for printing on polyester textile substrates.
In addition to Artistri(R) Xite S1500 for roll-to-roll customers, DuPont will feature Artistri(R) Brite inks for the direct-to-garment (DTG) market. The Artistri(R) Brite textile ink portfolio is available for a variety of print heads from low to high viscosity, delivers high color saturation and best in class white ink. When coupled with DuPont’s excellent production standards, Artistri(R) Brite is the ink platform that will enable printers to migrate to cutting-edge, industrial DTG production.
Shyamal Desai, marketing manager – Americas, DuPont Advanced Printing, said “Artistri(R) Brite inks are oven drying compatible, so as our customers decide to migrate to industrial print heads, we will work with them to increase throughput while still delivering superior colors. This is a very exciting time for the DTG market and DuPont will work closely with our printers and OEMs to ensure a successful transformation.”
In 2016, DuPont Advanced Printing announced the launch of improved DuPont Artistri(R) inks that will deliver brighter colours, shorter production cycles and higher production throughput for direct-to-garment and roll-to-roll digital printing.
“We are continuing to deliver the results that customers have come to expect from DuPont, including superior white opacity, batch-to-batch consistency and excellent color saturation and vibrancy,” said Sam Ponzo, regional director – Americas, DuPont Advanced Printing.
