DuPont Advanced Printing announced the launch of DuPont Artistri Xite S1500 dye sublimation ink. The ink is available for original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and printers. Artistri Xite S1500 offers superior product consistency, jetting reliability and colour print performance.
“We are excited to add Artistri Xite S1500 to our family of inks. This is an ink that delivers what our customers expect from DuPont – exceptional color saturation, printing efficiency and innovation. This is the next step as we continue to build our portfolio and meet the growing needs of the digital textile market,” said Eric Beyeler, global marketing manager – Digital Inks, DuPont Advanced Printing.
Artistri Xite S1500 ink is a new digital ink offering for printing on polyester textile substrates. Designed to work with coated dye sublimation papers, the ink meets the needs of quality conscious textile printers in multiple areas including garment decoration, fast fashion/couture, point of purchase signage and trade booth construction.
“Artistri Xite S1500 achieves exceptional colour standards with deep, rich blacks and outstanding colour saturation. It also offers excellent jetting characteristics, which means less cleaning and ink waste, lower down time on press and a more trouble-free workflow. The quality control and manufacturing expertise from DuPont ensures that the ink the user purchases will be consistent and predictable batch-to-batch,” said Ken Hogrefe, technical marketing manager – DuPont Advanced Printing.
Earlier this year, DuPont Digital Inks announced the launch of new and improved DuPont Artistri inks that will deliver brighter colours, shorter production cycles and higher production throughput for direct-to-garment and roll-to-roll digital printing.
