With a focus on jetting behaviour, Sun Chemical has designed ElvaJet Topaz SC sublimation ink to have superior drop control on the full range of Kyocera printheads.
“Many textile printers are searching for an ink solution that allows stress-free nonstop production,” said Pete Saunders, global director – digital businesses at Sun Chemical. “Sun Chemical has further enabled this by bringing together our knowledge of the textile and sublimation printing industry and combining it with our core inkjet competency to develop a sublimation ink that removes any need to compromise on colour, print quality or machine up-time.
“This launch is just the latest in a program of new technologies being developed by Sun Chemical to optimize the experience of all digital textile printers with the best colour, application and printer reliability, ensuring that printers can get the best result every time.”
A company press release added: “The new solution increases the ease of use and on printer experience by enlarging the ink operating window for accurate jetting performance. This enables wider cross system compatibility delivering outstanding reliability and reducing the reliance on waveform.
"At the same time, it provides increased image quality with optimized jetting performance across all drop sizes, allowing any design to be printed without compromise. With careful focus on the jetting behaviour, Sun Chemical has designed ElvaJet Topaz SC to have superior drop control at the different available drop sizes on the full range of Kyocera printheads ensuring that it is easier to use day in, day out.
“In addition to the ease of use for the operator, ElvaJet Topaz SC has high colour release from coated and uncoated transfer papers helping reduce waste through lower ink consumption and less colour remaining on the paper after transfer.”
ElvaJet Topaz SC is certified for Eco-Passport by OEKOTEX with no restrictions, meaning any fabric printed with Topaz SC does not need to be re-tested for compliance to the OekoTex Class 100 standard.
