Inks Feature Improved Performance to Meet Growing Needs of the Textile Industry

WILMINGTON, Del., May 18, 2016 – DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) is launching new and improved DuPont™ Artistri® inks that will deliver brighter colors, shorter production cycles and higher production throughput for direct-to-garment (DTG) and roll-to-roll (RTR) printing.  The new inks will be featured at the upcoming drupa 2016 trade fair, to be held May 31 – June 10 in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“Artistri® inks have long been considered best-in-class, and these innovations move the bar even higher,” said Eric Beyeler, global marketing manager, DuPont Advanced Printing. “These inks deliver both brighter colors and faster printing capability, which provide a competitive advantage for our customers.”
