Launch of DuPont™ Artistri® Xite Dye Sublimation Inks and Brite Direct to Garment Printing Pretreats
Neu-Isenburg, Germany, May 2nd, 2018 – DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) will highlight new additions to its innovative digital ink offerings during the Fespa 2018 show in Berlin, Germany, May 15–18, 2018.
DuPont is launching its newest DuPont™ Artistri® Brite Direct To Garment (DTG) Pretreat at Fespa 2018. DuPont™ Artistri® Brite P5003 is a fabric pre-treatment product for application onto dark colored cotton t-shirts that enable efficient and consistent printing combined with bright, wash resistant color prints, while Artistri® P5010 is developed for use with white cotton and polyester shirts. P5003 and P5010 offer improved wash fastness, white ink setup productivity and tunnel dry performance.
DuPont also will showcase Artistri® Xite S2500 and S3500 dye sublimation inks, which offer better jetting, image sharpness, intensity of black inks and color saturation when compared to existing solutions. Xite S2500 is a midviscosity dye sublimation ink and Xite S3500 is a high viscosity dye sublimation ink designed for printing on polyester textile substrates.
Balaji Srinivasan, marketing manager, Europe, Middle East & Africa, DuPont Advanced Printing said: “With our newest products, DuPont continues to drive innovation in Digital Textile Printing. The new Brite P5003 and P5010 pretreats for DTG not only make colors pop, but also hold them longer on the fabric with a vast improvement in wash fastness. With this solution, we’ve also taken the first steps in addressing challenges faced when printing on polyester – as Artistri® Brite P5010 pretreat has enabled successful printing on white polyester t-shirts. In the Xite Roll To Roll space, with S2500 and S3500 launches, DuPont further expands its broad portfolio to meet customer demands for product quality and deeper colors.”
Artistri® Xite inks also feature recently launched roll-to-roll pigment inks which achieve greater color with improved workflow efficiency and reduced environmental footprint over alternative printing technologies. The broad DuPont textile inks portfolio enables exceptional digital printing in roll to roll and direct to garment, on a wide range of printheads.
