SHANGHAI, April 20, 2018 – DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) showcased its innovative digital ink portfolio and highlighted its pigment solution for the growing digital textile market during the 2018 Shanghai International Digital Printing Industry Fair (TPF).
“Backed by our superior digital ink chemistry, DuPont™ Artistri® pigment inks have long been considered among the best-in-class, achieving the optimal balance of print quality, productivity and reliability,” said Eric Beyeler, global marketing manager for Artistri® Digital Inks, DuPont Advanced Printing. “We are very excited to feature them at TPF.”
At the show, DuPont featured its pigment ink offerings for both direct-to-garment (DTG) and roll-to-roll (RTR) printing. Artistri® Brite inks deliver brilliant colors, offer the brightest white ink, and can achieve the highest print consistency and efficiency. Artistri® Brite inks are specially designed for DTG decorators and fulfillment houses who want to move to digital printing but need a faster, more reliable process that provides high quality and repeatability.
Artistri® Xite Pigment inks deliver high saturation colors, excellent light fastness and the ability to print on a wide range of substrates. Artistri® Xite Pigment inks are designed to work in printers with high, medium or low-viscosity piezo-electric printheads and are specially developed for RTR digital printing on cotton or cotton-rich blends.
During the show, DuPont also introduced its DTG shirt pre-treatments. The new pre-treatments, in addition to the pigment solution, deliver superior color gamut, excellent stretchability and wash fastness, consistent with what customers expect from DuPont: printing efficiency and productivity.
“DuPont has more than 25 years of innovation and expertise in the digital inkjet market,” said Lucy Chen, Asia Pacific business director for DuPont Advanced Printing, “Our pigment solution is very well-suited for the Asia market, and it reinforces our commitment to the growing demands of this region. We will continue to combine our global knowledge with even deeper insights into local and industry needs, and help our customers to grow and to outperform the competition.”
