DuPont will showcase its latest ink technologies for direct to garment, direct to film, roll to roll, commercial and package printing at next week’s Printing United Expo in Las Vegas (October 19-21).
For textile printing, DuPont will highlight Artistri Brite P5500, the newest addition to its pigment inks for DTG (direct to garment) and DTF (direct to film) applications. The booth will also feature an extensive RTR (roll to roll) range including Artistri Xite P2700 and P3600 pigment inks.
"The new Artistri P5500 ink set delivers improved wash fastness with both press or oven curing and with faster curing times," said a press release. "Artistri P5590 white ink offers the opacity and stretch that customers value along with longer shelf life.
“This high gamut volume aqueous-based inks package is designed to work in printers with low-viscosity piezo-electric printheads and is suitable for all DTG applications, including DTF printing. With the Artistri P5500, printers will be able to tailor their ink usage to the application without compromising on colour, fastness and repeatability.
“For RTR printers, Artistri Xite P2700 pigment inks offer best-in-class colour gamut with deep, rich blacks, outstanding colour saturation and superior durability, meeting the needs of quality conscious textile printers in apparel and home furnishings.”
