DuPont Artistri sublimation inks. © DuPontDuPont Advanced Printing will highlight its innovative ink offerings for the growing digital textiles market segment at SGIA 2018 to be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center this week. As part of the show, the team will reveal its new brand campaign The Color of Things to Come, including the launch of its new website for textile inks:

Artistri digital inks combine DuPont proprietary dispersions, polymers and ink formulations. From the brightest and richest colours to custom formulations, Artistri provides colour consistency across production runs and over time. “And with a 25-year history in technology and innovation, DuPont Artistri delivers an innovative portfolio of ink products to bring your colours to life,” the company says.

At the show, DuPont will feature pigment ink offerings for both direct-to-garment (DTG) and roll-to-roll (RTR) printing, including a colour expansion in DTG printing for mid-viscosity printheads adding red, orange and green to the Artistri Brite P6000 series and RTR pigment ink offerings from low to high viscosity for compatibility with all major printheads.

DuPont will also showcase its newest DuPont Artistri Brite Direct to Garment (DTG) Pretreatment Artistri Brite P5003, a fabric pre-treatment product for application onto dark coloured cotton T-shirts, which enable efficient and consistent printing combined with bright, wash resistant colour prints, while Artistri P5010 is developed for use with white cotton and polyester shirts. P5003 and P5010 are said to offer improved wash fastness, white ink setup productivity and both tunnel dry and heat press performance.

DuPont Artistri Xite S1500, S2500 and S3500 dye sublimation inks, which have been developed to offer better jetting, image sharpness, intensity of black inks and colour saturation when compared to existing solutions will also be highlighted. Xite S1500 is a low viscosity dye sublimation ink, S2500 is a mid-viscosity dye sublimation ink and Xite S3500 is a high viscosity dye sublimation ink designed for printing on polyester textile substrates.

“We are so excited to launch our new direct to garment pre-treatments. They make colours 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 and are expanding our broad portfolio to meet customer demands. These will truly enable the Color of Things to Come,” said Shyamal Desai, Americas Marketing Manager – Digital Printing.
