Kornit Digital, a market leader in digital textile printing innovation, has unveiled the new Kornit NeoPoly Technology, which is the industry’s first digital, industrial process for high-quality printing on polyester.

Polyester is the second largest category in the overall T-shirt market, it is key in the sport segment, and is growing in the athleisure and functional apparel segments. Currently polyester is printed predominantly by analogue solutions, which creates major technological, cost and sustainability challenges. 

The new Kornit NeoPoly Technology has been developed to address these challenges with a new process and ink set implemented in the Kornit NeoPigment process. Kornit’s new process handles polyester applications without compromising on design, run size, substrate or labour.

Unique process

The technological innovation is achieved by an innovative ink set and a physical and chemical process specifically developed for low temperature curing, and polyester enhancing functionalities developed to maintain fabric characteristics and provide superior fastness. This unique process prevents dye migration on polyester. The inks are Oeko-Tex and Eco-Passport certified and do not contain PVCs or other toxic ingredients.

The first system equipped with the Kornit NeoPoly Technology is the new Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro, a member of Kornit’s industrial platform. The single-step Poly Pro is the perfect system for the industry, enabling easy and cost effective short-runs and on-demand printing on polyester garments.

New opportunities

One of Kornit’s first customers to embrace the NeoPoly Technology is DTG2Go, a Delta Apparel company and leader in the direct-to-garment printing and fulfilment marketplace.  “With our business serving the discerning activewear and performance apparel markets, we see increasing demand for personalised, decorated polyester garments,” commented Deborah H. Merrill, Delta Apparel’s CFO and President, Delta Group.

“We are excited about the new opportunities the Avalanche Poly Pro creates for our business. Through DTG2Go, we can now deliver individualized and small-run prints on a variety of polyester fabric types at the quality levels our customers demand.”

Reinventing apparel industry

The new Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro was unveiled at Kornit’s Discover events from 3-4 April, in the New York Metropolitan area. It will also be presented from 11-12 April in Duesseldorf and from 15-17 April in Hong Kong. The system will also be publicly shown and demonstrated at Fespa Munich, CITPE China and ITMA Barcelona.

“Kornit is on a mission to reinvent the garment and textile printing industry with game changing technologies for growing market segments,” said Omer Kulka, Kornit’s VP of Marketing and Product Strategy. “We continually work to break technology boundaries, so that our customers can innovate and open new markets and new business opportunities, while being more operationally efficient. The new NeoPoly Technology is further proof of this innovation and reinvention mission.”
