DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) highlighted its innovative Artistri digital inks for textile printing during the ISS show in Long Beach, California. It showcased the recently launched brand campaign ‘The Color of Things to Come,’ including the new website for textile inks: http://artistritextile.dupont.com.
Artistri digital inks combine DuPont proprietary dispersions, polymers and ink formulations resulting in highly innovative digital inks for inkjet printing. From the brightest and richest colors to custom formulations, Artistri provides color consistency across production runs and over time. With a 25-year history in technology and innovation, DuPont Artistri delivers a comprehensive portfolio of ink products to bring your colors to life.
At the show, DuPont showed its Artistri Brite Direct to Garment (DTG) ink and pretreatment portfolio. This includes the recently launched Artistri Brite P5003 pretreatment for application onto dark colored cotton tShirts that enable efficient and consistent printing combined with bright, wash resistant color prints. Artistri Brite P5010 is developed for use with white cotton and polyester shirts and both offer improved wash fastness, white ink setup productivity and excellent tunnel dry and heat press performance.
Feature at the stand were pigment ink offerings for both DTG and roll-to-roll (RTR) printing, including a color expansion to the Artistri Brite P6000 series for mid-viscosity printheads adding red, orange and green. DuPont Artistri Xite RTR pigment ink offerings range from low to high viscosity for compatibility with all major printheads. Visitors were able to view print samples showcasing different ink applications on various substrates.
“We are excited about offering such a broad portfolio of pigment inks and pretreatments to our customers, allowing them to expand solutions to the more environmentally friendly digital printing for the textile market. Our recent Artistri Brite P6000 DTG ink set gamut expansion and a sneak peek at our newest dark polyester DTG offering are just two examples of our ongoing innovations to support this important and fast-growing market,” said Eric Beyeler, Global Marketing Manager – Digital Printing.
