DuPont will highlight the new pigment ink series in its digital inks portfolio, DuPont Artistri Brite P5500, at the Fespa Global Print Expo in Berlin, Germany, from 31 May – 3 June 2022.

Artistri P5500 ink is specially designed for DTG (direct to garment) decorators and fulfilment houses who want to move to digital printing but need a faster, more reliable process that provides high quality and repeatability. The new Artistri P5500 set of ink colors delivers improved wash fastness with both press or oven curing and faster curing times. Artistri P5590 white ink offers opacity and stretches customers’ value for longer shelf life.

The high gamut volume aqueous-based ink set is designed to work in printers with low-viscosity piezo-electric printheads. It is suitable for all direct to garment applications, including DTF (direct to film) printing.

With the DuPont Artistri P5500 ink set, printers will be able to tailor their ink usage to the application without compromising color, fastness and repeatability. “We are delighted to deliver a full solution that helps enable leading printing performance in all the areas that contribute to our customers’ success, brilliant and durable colors with less ink plus reduced curing times for oven and press while still delivering printing consistency and dependability to help lower operations and maintenance costs,” said Bernd Daiber, Global Sales leader – Commercial Inks, DuPont Artistri Digital Inks.

Brand owner and printer/convertor customers are focused on improving the sustainability of their packaging solutions while maintaining a high level of print quality and productivity. With 30+ years of innovation in inkjet inks, DuPont Artistri digital printing inks deliver high performance for home, office, textile, commercial and packaging applications, including printing on coated and uncoated paper corrugated and folding cartons. With over 45 years of experience in packaging through Cyrel solutions. DuPont is committed to developing digital ink solutions to help sustainable packaging growth, including a full range of food compliant ink products and leveraging global customer partnerships to develop ink solutions for label and flexible packaging printing.

“Artistri aqueous pigment inks are a key asset for digital printing customers or manufacturing customers looking for short runs, customization and a shortened supply chain while addressing the demand for sustainability,” Bernd concludes.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
