Efi Reggiani has unveiled its Efi Reggiani ecoTERRA pigment solution at the Fespa Global Print Expo. The new pigment solution making its debut there is an advanced integrated solution for streamlined, greener textile printing.

“We are truly thrilled to provide our Fespa visitors a preview of an innovative pigment printing solution that delivers authentic textile printing results while cutting water and energy consumption,” said Efi Reggiani senior vice president and general manager Adele Genoni. “This is another confirmation of our commitment to green innovation. The Efi Reggiani ecoTERRA solution contributes to making the textile industry more sustainable, reducing the environmental footprint to deliver an eco-friendlier direct-to-fabric printing experience.”

A new level of sustainable direct-to-fabric printing

The EFI Reggiani ecoTERRA is an all-in-one solution for water-based pigment printing that requires no ancillary equipment for pre- and post-treatment. Its patent-pending technology helps dramatically cut energy and water consumption in the overall process for a more sustainable direct-to-fabric printing experience.

According to the company, users will benefit from ecoTERRA’s ability to deliver excellent wet and dry fastness, remarkable sharpness in detail, and extraordinarily high durability while also yielding longer printhead life with reduced maintenance costs.

The new ecoTERRA ink range features seven colors – cyan, magenta, yellow, black, blue, red, and green – for an expanded color gamut. An enhanced polymerization and finishing unit for the Efi Reggiani ecoTERRA also gives the fabric a softer hand feel, delivering performance that is in line with the most stringent textile industry requirements.

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.
