To commemorate 35 years of delivering innovation and being a global leader in digital inkjet inks with its Artistri ink products, DuPont has announced the launch of its PN 1000 ink series at drupa 2024. The new product series is a set of low viscosity water-based pigment inkjet inks for commercial printing, formulated with proprietary DuPont technology and compatible with industry standard drying technologies.

This new ink set is suitable for book, direct mail, and transactional printing applications and prints a rich black alongside delivering a large color gamut with minimal to no drying, allowing printers to achieve higher speeds to be more productive. The key benefits also include – high optical density on various paper substrates; high image quality; high durability; and reliable jetting sustainability.

“We believe that drupa 2024, the most important printing show in the world, is the perfect place for presenting the newest ink series, said Tucker Norton, global business director, DuPont Printing & Packaging.” With the growth in digital printing, we will continue to innovate, bringing more sustainable solutions that will elevate commercial and textile printing to a higher level.”

On the packaging front, DuPont will showcase its water-based inks for corrugated, folding carton and flexible packaging printing, responding to the emerging demand from conscious converters looking for safer ink alternatives. Developed for the OEMs project needs, these products are ideal for indirect food contact, and are compliant with Swiss Ordinance and EuPIA (European Printing Ink Association). The Artistri® water-based pigment inks for packaging printing are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards and in ISO 9002-2015 certified facilities.

Sustainability is a key element in DuPont’s portfolio innovation. The company aims to not only offer more environmentally friendly products that will allow printers to choose processes with a lower carbon footprint, but also develop products that are safe and sustainable by design. 

DuPont’s recent 2024 Sustainability Report, published last month, highlights the success case of DuPont scientists completing a three-year effort to replace 2-pyrrolidone solvent in inks with safer, non-regulated alternatives while maintaining equivalent performance and shelf life. “We are proud to see that this work supports the overarching trends of printers moving to digital printing for consumer products and demonstrates DuPont’s commitment to being ahead of the curve with regard to substances of concern across our portfolio,”said Gabriela Kim, global brand and marketing manager, DuPont Artistri Digital Inks.

DuPont will also exhibit other products from the Artistri portfolio at drupa 2024, such as P1600, the premium pigment inkjet inks for direct-to-film (DTF) textile printing. 

“Within textile printing, there’s a boom with the DTF technology over the last few years due to its versatility and DTF is here to stay, added Kim.” The P1600 ink series were specially designed for this technology, delivering bright images while giving the consistency and reliability for printers to spend less time with maintenance.”

DuPont is a leading manufacturer and innovator of digital inkjet printing inks with its Artistri inks for commercial, packaging, textile, office, and home printing applications. 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
