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 May 31st to June 3rd, 2022.
Artistri® P5500 ink is specially designed for DTG (direct to garment) decorators and fulfillment 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 deliver improved wash fastness with both press or oven curing and with faster curing times. Artistri® P5590 white ink offers the opacity and stretch that 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 and 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.
Key features that benefit DTG printers:
- Brilliant colors: gamut volume > 175,000
- White coverage: L*>92
- Longer shelf life through improved redispersibility
- Dark shirt wash #fastness (after 5 washes at 45C) for press & oven cure > 4 (0-5 scale
