EFI Reggiani

DuPont Digital Printing and EFI Reggiani on Tuesday announced the release of their new DuPont Artistri PK2600 digital pigment ink for EFI Reggiani ReNoir digital textile printers.

DuPont created the ink, designed for cotton textile roll-to-roll printing, which the company’s textile market segment leader, Ted Zhi, said will help improve the future of pigment inks.

“When two market leaders come together to collaborate on a high-growth area of technology as important as pigment inks for roll-to-roll printing, it’s a powerful combination,” he said. “We expect the new DuPont Artistri PK2600 inks and the innovative printing process developed by EFI Reggiani will considerably enhance the role of pigment inks for high-speed digital printing applications in the future.”

The new Artistri PK2600 is made with the same dyes in conventional textile printing and every batch is tested in a DuPont ISO 9001 certified facility to ensure exceptional color. Since the ink does not require steaming or washing production steps, the result is a faster turnaround and better environmental attributes.

Artistri PK2600 ink is not only usable for textile roll-to-roll printing, but other fabrics including polyester and non-woven materials.

Ambrogio Caccia Dominioni, managing director at EFI Reggiani, said, “We are proud of the year-long effort with DuPont on this development and we are very pleased with the results that will help customers be more productive, efficient and environmentally friendly.”
