DyStar Group has introduced Jettex 4.0, its highest-ever performing range of digital textile printing inks.
The colorant supplier presented this latest innovation in inkjet technology in cooperation with industrial printing giant Zimmer Austria at the most recent edition of ITMA Milan.
DyStar described the new range of reactive, acid, disperse and sublimation inks as “ultra-intense” and said it offers both longer lifetime and user-friendly open time for all state-of-the-art and newly launched print heads, as well as “excellent robustness” in processing.
“They also meet the most stringent ecological and fastness requirements,” the company claimed.
Furthermore, DyStar said its Jettex Black inks are setting the bar when it comes to deepest blacks.
Also notable is the company’s new and highly-pigmented range of Jettex Vat inks, an industry first which it claimed can fulfill the fastness requirements to light, multiple washing and rubbing on inks in the home textile segment.
Developed with Zimmer Austria’s Colaris in mind (an inkjet printer for industrial print applications ranging from fashion and home textiles to polyester fleece products and carpet), the CMYK color set is already available and fixation can be done using a one-phase or two-phase system.
DyStar plans to launch more shades in 2016 to offer a complete range to industries with high-performance requirements, such as home textiles, workwear and the military.
