Sun Chemical announces the range of Xennia Peral inks for both mid-viscosity and high-viscosity printheads. The inks have been developed following a careful assessment of the market and specific customer needs, particularly the requirement for high fastness, multi-substrate compatibility, consistent colour and outstanding print performance. As well as addressing core market needs in terms of performance, the range also underlines Sun Chemical’s commitment to sustainability in the textiles industry – offering textile printers a way to significantly reduce water use and chemical waste.
Based on proprietary pigments and resins, the inks will support the key application areas of fashion and home textiles – two sectors which are rapidly embracing digital pigment printing, both for the flexibility it offers, and for the huge sustainability benefits it brings. Additionally, Xennia Pearl inks offer the key benefit of increased fastness performance on polyester and cotton-polyester blends, opening up digital pigment printing to high demand applications typically using the higher water and energy consuming direct disperse technology.
