Epson & For.Tex launch Pregen PCC textile treatment
Epson, a leader in digital textile printing, and its subsidiary For.Tex, a producer of dyes and thickeners, and other products, have unveiled Pregen PCC, the innovative textile pre-treatment formula for digital pigment-printed fabrics that allows them to reach a grade 4 rating for fastness to rubbing along with unprecedented brilliance and colour intensity.

Pregen PCC is already available and is suitable for fabrics used for both clothing and interior decorating. Compared to current pre-treatment products, it guarantees improved colour performance (20 per cent higher intensity) and better rubbing fastness in both dry and wet tests (grade 4). Pigment printing is also environment-friendly; it does not require steaming or washing units, thereby reducing water and energy consumption.

Pietro Roncoroni, chairman of For.Tex said, “We are happy to see that the market is learning to appreciate pigment technology. Pregen PCC is another step forward in the simplification and efficiency of the printing process, as it considerably reduces time and costs.”

Pregen PCC, the new pre-treatment for pigment-printed textiles, is only the latest product developed by For.Tex as they work continuously to improve the chemical component of digital printing. Since the introduction in 2005 of Genesta PG pigment inks, with over 6 million square metres printed to date, Monna Lisa digital textile printer has ensured a level of quality and reliability that are unmatched in this sector. The ongoing research has now produced Pregen PCC, another target achieved in improving quality while reducing time and costs (no particular treatment is required after printing to obtain maximum results) for digital pigment-printed textiles. This is an indispensable pre-condition for a sector that promises significant growth rates in coming years, and new efforts towards a reduced environmental impact. (GK)
