Kiian Digital will be launching Digistar Evo, a brand-new dye-sublimation ink developed for Epson printheads at FESPA China 2015 which runs from October 21-23, 2015 at booth N-1166.

According to a Kiian press release, Digistar Evo offers remarkable printability for printers equipped with 2 DX7 print heads, providing customers with benefits like high definition print, a wide colour gamut and fast drying.

Alex Yao, sales and marketing manager at Kiian Digital China said, “Digistar Evo has been designed specifically for the Chinese textile market, demonstrating once again, Kiian's great attention to local market needs.”

“FESPA China also provides the opportunity to present the ink portfolio recently launched for Ricoh printheads, including Gen-5,” it added.

“Tailored for specific textile market segments they include, Digistar Tex-R, Digistar Air, Digistar WR-500 and Digistar Tune, which joins the Digistar Gen-R range launched last year,” the company informed.

Digistar Tex-R, a digital pigment ink has been developed for textile printing and is ideal for direct printing onto natural and synthetic fabrics and has excellent light fastness and good resistance to washing.

The Digistar Air is a transfer dye-sub ink ideal for light and low coated papers and reproduction of a wide colour space and is excellent for long runs and reduced operating costs.

Digistar WR-500 is suitable for sublimation transfer printing with Ricoh GEN-5 heads onto light and or low coated papers. It is also ideal for transfer printing onto polyester fabrics and blended fabrics with minimum 80 per cent polyester.

Digistar Tune is a dye sub ink for direct printing, ideal for direct printing onto synthetic fibres like polyester and also has excellent general fastness; light, outdoor exposure and rubbing if post-treated.

“We are living in a dynamic time where the demand for high-speed production is growing and we have great expectations for our new inks developed for Ricoh print heads,” said Alessandra Borghi, Kiian Digital sales director. (AR)
