Jay Chemical launches digital textile printing inks
Jan '12
Jay Chemical Industries Ltd (JCIL), one of the largest reactive dyes producers in the world and a market leader in the Indian market, has launched digital textile printing inks in the Indian market.

The digital textile printing ink – 'Antelos' was launched at the recently concluded Asia Interdye Exhibition in Ahmedabad. This was followed by seminars in Ahmedabad and Surat, which were well-attended by eminent experts from the industry.

Jay Chemical, which has a strong international presence and an annual sales turnover of US $75 million sells its products under the names of Jakofix and Jakazol.

At the beginning of 2010, Jay Chemical set up a wholly owned subsidiary in Germany by the name of Solunaris GmbH, to manufacture and market digital textile printing inks.

Today, Solunaris GmbH successfully produces and markets 'Antelos R' reactive inks for digital printing on cotton, viscose, linen and silk and 'Antelos A' acid inks for digital printing on silk, polyamide and wool.

Solunaris is the only worldwide backward integrated digital ink manufacturer, which has full and direct access to the production of dyestuffs prior to the refining process.

Solunaris has built close co-operation with leading manufacturers of digital printing machines, print heads and software houses and offers full technical support to their customers worldwide including the markets in its home ground within the EU.

Ecological parameters have become a special focus in the textile value creation chain. The responsible use of natural resources and 'green' products and eco-friendly production processes have gained increasingly in importance in the light of environmental issues.

Solunaris addresses ecological concerns and meets the highest environmental requirements and textile guidelines such as the 'Oeko-Tex Standard 100' with their water-based Antelos inks. All products fulfill GOTS requirements.
