At FESPA Cologne in Hall 8 stand E-8, Kornit Digital launched NeoPigment Pure, a new series of digital inks that are designed for use with all of its direct-to-garment systems.

It is designed as an evolution of the existing NeoPigment process and brings users, benefits including increased vivacity, an improved hand feel and a more opaque and smooth reproduction of white.

Kornit Digital’s NeoPigment Pure ink comprises CMYK plus red, green and white and is formulated to supersede the company’s existing ink families by providing colour standards that are closer to ideal lab values.

Improved overall smoothness resulting in an increased gamut of more than 15 per cent is accompanied by a deeper black while the white ink has greater brightness and opacity with greater coverage.

According to a Kornit press release, with a refined hand feel, the NeoPigment Pure ink offers reduced post-print odour, and is suitable for use on virtually all fabric types.

“It also has added benefit of offering 100 per cent sustainability and biodegradability and the ink is fully compliant with Oeko-Tex 100 and is GOTS pre-approved,” it informed.

In addition, the new NeoPigment Pure ink has been designed to increase the performance of the Kornit Digital direct-to-garment systems’ print-heads with faster start-up and better reliability.

The new ink also offers better wash-fastness, a longer shelf life and the likelihood of waste is vastly reduced.

“Once commercially available, the new inks will be able to be used with all of Kornit’s direct-to-garment printing systems in the field, without any hardware changes,” it said.

“Kornit Digital’s policy is to continue developments in order to bring customers the best pigmented ink technologies to combine with their Kornit DTG’s,” Guy Zimmerman, Kornit’s EVP (Marketing) said.

“Our new inks respond to customer demand for refined characteristics and we now have the widest colour gamut in the industry, a velvety touch and the ultimate in white ink performance,” he too added.

Kornit Digital’s NeoPigment Pure ink made its début at FESPA where it is being demonstrated on the company’s Avalanche Hexa.

Kornit Digital develops, manufactures and markets industrial and commercial printing solutions for the garment, apparel and textile industries.

Leading the digital textile printing market with its exclusive eco-friendly NeoPigment process, it caters directly to the needs of the entire textile printing value chain.

Kornit Digital is also revolutionising the roll fabric industry with its single step solution that enables printing with a single ink set onto multiple types of fabric and with no additional finishing process.

Founded in 2003, Kornit Digital is a global company with offices in the USA, Asia Pacific and Europe and serves customers in more than 100 countries worldwide. (AR)
