M-Textile ink meets the prevailing AATCC standards

Sawgrass Technologies Inc, an industry leading developer of innovative printing technologies, announced AATCC testing and three-year outdoor durability of M-Textile ink, a water-based modified-pigment ink that prints on natural and man-made textiles with no wet post-processing.

M-Textile inks are a completely new and totally revolutionary new category of digital textile inks. The exclusive binder-free formula eliminates the head-clogging, maintenance and downtime associated with traditional water-based pigment inks. The one-ink-prints-all approach enables M-Textile to replace acid, reactive and disperse dyes, which call for steaming, washing, drying and, at times, waste-water treatment. M-Textile inks print on Cotton, Polyester, Cotton-Polyester Blends, Silk, Nylon, Wool and other natural fibers.

M-Textile ink contains no hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) or toxic air pollutants (TAPs). Requiring only 3 minutes of inline heat fixation, this extremely versatile ink saves time, energy and capital, making it an integral part of a sustainable, on-demand digital textile printing platform.

Sawgrass M-Textile ink has recently undergone AATCC testing at the University of Philadelphia. Tests included color fastness to Light (UV), Laundering, Wet and Dry Crocking and Perspiration. Based on the test results, Sawgrass asserts that M-TT meets the prevailing AATCC color fastness standards for a wide variety of digital textile printing applications.

M-Textile inks are compatible with the industry's most popular digital textile printers including Mimaki, Roland, Mutoh, Splash of Color, d.gen, ATP and DuPont Artistri.

Sawgrass Technologies Inc is a developer of digital printing technology solutions that allow its customers to custom decorate a vast array of products - large and small - including plastics, metals, films, ceramics, and textiles. During its 20-year history, the company has become best known for its dye sublimation ink jet technology. Sawgrass provides whole product solutions designed to support any size business - from desktop systems to wide-format commercial and industrial systems for production environments.
