Mexar extends water based pigmented textile inks range
Oct '10
Mexar Ltd, the independent inkjet development company have announced a new set of spot colours to compliment their existing pigmented inks for wide format textile printing applications. Alongside their existing CMYK, lc, lm, lk (and white) inks, Mexar now offer Blue, Red and Golden Yellow.

Dr. Andy Hancock, director of Mexar Ltd explains: After the announcement from BASF of their withdrawal from the inkjet market, we saw a gap in the market for wide format pigmented inks for textiles. We have worked hard to achieve a good colour gamut to suit textile printers. We have found that with the addition of the spot colours, users are able to create a much wider colour space with the inkset.

The inks have been designed for Epson based printheads for use on a variety of textile platforms. However explains Hancock, the inks have been designed so that the properties can be tailored to a number of different printhead technologies. We are seeing a shift in technology at the moment with more OEM's opting for industrial style printheads. With this in mind we can adjust the physical properties required to fit a number of industrial heads for various OEM's and integrators.

Mexar's pigmented inks have been developed for direct printing to various fabrics. The majority of printing carried out with Mexar's inks is on cotton and cotton rich blends. However with the addition of pre-treatments, the pigment inks will adhere to other fabric types including polyester.
