GJS launches M-TT water-based modified pigment inks
May '11
GJS Machinery, one of Australia's leading distributors of products for the screen printing, heat transfer and textile markets today announced an exclusive agreement to distribute Sawgrass M-TT water-based modified pigment inks to the Australian market.

“We're very proud to be launching M-TT to the Australian market today” said Greg Stone, Director, GJS Machinery. “M-TT represents a substantial leap forward in textile ink technology and is set to revolutionise the soft-sign, upholstery, interior design and textile industry due to its incredible versatility and durability.”

Part of what places M-TT inks in a completely new category of ink is its unique ability to print on a wide variety of natural and synthetic fabrics, opening up new markets for digital textile printers. This amazing versatility eliminates the need to change out inks or invest in multiple printers and expensive post-processing equipment.

How it Works:
M-TT inks are a family of water-based modified pigment inks that make up a completely new and totally revolutionary new category of digital textile inks. The binder-free ink is specially formulated with reactive elements that enable it to bind to almost any fabric.

Made with very high quality modified pigments, M-TT inks have a much higher pigment load than conventional pigment inks. This formulation provides a matt-finish colour that approaches that of reactive dyes, and up to 20% greater yield than other inks. Unlike other inks that may need up to 12 colours, M-Textile inks deliver this amazing colour with a limited ink pallet.

Independently Tested:
An independent laboratory has tested M-Textile ink using American Association of Textile Chemists and Colourists (AATCC) testing methods. Tests include UV fastness, wash fastness, crock fastness (transfer of colour through rubbing) and tolerance to perspiration. These tests show that M-TT ink delivers three-year outdoor durability, outstanding washability and crock fastness.

Like all other digital textile inks, M-TT inks print on a matched component pre-coated fabric. M-TTT coating acts as a catalyst that facilitates binding to the fabric and gives the finished product a soft hand.

Popular pre-coated fabrics will be available directly through GJS Machinery.
