Xennia Technology Ltd, the world-leading industrial inkjet solutions provider, introduces its latest product, XenInx Amethyst, a high quality reactive dye ink for textile printing applications, bringing the benefits of colour saturation and wash fastness to the digital textile printing industry.

XenInx Amethyst is a high performance ink formulated to print onto cotton, silk, viscose and linen fabrics. "Amethyst offers peerless colour vibrancy and intensity," comments Dr. Alfons Wegdam, Xennia's Head of Textiles, "with a wide range of colours available to give a full colour gamut for high quality applications. It has outstanding durability, with excellent wash fastness, perspiration resistance and dry and wet crock fastness. Amethyst has now been introduced into customer systems printing textiles in production volumes. It is a highly significant addition to our portfolio of industry-leading inks."

Dr Wegdam explains further: "XenInx Amethyst enables digital inkjet printing of textiles, with the benefits of reduced production costs from efficient use of materials, excellent print quality and fast response to customer demands, with economies at all print run lengths. Amethyst offers an unparalleled combination of colour and jetting performance with proven printing reliability in industrial environments."

XenInx Amethyst is available in cyan, magenta, yellow, black (CMYK), orange, red and blue. It is designed for textile printing applications including apparel fabrics, soft home furnishings and banners. Amethyst is an environmentally sustainable ink, formulated for use with Xennia printing systems, XenJet inkjet modules and other industrial inkjet systems using Kyocera and other aqueous compatible piezo printheads. Antonino Tricomi, Reggiani's Business Development Director, comments: "XenInx Amethyst has been extensively tested in the Reggiani ReNOIR digital textile printing system and shows excellent printing performance."

Xennia has a long history of developing and supplying inks to OEMs and end users as part of its solutions business. Its XenInx range of performance ink products makes this expertise available to the industry at large.
