VelvetJet, a subsidiary of Bordeaux Digital has developed the industry's first pigment ink that prints on all fabrics with one simple process.

“VelvetJet ink is a true game changer for the digital textile industry as any textile application is made possible with one Velvet Jet pigment ink and one simple printing line,” Bordeaux said in a press release.

According to Bordeaux, the new water based pigment ink encompasses high quality characteristics including uniform coverage for quality prints on any type of fabric while preserving the natural feel of fabrics.

“In addition, the ink requires only a single pretreatment to all different fabrics, thus significantly simplifying the printing process,” it added.

“While the fact there is no post treatment to the ink shortens the entire process and significantly reduces electricity and water consumption,” Bordeaux explained.

Ink attributes such as rub and wash resistance are high even without any pretreatment to the fabric.

“When using VelvetJet optimiser, the test results are among the highest in the market with 5/5 wash and rub resistance and 7/8 colour fastness,” the company claimed.

“Velvet Jet's pigment ink simplifies the complexity of the current digital textile printing,” Guy Evron, marketing director at VelvetJet said.

“Textile manufacturers now have the ability to provide new, simpler solutions, while reducing overall printing costs and eliminating the multiple production lines needed for printing different fabrics,” Evron too added.

VelvetJet is the textile inks division of Bordeaux Digital Printink, while Bordeaux too is a developer and manufacturer of premium inks and comprehensive solutions for all wide format inkjet technologies, printers and the graphic arts industry.

The company products are recognised worldwide as highly reliable and cost-effective inkjet inks and coatings and for all latest printhead technologies including Epson, Xaar, Konica Minolta, Toshiba and many more. (AR)
