“Wider variety, higher durability and a simpler post-treatment process is increasingly making pigment inks the preferred choice of digital textile printers. Pigment inks also exhibit the highest degree of durability in colour and light fastness,” Colorjet said in a press release.
The pigment ink printing process does not need complex steaming and washing steps. Since the pigment ink is printed only on the top layer of the fabric without any chemical bonding, the textile fabric has to be only condensed at 150-170°C for a few minutes to fix the pigments. Consequently, the pigment printing process requires significantly less water due to the omitted washing step.
Pigment inks are suitable for a wide range of fabrics including mixed and blended fabrics and for the first time, Colorjet is offering a true solution, the Fabjet Grand, for industrial usage in digital textile printing.
The Fabjet Grand is a 3.2-metre direct to fabric printer and is an ideal direct-to-fabric printing solution for creating large customised patterns for the home furnishings business. Heavy duty design with rigid structure makes the machine suitable for rigorous shop floor operating conditions.
In adherence to China’s “12th Five-Year Technical Progress Outline”, Colorjet meets the mandatory standards in energy saving and effluent reduction, by enabling large-scale implementation of clean production. It also offers low-carbon, green and cyclic economy system, thereby accomplishing energy-saving and effluent-reducing tasks as specified by the Government of China. (RKS)
