Epson, pioneer of digital textile printing technology, and its subsidiary For.Tex, a leader in the production of dyes, thickeners and textile pre/post-treatment products, have made the Genesta fluorescent flavin and Genesta fluorescent pink colours. Epson is dedicated to connecting people and information with efficient, compact, and precision technologies.

These two additions, which are available in quantities of three and ten litres, increase to thirteen the total number of colours available in the Genesta acid inks range. Particularly sought after in the swimwear and sports clothing sector, the fluorescent hues are specifically produced for printing on polyamide fabrics, Epson said in a media statement.

“The availability of these new inks allows printers to meet their customers’ needs, who will be able to expand their offering for other market sectors. In addition to their traditional fields of application, the women clothing industry also shows an interest in these fluorescent effects. Digital textile printing is making huge progress and the availability of these new inks brings an essential addition to the fields of application,” Pietro Roncoroni, chairman of For.Tex said.

Developed by For.Tex in cooperation with Epson, the Genesta inks meet the highest quality standards in terms of production reliability and colour fastness of prints on all fibres. The range, which includes acid, reactive, disperse, pigment, and sublimation inks, covers a wide and perfectly balanced colour space. Entirely degassed to ensure the highest printing performance, they allow reducing the cleaning cycles of the heads, thus significantly reducing consumption. The inks are contained in 1, 3, and 10 litre, completely exhaustible cartridges made of thermally-welded multi-layer aluminium; they ensure total reliability, reduce waste and are produced to the highest standards: each cartridge has a unique chip, provided to prevent the accidental loading of the wrong ink.
