The theme at this year’s FESPA Europe is evolution, and in order to continually evolve, the dynamic amongst us must stay in touch with change, technology and opportunity. Huntsman Textile Effects has throughout its history been renowned for being dynamic, innovative and consistently evolving. Its cost-cutting industrial digital printing concepts are keeping track of the times as digital printing moves to the next level towards becoming a viable alternative to screen printing.
When it comes to banners and signage, anything that requires truly radiant colors for high visibility, there is no match for TERASIL BRITE inks for direct-to-textile printing and transfer printing. TERASIL BRITE is a new generation of sublimation inks engineered for truly brighter, deeper colors on direct-to-textile prints.
The market for high resolution digital printing at high speeds is taking off with a number of machine makers producing industrial scale digital machines that match traditional flatbed printing technology. Huntsman Textile Effects has been working closely with these manufacturers, and has risen to the challenge and have developed a line up of inks for every need, fiber or fabric. NOVACRON XKS for reactive printing of cellulosics, LANASET XKS for polyamide and silk, TERASIL XKS for polyester and the latest addition is the ERIOFAST XKS single ink range for printing polyamide, silk and cellulosic fibers at high speeds using the latest digital technology – a one machine investment with the capability of printing multiple fibers with an ink set.
Huntsman Textile Effects offers the complete range of inks required to print on all textile fibers and has the capability to modify ink ranges to suit individual printheads and machines. The ability to modify inks for different printing systems coupled with expert textile processing know how achieved through the company’s long experience in traditional printing can greatly assist traditional printing companies in making a move to digital.
