Bordeaux Digital Printink launched its Latex based inks at the FESPA 2013 conference, June 25-29, in London, UK, at the Excel London Exhibition Center, stands D12S/E10S. These new water-based inks extend Bordeaux’s comprehensive range of inks and solutions further and raise the bar for environmentally friendly printing.
Bordeaux will highlight the new EDEN TX Latex-based ink for textiles, a unique water-based ink for digital printing on a very wide variety of natural, synthetic and blended fabrics without pre-treatment, multiple printing devices or several types of ink. This odorless ink offers extremely rich and high density colors, excellent color vibrancy and soft feeling fabrics, making it an excellent choice for the demanding environments of garment and apparel, decorative and industrial textile printing applications. Bordeaux’s EDEN TX currently supports Epson DX-4/DX-5/DX-6/DX-7 printheads, as well as industrial printheads such as Ricoh Gen4. Available colors are C, M, Y, K, Lc, and Lm.
Latex printing will be visible on three printers in the Bordeaux stand D12S/E10S and in partner stand E30N/E35N at FESPA 2013, two dedicated for textile printing on cotton and polyester and another demonstration on a Latex converted solvent Mutoh printer printing with Bordeaux’s EDEN LX Latex-based ink. Designed for simple and seamless conversion of solvent based printers equipped with Epson DX printheads, EDEN LX demonstrates superb performance comparable to eco-solvent inks, on a wide array of substrates including most solvent and water designated substrates.
“At this year’s FESPA we are demonstrating the versatility and exceptional quality and cost effectiveness of our environmentally friendly solutions. Our revolutionary Latex-based ink series is odor free, offers excellent durability, superior adhesion, high light fastness and outstanding elongation properties, making it an excellent alternative to solvent ink for indoor and outdoor applications,” said Moshe Zach, CEO and founder of Bordeaux Digital Printink. “All this, while providing 30% to 50% lower ink consumption compared to OEM Eco solvent ink.”
“Bordeaux’s new Latex-based ink for textiles builds on our track record of innovative industry first solutions and enables more efficient digital textile printing,” added Mr. Zach. “Best of all, EDEN TX ink has the ability to precisely match colors even on garment fabrics made up of a blend of two or more fiber types and produce garments with a soft feel, excellent wash fastness and light fastness. It is a true breakthrough in the digital textile printing field, ideal for fast and hassle free short run garment and apparel, decorative or industrial textile printing applications.”
Bordeaux’s water-based ink demonstrations include the first showing of its EDEN SD Direct Sublimation ink. This ink produces washable and color-fast images on Polyester fabrics which can be used for flags and banners, sports apparel, indoor furnishings, fashion items, tents and more.
Bordeaux will be showcasing its recently announced FUZE ECO SC, Eco solvent ink for Epson Surecolor S series printers. Mix & Match with Epson UltraChrome GS2, this eco-friendly ink is available in 1L bags for Smart bulk ink delivery systems, provided by InkOnDemand.com, a Bordeaux partner company.
Environmentally friendly printing was visible in the UV LED area of the stand, where Bordeaux will demonstrate its UV LED flexible ink printing on rigid substrates. Bordeaux’s PLASMA UV and UV LED ink series cover a very wide range of rigid, flexible and super flexible solutions for all types of indoor and outdoor applications.
