BASF Offers New Ink Jet Inks for Textiles


At the Heimtextil trade fair, BASF Aktien-gesellschaft will present new concepts and products for digital textile printing, including Helizarin EVO P 100 pigmented inks.
Helizarin EVO P 100 is the rapidest pigment ink jet ink yet, according to the company. It is a low-viscosity ink that prints textiles brilliantly in only one operation. The innovative feature of the new ink is a special multifunctional agent (MFA) that replaces the traditional binder.
One benefit of MFA is its speed. Helizarin EVO P 100 saves the printer time and cost-intensive post-printing treatment steps. With MFA, it is simply a matter of printing and fixing and the print is finished. The ink can be applied to virtually all fabrics, produces prints with high contour definition and has outstanding running properties, according to the company.
