BASF Performance Chemicals is now offering digital textile printing information at the company web page, www.basf.com/textile. The link is designed to offer comprehensive textile know-how to customers and printers, including how to decide which ink jet ink is suitable for which textile, how do print heads actually work, what options are there for digital printing on textiles and how to get rich color shades. Users will find information on Bafixan and Helizarin inks made by BASF in the “Products” section.
Also listed are some of the advantages of digital textile printing as well as possible future trends.
