Stand highlights will include the global launch of SunTex, Sun Chemical’s new range of inkjet inks for textile and soft signage applications. Sun Chemical will also be showcasing its Streamline range of printer-compatible alternative solvent-based inks.
Central to the SunJet offering will be the presentation of Aquacure, its next generation functional aqueous inkjet ink. This ink chemistry delivers performance and production benefits, and provides an all-new development platform upon which new inks can be introduced to meet the future needs of the expanding wide format graphics sector.
Sun Chemical will present the first global showing of SunTex, the new range of inkjet inks developed specifically for digital textile applications. Two ink ranges will be featured. The first is a dye sublimation ink for transfer print applications which combines bright strong colors, dense black and a tough highly resistant ink film. The second is a direct print dispersed dye ink for flag and banner applications, which provides excellent “show-through” for double-sided output such as flag printing, where the image is viewed from either side and vibrant, strong color and dense black reproduction, which is crucial for high visual impact soft signage. Both inks should be printed onto polyester and polyester-rich textiles and materials.
At FESPA Digital 2016, Sun Chemical will highlight its Streamline range of solvent-based alternative inkjet inks, designed for wide and super wide format printers including Epson, Vutek, Roland, Mutoh and Mimaki. Latest additions on show at FESPA Digital 2016 will include the Streamline ESL2 low odor eco-solvent ink, which combines high print quality output with ultra-low odor properties, developed for Roland Pro 4 printers using Roland Ecosol Max 2 inks. These inks are particularly suited to enclosed print shop environments where low odor is essential.
Demonstrating its ongoing commitment to the super wide format solvent print market, Sun Chemical will feature Streamline TBJ, designed for the HP TurboJet. Streamline TBJ offers significantly reduced energy consumption through improved drying performance, improved overall ink consumption and reduced overspray.
The stand will also feature the Streamline SGX eco solvent, low odor inks series, developed to work with the high performance thin film piezo printheads for the Epson SureColor 70600 printer.
SunJet will highlight the capabilities of its joint development projects with OEM partners, system integrators and printhead manufacturers in a broad range of market sectors, including graphics, décor, textile, industrial and packaging.
Visitors will be able to learn more about the benefits of Aquacure, SunJet’s all-new approach to ink development based on aqueous chemistry combining the best of water-based and UV curing technology. Aquacure is a functional aqueous ink, offering optimum high quality output, outstanding adhesion to a wide range of media, flexibility, an extensive color gamut as well as low odor properties and environmental benefits.
