Making its European debut is the company’s recently launched J-Cube PNF series. Comprising four high-density colors - Cyan Extra, Magenta Extra, Yellow Extra and Black Extra - the new inks offer high-quality coverage and are specifically engineered for Panasonic printheads.
“Digital printing is becoming increasingly important in the textile industry where color, durability and rapid turnaround times are essential,” says Luca Guggiari, J-Teck3’s brand R&D manager. “Heimtextil is a great platform to introduce our next generation ink to the textile market. Our high-performance portfolio offers textile printers accelerated time-to-market thanks to its quick-drying capabilities. This is crucial to securing profitable growth and helps textile manufacturers to maintain their competitive edge.”
Also on display will be the company’s best-selling J-Cube range, which comprises a gamut of shades including vivid fluorescents and various shades of black. Developed using the company’s Cluster Technology, which involves ink molecules, consolidated into clusters, passing through the piezo printheads without alteration, J -Cube enables supreme printability, fast-drying and high quality image definition. It is fully compatible with printers equipped with Kyocera, Ricoh, Konica Minolta and Panasonic printheads and available for either transfer or direct-to-fabric printing.
The company will also display its J-Lux series, which is specially engineered with extreme sun and light resistance. It is an ideal ink for certain indoor usage, such as curtains, as well as outdoor textiles and products including umbrellas.
Also on display is the J-Cube KP Direct range, specifically designed for Kyocera printheads. As a direct digital ink, the J-Cube KP Direct is the ideal solution for textile applications that endure scrubbing and washing. With the capability to print double-sided onto many fabrics, the company’s patented EPS series allows equal color penetration into the fabrics in direct-to-textile production and is the company’s most efficient ink.
