DuPont develops technologically-advanced inks, including inkjet inks for OEM printers and textiles as well as conductive inks and pastes for photovoltaics, displays and flexible and printed electronics.
DuPont is an industry leader in digital inks for OEM printers and textiles. DuPont Advanced Materials is a leader in the area of printed electronics and photovoltaics, where it produces conductive inks and pastes. DuPont Microcircuit Materials (MCM) is developing stretchable and in-mold conductive inks, while DuPont Photovoltaic Solutions features metallization pastes for PV.
During the 2019 ISS Show, DuPont Advanced Printing showcased its Artistri pigment- and dye-based digital inks for textiles, including its new DuPont Artistri Brite Direct to Garment (DTG) ink. The company also exhibited its DuPont Artistri Xite RTR pigment ink, including recently launched roll-to-roll pigment inks.
“Our recent Artistri Brite P6000 DTG ink set gamut expansion and a sneak peek at our newest dark polyester DTG offering are just two examples of our ongoing innovations to support this important and fast-growing market,” said Eric Beyeler, global marketing manager – digital printing.
