Artistri P1600 inks are ideal for DTF printers

Artistri P1600 inks are ideal for DTF printers looking for a professionally printed product with consistent, vibrant colours on a variety of fabrics. Artistri P1600 DTF ink set allows for profiling with reduced ink volume delivering both efficiency and productivity as equipment runs cleaner for longer. The versatility of the Artistri P1600 is seen in different applications, from cotton to blends and especially polyester, giving printers access to a high-quality ink product for printing on a choice of clothing materials.

Tucker Norton, general manager for DuPont Artistri Digital Inks, said, “With Artistri P1600 DTF inks, garment decorators will not only benefit from brightly printed fabrics, but these water-based inks can help contribute to their sustainability initiatives. P1600 inks were formulated using safer by design principles to assess and evaluate any potential environmental risks, are classified as non-hazardous under GHS and are HAPS (hazardous air pollutants) free. All this is possible through DuPont’s extensive ink formulation know-how, in combination with our best-in-class product stewardship and manufacturing to offer a compatible and reliable product that takes the quality of DTF printing to the next level.”

Gary Weyman, EMEA business leader for DuPont Artistri Digital Inks, added, “Digital printing with pigment inks is gaining more space in textile printing due to minimal water usage which means a lower environmental footprint as it doesn't require steaming and washing steps in the printing process. It is our mission to develop ink innovations that support sustainability in textile printing and, since our pigment inks are granted the Oeko-Tex Eco-Passport certification with ZDHC MRSL Conformance Level 3, it helps enable safer work environments for textile printers. DuPont’s new ink developments strengthen our commitment to pigment inks as the sustainable choice and as our vision for the future of digital textile printing.”
