Mohawk Fine Papers, in collaboration with Aurora Specialty Textiles Group, has launched a full range of textile printing substrates optimised for digital printing technologies.
The two US-based manufacturers serving the growing textile digital printing market have combined their expertise to introduce these products, according to a release.
The product line which is called ‘Mohawk Printable Textiles and Canvas, Engineered by Aurora,’ includes a wide variety of high quality textile products engineered to work optimally on the latest digital print technologies for a broad range of end-use applications.
“Mohawk is pleased to partner with Aurora to expand our wide format product offering. Aurora offers a best-in-class portfolio of printable textiles and canvas that allows Mohawk to truly serve as a one-stop-shop for our customer’s wide format printing needs,” Mohawk’s Vice President Digital Mike Madura stated.
The collaboration reflects the rapidly growing demand in North America for textile substrates, such as specialised canvas products for digital printing. The move also reflects Aurora’s leadership position as a North American developer of high quality textile printing products, and Mohawk’s global leadership in the digital printing industry, the company stated.
“Aurora is very excited to partner with Mohawk in providing the North American paper distribution channel with access to a full range of printable textiles and canvas engineered to perform on today’s newest digital printing equipment,” Aurora’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Printable Textiles, Mark Shaney stated.
“Our partnership combines Aurora’s textile coating and finishing manufacturing expertise with Mohawk’s market-leading knowledge in serving the digital needs of the North American paper distribution channel. In summary, our collaboration provides that channel with a “one stop” shop for all their digital print media needs,” he said.
Aurora specialises in developing specialised textile substrates for the latest digital printing technologies and its products are designed for printing on latex, ultraviolet (UV), solvent and dye sublimation printers. It has an established, full line of products to meet application needs in wall graphics, wall coverings, front lit and backlit displays and fine art.
