NUtec added to its water-based dye sublimation ink range with fluorescent options – fluorescent yellow and fluorescent pink. The Aquamarine AQ10-DST-HC ink is a dye sublimation range developed for use on Epson DX4, DX5, DX6, DX7, 5113, PrecisionCore TFP, XP600 & EPS3200 printheads, and is optimised for transfer printing on coated and uncoated transfer paper. Recommended applications include activewear, interior décor textiles, graphic arts and soft signage using substrates with a minimum of 60% polyester content.
“We are seeing an exponential increase in demand for digital textile printing as companies look for more sustainable and waste-reducing ways to do business,” NUtec Sales and Marketing Director Neil Green said. “The shift from traditional to digital printing in the textile industry allows for rapid small sample testing, short runs with quick turnaround times and less stockpiling at warehouses. This is preferred in the fashion and interior décor industries as it will result in general waste reduction, while time to market is improved. This trend is encouraging for NUtec as we choose to invest in new products and innovations for this sector, the latest being our fluorescent specialty inks offering.”
