US-based DuPont Advanced Printing (DuPont) are to launch the new DuPont Artistri ink for the direct-to-garment (DTG) and roll-to-roll (RTR) printing sectors.

DuPont's new Artistri range includes enhanced Artistri Brite DTG inks that provide enhancements, such as fewer production cycles and brighter colours, to the company's white ink for DTG printing.

The product will enable faster and more reliable digital printing processes for DTG decorators and fulfilment houses.

"These inks deliver both brighter colours and faster printing capability, which provide a competitive advantage for our customers."

The range's Artistri Pigment inks are designed to work in printers with medium and low-viscosity piezo-electric printheads.

The inks are developed for DTG or RTR digital printing on cotton or cotton-rich blends.

DuPont Advanced Printing global marketing manager Eric Beyeler said: "Artistri inks have long been considered best-in-class, and these innovations move the bar even higher.

"These inks deliver both brighter colours and faster printing capability, which provide a competitive advantage for our customers."

The company said that the Artistri inks are offered in both pigment and dye-based formulations that combine DuPont proprietary pigment dispersion, polymer and ink formulation technology.

DuPont plans to launch the new products at the forthcoming drupa 2016 trade fair, to be held from 31 May to 10 June in Düsseldorf, Germany.
