Avoiding blockages and defects

The Digital Textile Printing Ink you use should fit your printer and printheads perfectly. This makes sure blockages and defects are averted.

The right chemistry for your fabric

Secondly, the fit between ink and fabric is very important. The type of fabric you are going to print dictates which ink type(s) you can use.

Runnability and color gamut

Two of the distinctive factors of ink are runnability and colour gamut. The colour gamut determines how bright the colours are that you can print. Runnability determines that you can print without image defects and without frequent stops to clean the printheads.
