Ultra High Viscosity: rewriting the rule book for textile inkjet printing
- Xaar’s technology platform ImagineX is changing the rules for ink formulation enabling the jetting of fluids with significantly higher viscosity – up to 100cP at jetting temperature – and much higher pigment loading.
- This high viscosity capability radically increases the opportunity for fluid formulations, meaning that developers and chemists can now select from a much larger cupboard of ingredients.
- From UV inks requiring less curing energy to aqueous inks containing high pigment loading and a lower ratio of water, inkjet is now able to deliver the performance, sustainability and innovation demanded, rewriting the rule book for textile printing.
