EFI introduces greener pigment process for textile
EFI launched a new industrial textile pigment ink technology for direct-to-textile production. The pigment technology was first unveiled at FESPA 2018.
The new EFI Reggiani pigment ink technology gives users a faster, environmentally friendly production process with inline polymerisation that requires less water, less energy and less processing time, with no washing or steaming needed.
The pigment inks are based on an innovative new binder technology. The inks react to EFI Reggiani printers’ on-board dryers, which set off a unique in-line polymerisation process for faster, greener printing that requires fewer steps than other digital industrial inkjet textile systems.
In addition, the ink’s fastness properties and high printability sharpness will allow printing on a wide range of fabrics with the fine-detail designs.
The new pigment textile solution extends the outstanding range of EFI Reggiani innovations presented during the last 12 months, including the EFI Reggiani FLEXY launched at last year’s FESPA, and most recently, the EFI Reggiani COLORS, a printer offering up to 12 colours.
