Stork Introduces Pigment And Disperse Applications

The Netherlands-based Stork Digital Imaging has completed the application line for the Amber printer with the introduction of pigment- and disperse- transfer applications. These two new applications, plus reactive and acid, allow high-quality digital prints on nearly any type of substrate.Pretreatment of the substrate is no longer necessary with the pigment application, and aftertreatment is restricted to the standard heat fixation. The pigments can be used on a wide variety of substrates, including natural and man-made fibers, blends and even Lycra®. Stork says that high light- and wash-fastness levels, similar to those for conventional pigments, can be achieved.With the new disperse transfer application, the Amber printer can print a design on transfer paper. The design is then transferred onto polyester substrates. Again, no pretreatment of the substrate is necessary. Stork claims this is a truly unique way to print polyester with high fastness levels, large color space and pin-sharp details.
