ink is a new water-based pigmented ink developed by Brookfield, Conn.-based Trident-ITW in
association with North Carolina State University's Department of Textile Chemistry, Raleigh, N.C.
FabricFast may be used with any color printer equipped with an Epson piezoelectric ink-jet
printhead. Using simplified heat fixation of 150°C for two and a half minutes, it is suitable for
cotton, cotton/polyester blends, rayon, nylon and silk fabrics. Benefits of the inks include wash-
and lightfastness, as well as the soft hand usually associated with dye-based inks.
