Digital Ink Sciences, Hemet, Calif., has introduced DIS-150 ink formulations for direct-to-garment (DTG) printers and wide format textile printers, which are designed specifically for the DX5 and DX7 Epson Printheads. According to the company, the inks are low maintenance — resulting in money saved — and offer short cure times compared to other aqueous textile inks. The DIS inks are compatible with heat press and tunnel dryers for curing.
Digital Ink Sciences aims for “Perfect Drop” where less ink is dispersed in to the air, and more ink lands on the shirt to reduce ink waste.
“The DIS150 ink set is surpassing our highest expectations,” said Grant French, business development manager for Digital Ink Sciences. “We’re getting better colors, deeper blacks, and the custom ink formulation is reducing maintenance on the print heads.”
