In an effort to meet customer demand for more sophisticated and decorative swimwear prints and
lingerie fabrics, as well as to speed up response and custom design times for shorter runs, Hyosung
Corp., Korea, now offers swimwear and lingerie fabrics made with creora® spandex printed using
Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont Imaging Technologies’ DuPont™ Artistri™ 2020 printer. The printer
offers direct-to-fabric printing on an array of woven and knitted fabrics, including spandex — up
to 1.8 meters wide.
“We believe customers will be impressed with the quality and hand of the fabrics printed with
Artistri,” said Greg Vas Nunes, president, Europe and the Americas, Hyosung. “The combination of
our innovation in creora spandex in fabric and the Artistri acid dye ink provide outstanding
washfastness, durability and exceptional color penetration properties, making it ideal for the
intimate apparel and swimwear markets.”
In other news, DuPont Imaging Technologies has appointed England-based Brook International as
a marketing partner for the DuPont Artistri printing system. Brook provides print-ready polyester
fabrics for DuPont Artistri 2020 and 3320 digital textile printers. Fabric end-uses include
banners, flags, signage and in-store displays, as well as other graphic applications.
