The solution for digital printing of textiles

Enjoy the full advantages of large format digital printing thanks to the ElvaJet® P series, the high performance water-based pigment inks optimized to reach new heights in industrial digital printing on textiles.
ElvaJet P series pigmented inks are available for most large format printers and using a variety of printhead technologies, they offer outstanding performance across a range of applications.

Overview

The ElvaJet P inks series is suitable for printing onto cotton, cotton/PES blends and other textile fibers using most large format water-based piezo printers. Each substrate selected should be of the grade “ready to print” and fastnesses should be checked before industrial production.
Sensient’s compliance team can assist with any specific regulatory requirements.

How to use

Printing

The ElvaJet P series inks have been tested on the most frequently used printers with a variety of print heads. The suitability of the inks for individual system and application should be validated by the user. Sensient is available to support such tests as required. For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate must be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).

Fixation

After printing onto the fabric, the ink should be fixed by heat at 165°C (330°F) for 150 seconds.
Fixation may differ depending on the textile type and treatment and so optimal fixation conditions should be determined for each fabric according to the application requirements.

Maintenance

It is recommended to pay special attention to printer maintenance in order to help ensure the printer’s optimal running. The following operations are recommended:

  • Regular check and cleaning of the wiper (at least once a week).
  • Regular check and cleaning of the capping station (at least once a month).
  • Regular wiping of the printer head bottom with a sponge Q-tip (preferably once a week).

If the inks happen to dry in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied. It is advised to use the recommended cleaning solution.
If you plan to leave the printer on stand-by for more than one week, it is recommended to purge and clean the printer with flush and install a Parking Flush.
