ElvaJet Punch inks are suitable for printing onto polyester via a transfer paper with many large format water-based Epson piezo printers using DX and TFP series printheads. ElvaJet Punch EP is compatible with lightweight, uncoated papers to achieve outstanding results as well as regular coated papers. This range offers not only the highest performance in term of printability but also the unique possibility to print on any Epson head system via both transfer and direct print.
Sensient’s compliance team can assist with any specific regulatory requirements.
The ElvaJet Punch series has been tested on the most frequently used printers equipped with any Epson printhead. The suitability of the inks for individual systems and applications should be validated by the user.
If the inks dry in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied. We recommend using our specific cleaning solution (e.g. Sensient Conversion Flush WB).
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).
ElvaJet Punch inks are designed for direct printing or for transfer to the substrate via any type of sublimation transfer paper or film. If using the transfer method, once printed, the transfer paper should be handled with care and the ink transferred to the fabric as soon as possible after printing.
To obtain a good color transfer and fixing, the printed substrate should be transferred at 210°C (410°F) for 30s.
Inks should be stored in a controlled environment at a temperature between 10-30°C. If stored under these recommended conditions, the inks have a shelf life of 12 (twelve) months. If the ink exceeds the shelf life detailed on the bottle, please contact Sensient directly for advice on continued use.
Substrate: 170 g/m2, 100 % Polyester
Printing resolution: 720 dpi
Transfer conditions: 210°C (410°F) for 30 seconds
The light fastness has been measured at 100% and 10% coverage. All other fastness properties have been measured at 100% coverage. In certain cases, where a chemical pre-treatment has been applied to the fabric or it has been saturated with color, the substrate may perform better in fastness testing after washing. Optimised ink limiting and color profiling will limit this requirement.
