ElvaJet Swift inks are suitable for printing onto polyester via transfer paper with many large format water-based Epson piezo printers using DX series heads. Swift inks offers a saving in ink coverage, which significantly reduces the stress on the transfer paper, thus reducing cockling and requiring less drying power. This range offers not only the highest performance in term of printability but also the unique possibility of an easy and fast installation.
Sensient’s compliance team can assist with any specific regulatory requirements.
The ElvaJet® Swift series is tested on the most frequently used printers equipped with Epson DX series printheads. 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. It is recommended to use our specific cleaning solution (e.g. Sensient Conversion Flush WB).
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate should be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).
ElvaJet® Swift inks are designed for transfer to the substrate via any type of sublimation transfer paper or film. Once printed, the transfer paper should be handled with care and the ink transferred to the fabric as soon as possible.
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.
