Xennia® Amethyst is suitable for most printers using Kyocera piezo printheads compatible with water-based inks
Sensient’s compliance team can assist with any specific regulatory requirements.
Xennia® Amethyst has been tested on the most frequently used printers, however the suitability of the inks for individual machines and models in each application should be validated by the user with the support of Sensient.
Xennia® Amethyst inks have been specifically developed for direct printing using a belt feed system. Fabrics should be pre-treated prior to printing as described in the technology overview page.
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).
After printing, the print should be dried before undergoing a finishing process comprising of fixation in steam at 100-104⁰C for 8-10 minutes with subsequent wash-off.
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.
