The Xennia Emerald series of pigment is suitable for printing onto cotton, cotton/polyester blends and other textile fibers. Xennia Emerald inks are tested and validated for use on Kyocera and Epson printhead technologies and on most large format printers using the Kyocera and Epson printheads.
The Xennia Emerald series has been tested on the most frequently used printers, the suitability of the inks for individual machines and models needs however to be validated by the user.
