How to use


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.
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate must be kept at 55% or higher and the atmospheric temperature set to 20-25°C (70°F).


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.

Emerald inks are designed to have the best in open time and print perfor-mance but should ink dry in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied. It is recommended to use our specific cleaning solution Sensient Universal Flush WB.

It is recommended to pay special care to the printer maintenance in order to warrant an optimal running of the printer. 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 recommended to use the recommended cleaning solution.
If you plan to let the printer in stand-by for more than one week, it is recommended to purge and clean the printer with flush and install a Parking Flush.


Available for the following printheads
