Sun Chemical Affirms Commitment to Sustainable Textile Printing with the Launch of Xennia® Pearl Pigment Inks
Sun Chemical has launched Xennia® Pearl pigment inks for high-speed industrial applications during Innovate 2021 Textile Innovation Week. The range, which includes inks for both mid-viscosity and high-viscosity printheads, has been developed following a careful assessment of the market and specific customer needs, particularly the requirement for high fastness, multi-substrate compatibility, consistent color, and outstanding print performance. As well as addressing core market needs in terms of performance, the range also underlines Sun Chemical’s commitment to sustainability in the textiles industry – offering textile printers a way to significantly reduce water use and chemical waste. Based on proprietary pigments and resins, the inks will support the key application areas of fashion and home textiles – two sectors which are rapidly embracing digital pigment printing, both for the flexibility it offers, and for the huge sustainability benefits it brings.
