Sun Chemical develops textile ink

Sun Chemical will launch a range of third-party inks for the soft signage market, Streamline TX. According to Sun Chemical, the direct print sublimation ink provides bright strong colours and dense blacks, both crucial for stand out soft signage applications. The inks also have excellent “show through” properties because of their penetration into the fabric. This has been shown to be a major benefit to flag printers where a similar appearance is achieved when the image is viewed from either side of the fabric.

Tony Cox, Business Manager Aftermarket Products, Sun Chemical, comments: “We talked about Streamline TX at Fespa 2013 and following customer feedback at the show we identified further product enhancements and we’re now ready to bring it to the market. We see Fespa Digital 2014 as the platform to do this. The soft signage market has grown significantly over the last few years and we’ve seen a move towards substrates such as polyester based textile materials which are used for products such as flags, banners and flexible signs. Streamline TX is a great addition to our existing digital aftermarket range.”
