Mimaki will be exhibiting two new neon fluorescent inks in yellow and pink, for its TS300P-1800 inkjet textile printers at ITMA 2015 in hall 18, stand C 104.
“The new neon inks are ideal for fashion, sportswear, swimwear and shoes and are specially made for use in the low-volume high-quality sublimation paper transfer market,” a Mimaki press release said.
According to Mimaki, the TS300P-1800 was launched at FESPA and the combination with the new inks opens up a new range of possibilities for textile printers, designers and garment manufacturers.
“Fluorescent colours are in high demand in the fashion and sportswear markets,” Mike Horsten, general manager marketing EMEA at Mimaki Europe said.
“With these new neon inks, designers and garment manufacturers will be able to extend the utility of digital printing solutions to the production of high quality running clothes and other applications,” he added.
“These inks will finally and for the very first time allow producing these high quality specialty products on a larger scale,” Horsten observed.
He further added that as more textile manufacturers learn about these new inks and the quality and capability of digital printing for textiles, they expect demand to take off.
The TS300P-1800 will be running live demonstrations of the new neon fluorescent inks and Mimaki will also be displaying samples of the new neon inks in action for active wear. (AR)
