Kiian Digital presented its new fluorescent range of Digistar sublimation inks at FESPA China and CSGIA 2014 (November19 – 21, Poly World Trade Expo Center Panzou, Guangzhou). Designed to meet the demand for attention-grabbing graphics on sportswear and other textile applications, the new inks offer excellent drying properties and high chromatic performance.
Examples of high-quality graphics produced with the recently-launched Digistar K-One range were also on display on the Kiian Digital stand. The K-One inks have been specially formulated for use with high capacity Kyocera piezo-electric print heads, and this event marks the first time this new range being showcased in Asia.
The new Digistar K-One range is ideal for large-format print applications. Designed for industrial printing environments, this range offers speed, reliability and colour consistency and dries quickly to increase production efficiency. Digistar GEN-R, developed specially for use with RICOH printheads, also offer speed and reliability for high-volume printing. As with all Kiian ink ranges, GEN-R inks also enable users to produce high-quality images on an extensive array of substrates.
Visitors were also provided with details about the new Kiian Digital office in Shanghai. Demonstrating Kiian Digital’s commitment to the Asian market, the new office will be staffed by a dedicated sales and support team, managed by Martin Swift, and provide customers in Asia Pacific with easier access to Kiian’s latest product ranges, market knowledge and professional customer service.
Alessandra Borghi, Sales Director at Kiian Digital said, ‘Fluorescent inks create powerful, vivid graphics and textile printers using them have a clear competitive edge. The fluorescent inks can be used for sportswear, fashion and interior décor applications and users can respond to specific customer demands and add value with personalised and limited edition products. Digital textile printing is becoming an increasingly important factor in fashion and interior décor where colour, performance and immediate availability are crucial.
