Kornit Digital Announces NeoPigment Digital Printing Inks


Kornit Digital has announced a new series of digital inks designed for use with all of its direct-to-garment systems. The new NeoPigment Pure formulation is designed as an organic evolution of the company’s existing NeoPigment process and brings users a host of benefits including increased vivacity, an improved hand feel and a more opaque and smooth reproduction of white.

Kornit Digital’s NeoPigment Pure ink comprises CMYK plus red, green and white and is formulated to supersede the company’s existing ink families by providing colour standards that are closer to ideal LAB values. Improved overall smoothness resulting in an increased gamut of more than 15%, is accompanied by a deeper black (K), while the white ink has greater brightness and opacity with greater coverage.

With a refined hand feel, Kornit’s NeoPigment Pure ink offers reduced post-print odour, and is suitable for use on virtually all fabric types with the added benefit of offering 100% sustainability and biodegradability. The ink is fully compliant with OekoTex 100 and is GOTS pre-approved.

In addition, the new NeoPigment Pure ink has been designed to increase the performance of the Kornit Digital direct-to-garment systems’ print-heads with faster start-up and better reliability. The new ink also offers better wash-fastness, a longer shelf life and the likelihood of waste is vastly reduced. Once commercially available, the new inks will be able to be used with all of Kornit’s direct-to-garment printing systems in the field, without any hardware changes.

Kornit Digital’s NeoPigment Pure ink made its début at FESPA (18-22 May 2015, Cologne) where it was demonstrated on the company’s Avalanche.
