Huntsman Textile Effects Launches New TERASIL® Inks to Allow Truly High-Speed Sublimation Transfer-Paper Printing

SINGAPORE  — February 6, 2014 — In a first for the global textile industry, Huntsman Textile Effects is enabling true industrial-speed dye sublimation transfer-paper printing with the launch of its new TERASIL® Subli XKS inks.

Designed specifically for the Kyocera high-speed printing head, the TERASIL® Subli XKS inks use a simple waterless application system that ensures excellent runnability and consistency at speeds up to 30 meters / min, with excellent color depth.

These new Kyocera-approved inks allow dyehouses to adopt industrial-scale sublimation printing as an alternative to direct printing, which is both time consuming and water intensive, requiring as much as 60 to 80 liters of water to produce 1 kg of high quality printed polyester goods. The new inks thus make it possible for textile producers to improve their competitiveness and environmental performance while also capturing a share of the growing global market for high-quality dyed polyester products across diverse sectors, including apparel, sportswear, signage and flags.

“Developed by Huntsman Textile Effects in close cooperation with leading printhead and digital equipment manufacturers such as Kyocera and MS, the new TERASIL® Subli XKS inks deliver excellent results through a simplified application process that entirely eliminates the need for water during printing,” said Kevin Myers, Global Marketing Manager for Inkjets. “We expect these new inks to significantly boost customers’ digital printing capabilities and to help drive sustainability across the textiles sector.”
