The new process manages polyester applications without any compromise on run size, design, substrate or labor
Kornit Digital Ltd., a worldwide market leader in digital textile printing innovation has reportedly unveiled the Kornit NeoPoly Technology which is termed as the industry’s first digital, industrial process for top-quality printing on polyester.
Seemingly, in the overall T-shirt market, Polyester is the second largest category and plays a vital role in the sports segment as well as is expanding its reach in the functional apparel and athleisure segments. Presently, polyester is printed mainly by analog solutions which create sustainability challenges and major technological cost.
Citing reliable sources, these challenges are addressed by Kornit NeoPoly Technology with a new process and ink set implemented in the prominent Kornit Neo Pigment ™ process. Its new process manages polyester applications without any compromise on run size, design, substrate or labor.
Apparently, this technological innovation is achieved by a chemical and physical process, and innovative ink set that is specially developed for curing low temperature while polyester enhancing functionalities are developed to maintain the characteristics of fabric and provide high quality fastness.
This unique process helps in preventing dye migration on polyester. The inks are Eco-Passport and Oeko-Tex certified and do not contain other toxic ingredients or PVCs, sources mentioned.
One of the first customers of Kornit to embrace the NeoPoly Technology is DTG2Go, a Delta Apparel company and a leading direct-to-garment printing and fulfillment marketplace.
The very first system which was equipped by the NeoPoly Technology is the new Kornit Avalanche Poly Pro, a member of Kornit’s well established, highly productive industrial platform. Poly Pro is the absolute system for the industry as it enables easy and affordable short-runs and on-demand printing on polyester garments.
Reports indicate that the new Avalanche Poly Pro of Kornit will be launched on 3-4 April at Discover events of Kornit in the New York city and on 11-12 April in Duesseldorf, Germany and 15-17 April in Hong Kong. In addition, the system will also be publicly displayed and described in ITMA Barcelona, Fespa Munich, and CITPE China.
