Knowledge sharing on textiles inks
and print heads
In textile ink usage, printing problem and filtering solution
have always plagued users. The reason for the breakdown of
textile digital printing is extremely complex, there are ink
salting out, hydrolysis, reunion, filter fibre shedding and
other conventional problems, and there are issues like
compatibility, ink raw materials and other problems, even the
inkjet filter selection and the installation are closely related
with the ultimate print quality. The organisers have thus
invited senior sales manager, Mr Chen Xincan in Hangzhou Kebaite
Filtering Equipment, to share knowledge about filtering of
textile inks with the TPF2017 audience.
At present, paint is the second largest pigment material
after dyes in the textile industry. And in the case of textile
printing, paint printing has 80% market share globally. In this
context, Li Jianfa, International Marketing Director in China of
National Glazed Group, will speak on ‘the application and case
analysis of paint ink on digital printing.
He will also share the composition of paint ink, coating
process of coating ink and application of coating ink in blended
and man-made fibres.
The authoritative ink and nozzle suppliers in the industry
will be specially invited to attend the seminar presided by Dr
Philips. The audience will get the opportunity interact with
industry experts and top brands and put forward the problems
encountered in the application.
