Zimmer from Austria highlights
COLARIS Pigment inkjet printing for hometextiles
COLARIS digital printing process provides a number of
major advantages: sensational print results, simplified
production, flexibility, environmental protection, resource
conservation and cost savings.
The typical applications for COLARIS digital pigment printing
include all kinds of home textiles, where best light fastness is
needed, such as upholstery, cushions, sun-blinds, tents, etc.
Other application areas include workwear and unforms, with
custom designed camouflage patterns, are digitally printed on
poly-cotton fabrics. Lastly, the pigment can also be used to
print on panels which have an absorbing surface which opens a
lot of new applications for decorative wall art and panels.
According to Zimmer, pigment works on almost any type of
fibres, paper, wood and many materials and there is no special
know-how needed to operate a COLARIS Pigment printer.
It is important to note there is no waste water or use of
solvents, with low energy consumption. There is almost no
wet-process involved and only high temperature is needed for
fixation. In its simplest form, only a 4 colour COLARIS printer
and drying and fixation unit are needed. With only 4 to 6
colours, the best colour strength and brilliance is achieved to
cover the full-colour gamut.
