ElvaJet Swift inks are suitable for printing onto polyester via transfer paper with many large format water-based Epson piezo printers using DX series heads. Swift inks offers a saving in ink coverage, which significantly reduces the stress on the transfer paper, thus reducing cockling and requiring less drying power. This range offers not only the highest performance in term of printability but also the unique possibility of an easy and fast installation.
Sensient s compliance team can assist with any specific regulatory requirements.How to usePrinting
The ElvaJet® Swift series is tested on the most frequently used printers equipped with Epson DX series printheads. The suitability of the inks for individual systems and applications should be validated by the user .
If the inks dry in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied. It is recommended to use our specific cleaning solution (e.g. Sensient Conversion Flush WB).
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate should be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).Fixation
ElvaJet® Swift inks are designed for transfer to the substrate via any type of sublimation transfer paper or film. Once printed, the transfer paper should be handled with care and the ink transferred to the fabric as soon as possible.
To obtain a good color transfer and fixing, the printed substrate should be transferred at 210°C (410°F) for 30s.
