DuPont launches Artistri Brite P5500 for DTG inks at ISS in Long Beach, USA

DuPont is launching DuPont™ Artistri® Brite P5500, the new range for its pigment ink portfolio, at ISS in Long Beach, CA (21-23 January 2022).

Artistri® P5500 ink is specifically designed for DTG (direct to garment) printers, interior decorators and contract service providers who are transitioning or expanding their digital printing operations and want to rely on repeatable, high-quality, long-lasting prints through a reliable, cost-effective printing process.

The new Artistri® P5500 inks deliver the same excellent colour as P5000, but with improved wash fastness when fusing using a heat press or oven and shorter fusing time.
Artistri® P5590 white ink adds extended durability to customer-appreciated coverage effectiveness and stretchability. This wide gamut aqueous ink is designed for printers with piezoelectric printheads and low viscosity and is suitable for all DTG applications, including DTF (Direct to Film).
"The test results speak volumes about the benefits of DuPont™ Artistri® P5500 inks in terms of shorter fusing time, colour gamut volume and wash fastness," said Stephen Richardson, managing director of Impression Technology. "In particular, the outstanding compatibility of these inks with our new printheads raises our expectations for the use of various DTG textile printing products that will be introduced in the near future."
With DuPont™ Artistri® P5500 inks, printers can customise their ink usage to suit the application without sacrificing colour, fastness and repeatability. "We are very pleased to offer a complete solution for leading print performance in all areas that contribute to our customers' success: brilliant, long-lasting colour with less ink and shorter fusing time in the oven and on the transfer press - while maintaining consistency and reliability to reduce operating and maintenance costs," explains Eric Beyeler, Global Marketing Manager for DuPont™ Artistri® Digital Inks.
Key features for DTG printers:
- Brilliant colours: Colour gamut volume> 175,000
- White coverage: L*>92
- Longer shelf life due to improved redispersibility
- Wash fastness to dark shirts (after five washes at 45° C) after transfer press or oven fusing > 4 (scale 0 to 5)
Artistri® Brite P5500 inks are now commercially available.
