Epson has introduced a new Direct-to-Garment (DTG) pretreatment solution for polyester garments available for Epson’s DTG solutions – the SureColor F2000 and F2100.
The easy-to-use solution keeps with the traditional DTG workflow, while greatly expanding revenue opportunities to include industries that primarily feature 100% polyester garments, such as team sports apparel, activewear, imitation silk and leather and accessories.
“To date, the direct-to-garment industry has been limited to printing on 100% cotton or cotton/polyester blends,” said Timothy Check, Senior Product Manager, Professional Imaging, Epson America, Inc. “This new polyester pretreatment solution will open opportunities for direct-to-garment printing and customization for new industries, as well as open doors to on-site garment customization at sporting events – everything from neighborhood runs to national triathlons.”
Epson polyester pretreatment has been optimized for use with Epson UltraChrome DG inks to produce vivid prints with excellent wash-fastness on both light and dark colored polyester garments. The pretreatment solution is Oeko-Tex Eco Passport certified for product safety to the end consumer, and is free of GHS health risks, making it safe for operators as well.
