Direct Color Systems Releases the F6T White Ink With a Continued Focus on the DTG Market
Press release from the issuing company
The new F6T white ink has been optimized for dark garment printing, including synthetic and cotton materials, while maintaining unparalleled rigid substrate print capability.
Rocky Hill, CT USA – Building on their patent pending DTG application with UV LED ink, DCS further refines this ground breaking combination of UV print technology, ink formulation, and process steps with the F6T white ink.
Used in conjunctio n with standard F6 CMYK+Cl inks and compatible F6T Edition Direct Jet UV LED printers, operators are relieved of the task of using harsh chemical pretreatments for dark garments , both synthetic and cotton . The process steps are timesaving, simple, and easy to follow.
“Not only does this release continue to build our momentum in the competitive DTG market, but it also provides another application, or avenue, for our smaller customers to expand their product offerings with a UV LED printer. They can easily g o from ADA - compliant/Braille signage and bottles to wall décor and t - shirts with a single piece of equipment ,” says Matt Sands, Product Manager for DCS. “A lot of hard work and testing went into this release and we are proud of it. We are really excited ab out how the F6T white ink perfor ms in the DTG arena and with rigid materials as well – a wonderful combination.”
