Enabling your sustainability goals in textile

Digital printing is well-established in textiles, but brand drive to offer seasonal variation, e-commerce and supply chain efficiency will further increase the digitization of textile print. As a mass consumer product, textile production is under scrutiny as environmental impact becomes a prominent global concern.

The drive for sustainability in textiles is highlighting the impact of dye-based inkjet printing, which requires large quantities of water in the ink production and printing process, high amounts of energy in fixation and washing, and uses harmful chemicals.

Pigment ink technology is a more sustainable alternative for many textile applications. Fujifilm’s RxD® pigment dispersion technology enables the formulation of high performance, robust inks that jet reliably.

Whatever your pigment ink technology requirement, we have a solution for you. Fujifilm provides high performance inks for OEMs and high quality dispersions to independent or vertically integrated inkjet ink formulators.

The future is pigment

The future is pigment

We believe that pigment inks are the best solution for a sustainable future in digital textiles, so that’s where we’re putting 100% of our development effort, to create optimized products.

Pigment textile inks don’t consume the very high quantities of water and energy required in dye manufacture and fixation. They contain no hazardous chemicals and work brilliantly with recycled textiles.

Enabled by RxD® dispersion technology

Enabled by RxD® dispersion technology

The pigment dispersion is the foundation of the ink formulation, and that’s why we develop our own dispersion technology. Fujifilm’s RxD dispersions are highly stable, giving the ink formulator wide latitude to create the optimum ink properties for system and application performance.

Fujifilm textile inks are formulated with RxD dispersions, and we also supply these dispersions to independent or vertically integrated ink formulators.

Advancing pigment performance

Advancing pigment performance

Some properties of pigment prints are not directly comparable to dye-based. However, the actual required softness, density and color vibrancy of your typical applications should be considered, as pigment inks are suitable in many cases.

Through its commitment to pigment ink technology development, Fujifilm is focused on closing the performance gaps to ensure that pigment becomes the mainstream technology.

Enabling your development in digital textile printing

Printhead compatibility

In textile ink developments we work with all the major printhead manufacturers, and our inks and dispersions are suitable for heavy-duty applications including MEMS and piezo printheads.

Pre-treatment

We work with and test a wide range of pre-treatments that optimize finished properties.

Certification

Fujifilm textile inks are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) which supports sustainable fashion, ethical clothing and fair production, and to ECO PASSPORT by OEKO-TEX®, the standard guaranteeing maximum consumer safety.
