Elvajet SE100

Professional sublimation inkjet ink range for high speed printing

Inks for ink jet printing using piezo drop on demand technology
Elvajet SE 100 for printing on polyester

The Elvajet SE 100 ink series is suitable for most piezo printers using water-based inks (Epson 9800, Mimaki JV5 et al., Mutoh, Roland).

The following inks are available:
Elvajet Yellow SE 100
Elvajet Magenta SE 100
Elvajet Cyan SE 100
Elvajet Black SE 101

Novel feature
With respect to its predecessor, the S4 Subli series, the Elvajet SE 100 series enable an average ink coverage saving of 30%, which significantly reduces the stress on the transfer paper, thus originating less cockling and needing less drying power.

Ink jet printing
The life span of piezo heads is considerably long and should conform to the manufacturer\'s specification even if inks based on disperse dyes are used. Our inks based on disperse dyes have been tested on the most frequently used printers, but the suitability of the inks for individual machines and models has to be checked by the user. We are at our customers\' disposal for further information.

If the inks dry in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied.

The inks can be printed either directly on to the textile or indirectly via an intermediate substrate.

When the direct printing method is used, the dyes must be fixed by steam or by drying at 210°C (410°F) for 30 seconds. In order to reach optimum fastnesses the material must be washed after the fixation process.

With the indirect method, it has to be taken into account that the light fastness and rubbing fastness of the printed paper or other intermediate substrate are not very good. The printed substrate should therefore be handled with care and transferred as soon as possible after printing. To obtain a good colour transfer and fixing, the printed substrate has to be transferred at 210°C (410°F) for 30 seconds.

The fastnesses have been evaluated on a 170 g/m2 100% PES material. Transfer conditions were 210°C (410°F) for 30 seconds.

To achieve the fastnesses shown on the table below, it is recommended with direct printing that the excess chemicals be eliminated by washing.

Shelf life
The shelf life of the inks at room temperature is superior to six months.
