Marabu, a leading global manufacturer of liquid coatings and screen, digital, and pad inks, will strive to give answers to specific printing challenges at Fespa 2019 beginning May 14 in Munich. The 4-day print expo will be presenting its portfolio of proven inks and unveiling new solutions for specialised applications in screen, pad, and digital printing.
Marabu will spotlight a number of digital printing inks – particularly its UV-curable and solvent-based options for the latest generation of printers from multiple manufacturers – plus its water-based liquid coatings.
“Sports fans and outdoor enthusiasts continue to set ever higher goals, and clothing and footwear need to keep pace. New high-tech materials must be extremely flexible and hard-wearing – while looking good. Marabu’s Tampa Sport TPSP ink is ideal for decorating these fabrics (e.g.nylon and EVA). It results in a highly flexible film, making it perfect for sports apparel and shoes,” Marabu said in a press release.
Marabu’s Tampa Tex TPX offers very high adhesion and high opacity in conjunction with a flexible ink film. As numerous test prints and quality checks have now demonstrated, this best-selling pad printing ink for textiles is also ideal for other, highly challenging tasks. The extremely carefully sourced, high-purity raw materials mean this line not only complies with the strict specifications of clothing manufacturers, such as Adidas A01 und Nike RSL, it also fulfils requirements for baby products, toys and packaging. As a result, Tampa Tex TPX is no longer restricted to prints on t-shirts, shoes and similar items.
