EFI Reggiani’s Terra Solution : Sustainable Green Pigment Inks For Digital Textiles
FREMONT, Calif., October, 2018 – New EFI™ Reggiani TERRA solution from Electronics For Imaging, Inc. is a high-performance digital production offering featuring a new pigment ink set and binder for fast, sustainable, and cost-competitive industrial textile printing.
The newly available offering uses a greener, more-efficient, in-line polymerization process that allows users to print the finest designs using less water, less energy and in less processing time, with no steaming or washing needed on direct-to-textile applications.
Designed to leverage EFI Reggiani digital printers’ market-proven industrial performance capabilities, the TERRA pigment solution provides an extraordinary level of print durability and yield longer printhead life with reduced maintenance costs. The solution also delivers excellent light fastness and high printability sharpness on nearly any fiber type, including cotton, polyester, cotton-poly blends and more. As a result, Reggiani TERRA is a great solution for a wide range of applications, such as fashion, home-textile and accessories.
“Pigment inks for digital printing represent a big step forward for the industry, with the potential to accelerate the analog-to-digital transformation underway in textiles and apparel, especially in markets where eco-friendly processes are a must,” said EFI Reggiani Vice President and General Manager Adele Genoni.
“The new TERRA pigment textile technology is another advancement in the outstanding range of innovations EFI Reggiani has presented over the past year, continuing our heritage of bringing innovation to the textile and apparel industry to make our customers successful in their projects.”
The new pigment inks in the Reggiani TERRA solution are commercially available as a six-color set of cyan, magenta, yellow, black, blue and red, with additional colors coming soon.
At last month’s SGIA Expo, the TERRA solution included an EFI Reggiani FLEXY printer and was part of a complete EFI Textile Eco-System for end-to-end digital textile production on display in booth 301 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The textile technologies on exhibit also included EFI Optitex® 2D and 3D CAD software, EFI Fiery® DesignPro software and EFI Fiery proServer digital front ends.
