DuPont has announced two new Artistri inks for drupa: PN1000 Series for commercial printing and P1600 series for Direct to Film and water-based inks for packaging printing. Hazardous chemicals have been removed to the point they are now classified as non-hazardous.

Dupont Artistri P1600 DTF Inks

DuPont logo 140x55 rgb1To commemorate 35 years of delivering innovation and leadership in digital inkjet inks with its Artistri ink products, DuPont has announced the launch of its PN 1000 ink series in time for drupa 2024. The new product series is a set of low viscosity water-based pigment inkjet inks for commercial printing, formulated with proprietary DuPont technology and compatible with industry standard drying technologies.

This new ink set is suitable for book, direct mail, and transactional printing applications and prints a rich black alongside delivering a large color gamut with minimal to no drying, allowing printers to achieve higher speeds to be more productive. The key benefits also include:

  • high optical density on various paper substrates
  • high image quality
  • high durability
  • reliable jetting sustainability

Tucker Norton, Global Business Director, DuPont Printing & Packaging says: “We believe that drupa 2024, the most important printing show in the world, is the perfect place for presenting the newest ink series. With the growth in digital printing, we will continue to innovate, bringing more sustainable solutions that will elevate commercial and textile printing to a higher level.”

On the packaging front, DuPont will showcase its water-based inks for corrugated, folding carton and flexible packaging printing, responding to the emerging demand from conscious converters looking for safer ink alternatives. Developed for the OEMs project needs, these products are ideal for indirect food contact, and are compliant with Swiss Ordinance and EuPIA (European Printing Ink Association). The Artistri water-based pigment inks for packaging printing are manufactured under Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) standards and in ISO 9002-2015 certified facilities.

Sustainability is a key element in DuPont’s portfolio innovation. The company aims to not only offer more environmentally friendly products that will allow printers to choose processes with a lower carbon footprint, but also develop products that are safe and sustainable by design.

Sustainable new formulation

DuPont’s recent 2024 Sustainability Report, published in April, highlights the success of DuPont scientists completing a three-year effort to replace 2-pyrrolidone solvent in inks with safer, non-regulated alternatives while maintaining equivalent performance and shelf life. 2-pyrrolidone, chemical formula C4H7NO, is a highly flammable, hazardous hydrocarbon that can cause eye, skin and respiritory irritation and is used in many other inkjet ink cartridges. In high exposures it can cause nausea, vomiting, dizziness and headaches. In the unlikely event of ingestion, it can be fatal. In removing this chemical from Artistri inks, DuPont scientists have moved inkjet ahead greatly in terms of stant ITFDuPont's display at last year's ITMA expo in Italy

Gabriela Kim, Global Brand and Marketing Manager, DuPont Artistri Digital Inks says: “We are proud to see that this work supports the overarching trends of printers moving to digital printing for consumer products and demonstrates DuPont’s commitment to being ahead of the curve with regard to substances of concern across our portfolio."

DuPont will also exhibit other products from the Artistri portfolio at drupa 2024, such as P1600, the premium pigment inkjet inks for Direct-to-Film (DTF) textile printing. “Within textile printing, there’s a boom with the DTF technology over the last few years due to its versatility and DTF is here to stay, adds Kim. "The P1600 ink series were specially designed for this technology, delivering bright images while giving the consistency and reliability for printers to spend less time with maintenance.”

DuPont will be in Hall 8b on booth B13 at drupa 2024, Messe Düsseldorf, Germany from May 28th to June 7th, 2024.
