Durst has announced its P5 Sublifix sublimation inks now have the eco passport by OEKO-TEX.

The P5 TEX iSUB technology features an integrated inline fusing for direct printing on polyester fabrics meaning that no investment is required for external devices as a heat press or calender.

Time and production cost reduction as well as energy savings of up to 50% compared to a traditional process with an external heat press, enable a significant increase in efficiency and reduction in total cost of ownership for the user.

The iSUB contactless technology ensures colour consistency along the whole printing width as well as sharpness of detail in images and text, also blurring or bleeding of colour is virtually eliminated.

Furthermore, the multiroll feature offers a big advantage in media handling, enabling a fast media change through one man operation. The OEKO-TEX eco passport is an independent certification system for chemicals, colorants and auxiliaries used in the textile and leather industry.
