Developments in Textile Ink Jet Printing with Pigment Inks
Initial developments in digital textile ink jet printing focused primarily on the development of water soluble textile inks, such as reactive and acids dyes, as dye purification and micro filtration technology was available at the colorant manufacturers. However, as textile ink jet technology develops with increased quality, production rates and new business models, the textile printing industry will require the development of textile pigment printing ink jet inks which “mirror” the conventional textile pigments/binders in technology performance.
The development of textile pigment ink solutions is very much more complex than water soluble dye systems and must be tailored to individual ink jet print head technologies. The present paper will outline developments in textile pigment ink jet printing and indicate how total textile pigment ink systems will have to be developed in the future for specific print head families.

For more than 30 years, IS&T's series of digital printing conferences have been the leading forum for discussion of advances and new directions in 2D and 3D printing technologies. A comprehensive, industry-wide conference that brings together industry and academia, this meeting includes all aspects of the hardware, materials, software, images, and applications associated with digital printing systems?particularly those involved with additive manufacturing and fabrication?including bio-printing, printed electronics, page-wide, drop-on-demand, desktop and continuous ink jet, toner-based systems, and production digital printing, as well as the engineering capability, optimization, and science involved in these fields. In 2016, the conference changed its name formally to Printing for Fabrication to better reflect the content of the meeting and the evolving technology of printing.
