Xennia® Emerald has been tested on the most frequently used printers, but users should check the inks’ suitability for individual machines and models.
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate must be kept at 55% or higher and the atmospheric temperature set to 20-25°C (70°F).
After printing, the ink should be fixed by heat at 165°C (330°F) for 150 seconds.
Fixation may differ depending on the textile type and treatment, so fixation conditions should be determined according to the fabric and application requirements.
Emerald inks are designed for optimal open time and print performance, but if ink dries in the nozzles, the normal cleaning procedure built into the printer should be applied. We recommend the use of our specific cleaning solution, Sensient Universal Flush WB.
Careful printer maintenance will ensure optimal printer running. The following operations are recommended:
- Regular check and cleaning of the wiper (at least once a week).
- Regular check and cleaning of the capping station (at least once a month).
- Regular wiping of the printer head bottom with a sponge Q-tip (preferably once a week).
- If you plan to leave the printer in stand-by for more than one week, purging and cleaning it with flush and installing a Parking Flush is advised.
