Available for the following printheads:
Inks should be stored in a controlled environment at a temperature between 10-30°C. If stored under these recommended conditions, the inks have a shelf life of 12 (twelve) months. If the ink exceeds the shelf life detailed on the bottle, please contact Sensient directly for advice on continued use.
Substrate: 170 g/m2, 100% polyester
Printing resolution: 720 dpi
Transfer conditions: 210°C (410°F) for 30 seconds
The light fastness has been measured at 100% and 10% coverage. All other fastness properties have been measured at 100% coverage. In certain cases, where a chemical pre-treatment has been applied to the fabric or it has been saturated with color, the substrate may perform better in fastness testing after washing. Optimized ink limiting and color profiling will limit this requirement.

The ElvaJet® Swift series has been tested on the most frequently used printers, but users should check the inks’ suitability for individual machines and models.
If the inks dry 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.
For optimal printing, the relative humidity rate should be kept at 55% or higher and the ambient temperature should be around 20°C (70°F).
ElvaJet® Swift inks are designed for transfer to the substrate via any type of sublimation transfer paper or film. Once printed, the transfer paper should be handled with care and the ink transferred to the fabric as soon as possible.
To obtain a good color transfer and fixing, the printed substrate should be transferred at 210°C (410°F) for 30s.
